So you can probably tell by my windswept hair in this photo that the weather today is a blustery foretaste of winter to come here in Perth!
On a whim this morning while trying to decide what to wear, I put this op shop skirt on under the purple heather dress and it felt so warm and cosy I kept it on. And I really like how the three striped layers of colour looks from top to bottom of this outfit. Previously I wouldn't have thought of wearing a skirt under a dress but I think it works in this case when both are straight and plain and in lovely toning colours. They look a little off-parallel here, but trust me, that is the wind effect and the hems actually line up quite well indoors!
And remember when I announced I would be replacing the lining of this skirt because of its annoying tendency to cling to my legs? Well today being so brisk and all, the lining-clinging-to-the-legs feature of this skirt turned out to be a plus. Toasty warm legs! The lining's going to stay after all!
