A Pretty Little Fall Skirt

I have been waiting for the weather to cool down here, just enough for me to be able to wear this cute little skirt. It's color scheme screams fall and it's completely covered with an acorn and leaf motif. I found this last year, just as the weather was getting warmer. Believe me, I have looked at it, walking by my closet hundreds of times over the summer months, and said, "I can't wait to wear that!"

So here it is, even though it may be slightly still to warm here in Arizona, I just couldn't wait any longer!

It's a thicker quilt like fabric, and garnished with a thin black lace piping around the edges and dainty round black buttons, and it came with it's matching belt! (bonus)

My black patent leather t-strap flats and 1950s vintage purse, added the finishing touches.

Since it was a little warmer than most places outdoors, by this time of year. I paired it with a short sleeve blouse. This black & white peter pan collar top was the perfect addition for now, but I have a cute  sweater and some tights picked out for a later-cooler date, you will just have to wait and see!

  1. Gorgeous outfit.

    We're just coming out of winter here in Australia and it appears that whether you are North or South, we all in our trans-seasonal stuff right now.

    Nice to be able to take inspiration from the other side of the world and apply it immediately. I've spent the last six months rugging up, watching wistfully as the rest of the world frolicks in bikins etc. :)

  2. Very cute skirt!! I love the pattern colors and rickrack on it! Also, your blouse is darling.
