Saturday’s weather didn’t last long and it was back to almost 80 degrees here yesterday.  I didn’t mind wearing sandals but I just couldn’t wear a tank top or summer skirt again.  This lightweight cotton skirt in Fall colors seemed like a good compromise.   I have always worn this skirt with either a shade of teal (to pick up the flowers), brown, or white.   But, inspired by the more daring color play of both E. and S. with their floral skirts, I chose this bright purple and love the result.  It think, combined with the thick leather belt, the color combination gives this extremely casual and inexpensive skirt a more sophisticated look and makes it all a little more autumnal.

My weather widget promises a cool, sunny week ahead so watch for corduroy and scarves coming soon!

    It finally cooled off here, and I’m psyched to be wearing cashmere! Love the autumnal tones in that skirt, and the gorgeous, vibrant purple top.

    Love it! It’s always good to mix up colours you wouldn’t usually expect to go together!

    It’s still summer here too! None of the leaves have changed colours at all! Thankfully it is not getting below 20 during the day. Woot!

    Love that skirt! Don’t be wishing for cold weather TOO soon; it’s FREEZING in Chicago and I would kill for some sunshine.

    That’s an amazing look. Love the colors of the skirt and how it looks paired with the top.

    Besides your beautiful skirt and top, I love all of the colors in this photo. The natural colors in the background compliment your outfit so well.
