The skirt was inspired by one that I saw on Matches Fashion.com. Theirs was silk. Mine is definitely not. A few days after having seen the fabulous silk skirt with bold black and white horizontal stripes on the website, I was walking through Fabricland, and this black and white stripe jumped out at me. It's a polyester knit with texture. The price was definitely right - for an on-a-whim skirt. And so, the fabric came home.

The sweater is a Pamela's Patterns Perfect T-shirt hack in some unknown mix of fibers, but with a definite touch of angora. (This one hasn't been on the blog before.)
Belted with a suede tie belt. (Belts always seem to finish off the outfit.)
Over top I wore the white wool coat. (And yes, the pockets have now been moved higher to where they belong.)
Overall - a decidedly un-Fall-like palette, but I was nice and cozy for the nippy weather that has settled in here.
If you want a good laugh ... This is what I was wearing - heels and all - while mopping out the floor of the washroom in the church hall early in the afternoon. There was a "situation" that needed to be dealt with, and apparently one has to be decked out in heels and ankle-length skirt to be up to such a task.
