Green Flippy Skirt

I attended a co-worker's "retirement do" today.  There were other retirees and some people who had gotten laid off earlier in the year.  I noticed that the people who are no longer working are in great shape!  One person lost 15 pounds (since February)!  The computer industry is very sedentary so it seems that not having to work allows time for other activities - something to look forward to.

It was a bit windy for my outfit, but the weather was too nice for my usual thick solid tights and fall clothing.

This skirt I got when I was in a green-buying phase.  It's a light floaty flippy floral skirt with a bit of a ruffle hem.

I like this light-ish shade of green - it's summery but not overly bright.  Nothing wrong with bright colours, but sometimes you just want to wear something more subdued.

So now that I've done 2 days without a scarf, I thought it would be okay to wear one again.  Not sure if there is too much going on around the neck area.

And finally Big J has been moving our patio furniture around so here is a sitdown shot:

The seat cushions were super cheap - $6 each at Jysk, so we bought 3 for the bench and another 4 for the chairs.  This type of quilted with a button cushion is normally quite expensive up here in Lotusland.  They are well padded too and have not lost their shape over 3 summers of use.

  1. What a pretty skirt! I love the ruffly hem.

    You always wear scarves so nicely - I just can't get the hang of wearing them casually like that!

    1. Thanks Sheila! You always accessorize everything so well you don't need a scarf!

  2. I love skirts like this that seem to flirt with the knees when you walk. I'm glad to hear about the retirees being in such great shape. It's a move I'm considering making before next May.

    1. Yes! me too, sort of adds a bit of flounce where there is normally none. I was surprised that the retirees were all in better shape. Not having to work must be good for you.
