Plaid Wool Skirt Revival

I've had a hankering for plaid.
Last week, I found something that I used to wear soooo long ago.  I'm not even going to tell you when I wore it or you're gonna scream.  Have you ever rediscovered something that you absolutely adored before and now are delighted to find?  And even more exciting was that it fit!  
It was a perfectly chilly day for wool and almost as easy to put together as a dress.  It was one of those non-make-up days where I had to rush somewhere super early and attend to a burdensome load of things, hence no time for bells and whistles.  I figured that If I threw my hair up in a quick chignon and wore sunnies, no one would be the wiser.  By the time I got to taking pics for you, my chignon was withered by the weather and more of a chig-not, but the progression represents so much of how the day went, so I'll go ahead and post;)
 Anyhow, I think the skirt pretty much held the spotlight...

Turns out, it was so much fun to wear!  Love that it is made so well, it wears like new.  I'm so glad that I decided to take it out to play.  What do you think?



  1. You look great! Love that you kept the rest of the outfit simple. You're lucky it was still chilly enough to rock this skirt!

  2. I just love you Josie girl. I can always count on you to be chillin with me;) Actually, it's bordering on impractical to even wear a heavy jacket here.

  10. Great look! I love the shoes!!

    As for my bangs, I don't like it when my bangs are longer than eye level. I prefer straight across bangs because they don't give me headaches! Have you tried straight across bangs?
