remix: thrifted floral skirt

Tuesday, September 3

I'm baaaaack! Before I load you with Labor Day tales, today I'm linking up Audrey at Putting Me Together for a "One Piece Many Ways" post! Now presenting, my very first remix!

I picked this skirt up at my neighborhood ThriftSmart for about $2. I was initially drawn to it because the side buttons up into a flattering high-waisted fit (though I'm sure upon it's original purchase from Old Navy in the 90's, it was meant to be worn at the hips).

Since that time, it has become an item in my closet that I would put into the category of "surprisingly versatile". I've managed to style it into outfits for "fall" (in quotations because it's still in the 90's over here), full-blown summer, and winter.

FALL: With a small floral print in simple black & white, this skirt is a dream for pattern-mixing! I loved the combo of plaid + floral and wearing a necklace over my shirt. As I mentioned, this outfit is prematurely fall because I am a responsible blogger, but I can't wait to duplicate it when the red plaid is perfectly seasonal and I'm matching leaves and scarecrows!

SUMMER: I am the queen of one-too-many graphic tees, and I'm always trying (or, struggling) to make them still relevant in my wardrobe. This fun tee sent over from my Uncle was the perfect complement to my breezy chiffon skirt, and guided my expertly through a trip to SF (see the full post here!)

WINTER: When I bought this skirt I was equally excited to wear it with tights in the winter. I have to say it's worked out better for me without tights, but Winter is coming again and so is round two! I'm thinking black tights and simple flats may work better (see the funnest outfit shoot of my life, here)!
