I am finally working my way through all my scores from the after Christmas sales. This skirt is an Apt. 9 from Kohl's clearance for $9.60. Oxblood (or what I like to call burgundy) was a hot trend for fall, but I like the color no matter what the trends say. I wanted to let the skirt be the focus, so black was my choice for the remaining of the outfit. Wearing sweater tights and a pleated almost silky type skirt are not a good match. The static electricity was out of control! My tights have had a heavy dose of hairspray and static guard to combat the problem. My biggest fear was that I would have the skirt ride up for everyone to see my butt, ha ha!
Another thing that has never made it to the blog is a lot of my outerwear. I just don't think to show my coats much. This was a yard sale find a couple of summers ago for $2.00. It has turned into one of my favorite winter coats. The length is perfect for wearing dresses and skirts and I love the military inspired buttons. When it's 100 degrees outside and you see a winter coat, it's the last thing you want to buy, but I am glad I was able to forsee it's potential when it's freezing outside!
Do you have a favorite winter jacket that you wear all the time?
