I love the idea of a winter white skirt. Practically speaking? Not so much. For one, I can’t keep anything white clean (remember my white pant disaster?). Second, I’m not a fan of tights with a winter white skirt.
This J.Crew No.2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge wool is really a fall/winter fabric making it not as versatile as a skirt that is made of ponte or a lighter weight wool. Fall and winter means skirts must be worn with tights more often than not and there is no way around it (at least where I live). I’m on the fence about keeping this, but here are a few outfit ideas that I came up with using pieces I currently have in my closet in trying to decide whether I should either keep or return it.
Smart Set Turtleneck (Dark Green, size XS)(similar here in cashmere from Bloomies) / Ann Taylor LOFT / Marc Fisher Kevins Boots / J.Crew No.2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Wool / Michael Kors Runway Watch / Le Chateau Ring
Like a lady:
LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Amelie Pumps / Botkier Charlotte Clutch(similar here) / Forever21 Bracelet / Banana Republic Horsebit Link Necklace / Banana Republic Factory Sweater / J.Crew No.2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Wool
Printed blouse and blazer (bad hair moment):
Boxy sweater (sorry about the wrinkles, I found it under a pile of clothes):
I’m obviously not having a hard time coming up with outfits. I think I’m just having buyer’s remorse over all the stuff I’ve purchased the last two months, and I still need to buy a suit (or two) for the new job I’m starting in the new year. I’m trying to figure out what, if anything, I can return and not regret later; however, the more outfits ideas I come up with for this skirt, the more I fall in love with it.
