Today I chose the second gift that wonderful Sheila (of Ephemera) sent me (see the first one here): a yummy silk blouse by Talbots. It fits me perfectly, thank you Sheila! And in her honor, I am pattern-mixing it with my favorite hounds-tooth midi skirt. I am actually assigning this skirt to the "Neutrals" category, because it "goes" with every darn top in my closet. Whee, breaking rules at my advanced age!
A belt pulls the look together, I think. I am also showing my little GAP faux-fur jacket as a topper. I thrifted it a couple of years ago, and I love to pull it out of the closet for the 6 - 10 cool days we have down here. For footwear, boots of course. As long as I can extend boot season on either side of the calendar, I will do it!
I read in one of my fashion/style books that when wearing boots with a skirt the "rule" is: for form-fitting skirts, show a little skin (or hose) between the hem of the skirt and the top of the boot. For full skirts, like mine, it's OK to have the skirt cover the top of the boot. What do you say?
