Anne says “carrot”. Whitney et al say “fall colors”. I say “Pinterest it is”!
Although I love the warm tones of fall – lush oranges, rich browns, delicious olive – they simply do me no favors. I have to be clever and utilize them with my tried-and-true jewel tones close to my face so I don’t look ill and jaundiced.
So you can imagine my pleasure when I spotted the Pinterested inspo pic. That blue is right up my alley, and it’s a novel (at least for me) pairing that I would never have thought of myself. Then again, I should know better – TARDIS blue goes with just about anything.
I’m warming to the true length of this skirt. I used to hike it all the way up to the girls because I thought fun-sized, little ol’ me couldn’t do the midi, but I think the slim silhouette and slight flare at the bottom of this trumpet skirt saves it and me from potential frump-dom.
I fear fussing with the skirt all day, however. It’s lined but not very substantially, so all the creases and divots from my tucked in blouse and cami show a bit too blatantly for comfort. I may just end up throwing on a completer piece in the form of a cobalt cardi to ease my mind.
