So, I ended up wearing this outfit to the grocery store. Haha. Sure, I could have put on jeans and a t-shirt, but I like to dress up. *shrug* ^_^ I feel like I've been waiting forever to wear this plaid high low skirt and I'll be damned if I sit around waiting for the "right occasion" to do so. The right occasion is whenever I say it is. So, there. Hehe. We had a lot of errands to run, so I wanted to wear something nice, but also comfortable. The skirt worked out well with its light fabric and eye catching patterns.
The skirt has a very rustic feel to it and this inspired me to create an earthy Fall ensemble with a bit of a Wild West flair. So, I added a thrifted herringbone wool blazer and dark chocolaty lace up boots.
I liked the way this handmade necklace peeked through my blazer when I had it completely buttoned, so I added it to the mix. I thrifted it many years ago when I visited Toronto and I just loved that the artist refashioned everyday refuse into something so beautiful. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the logo on the beer cap, it's from Alexander Keith's which is brewed in Halifax, Nova Scotia. ^_^
You know how I like to add hidden surprises in my outfits, so this bit should be expected. :D I think this deep navy tank top paired well with the textured almond blazer. I didn't want to take away from the beautiful skirt by wearing something with a pattern on top. So, the understated look of it from the front was perfect. However, as soon as I take off my blazer, you see a bit of wow factor in the back as it is completely sheer with floral patterns throughout. You can sort of see my bra there, but whatevs. Heh.
So, there you have it. I hope you like how I put this outfit together. *^_^* I loved wearing it! <3
