Have you been looking at the poppy No. 2 pencil skirt in wool, wondering what goes with it? I loved the shade when I saw it in-person. I loved it so much I didn't even care that I couldn't think of 3 pairings and that I keep buying the wool pencil skirts, but never wear them. I do better w/the pencil skirts in the spring/summer as they don't require tights. The skirt wasn't final sale, so I have time to commit to the reality check. I probably won't and will end up keeping it for my museum. Especially after I saw these pairings with things I own:
With the Sera top (4) and the Target version of the pearl cluster necklace we all lost our ish over back in...2009? Similar pearl cluster necklaces by Kenneth Jay Lane ($120), ABS/Allen Schwartz ($95) and Baublebar (gold, $28)
With the silk French hen blouse (review)
With Old Navy's Liberty-like lightweight patterned shirt in multi ditsy. Which is similar to J Crew's Liberty shirt in Margaret Annie floral (current promo $120). I am very happy w/my ON shirt (M). The arms are fuller from the elbow down than would be in a J Crew top and what I prefer, but I often roll them up anyway. The rest of the blouse fits nicely and leaves me with no worries about how I'm looking in my 'new' body.
With the boy shirt in dots (6). Someone mentioned the dots feeling faded and the shirt flimsy. I didn't feel it was flimsy. It's lightweight, but doesn't feel too thin. The weight allows fluidity and is better for tucking than a more stiff oxford style. As far as the dots, I like that they blend in more with the chambray than stand out like... I dunno...measles comes to mind. The kind Marcia had on the Brady Bunch. Very spotty. In this case I prefer faint spots ;)
As for what shoes go with the red skirt, I would lean towards a light nude like these by Corso Como
..and a darker brown...which is also a nude... MK Michael Kors ($66.99). And of course black would work in some cases. I would lean towards brown shades in the hopes of looking taller.
