Even though it's still super hot here, I realize that fall fashion is starting to hit stores. Fall is probably my favorite season. I've always said I should live in a colder climate since I love all the knits and boots, scarves, jackets, etc. I think this skirt will be perfect for work once the weather cools down a little. It's just so comfortable! I got it in size XS.
So I think the length of the skirt is perfect since it hits right below the knee. It feels like a thicker, more substantial material. So it's definitely not see-through. The heavier material also can hide some lumps and bumps. Because of that, I think the $78 price tag is actually not bad.
The waist is a wide elastic band in black:
There is also a thin black hem at the bottom:
I'm not sure why the gray colored lines make a long, kind of tear-shaped pattern, but I guess it's the way the material is cut. I think it looks a little distracting, but at least it's the same on both sides.
Here's the pattern super close:
It gave me an idea... can't I wear it inside out and get a completely different look for the price of one skirt?? LOL!
Well... the side seam is kind of problematic. It's obviously not meant to be worn inside out:
But since it's a knit material, it actually doesn't look that bad if you are not looking super up close at it. In fact, if you are a little bit of a distance away, you can't really see the seam at all:
Here's the front:
And back... obviously the tags would need to be cut off if it were to be worn this way:
The second item I'm going to share today is this Rachel Roy Scarf Blouse in bright blue that I got from Macy's a couple weeks ago. I really like it!
I wore it for the first time on Saturday, while buying the above skirt from Nordstrom! Haha. This is the exact outfit I wore, complete with my Joe's Niyah skinny jeans and Mansur Gavriel bucket bag:
This top looks light and flowy, but it's actually a heavier material that is somewhat stiff. I like it though. It drapes very well. I also really like the color combo:
It's also lined with this turquoise color underneath:
I actually bought this top right off of the mannequin lol. They only had size L left at the store, and the mannequin was wearing a size M. I normally wear size S but I held up the top and thought M would be fine so I bought it without trying. I think it did turn out pretty well! I probably would not have liked a size smaller. I love the looseness and the length is perfect. The full price of $79 seemed a bit high to me though. Luckily the store was offering 25% off or something, so I got it for around $50.
While browsing the Macy's website, I noticed they have the same top in different colors, and some of them are on sale! This fuchsia ocean combo is only $39:
The "multi combo" is $54:
Those 2 prints are not bad at all! There are also a bunch of different solid colors for $69, not on sale.
I can wear this top on its own, or under a jacket or cardigan for work. I like the versatility!
I am also now anxiously awaiting the weather to cool down, so I can wear my sweater skirt!
