WIW: The Forgotten Skirt

I think one positive thing about having a tiny closet is finding things that were put up in the wrong spot and *missing* for a season or two.  Some closet mining last night produced this long lost fave. The skirt in real life is a warm amber color, with some rust, not as mustard as it looks in the photo.

It's warm today, so I went without tights or hose -- I also couldn't find a suitable nude pair this morning so I went without.  I did stop and buy some *just in case* the naked leg look didn't go over in the office, but I haven't had any second looks. I grabbed the jacket in case it was cool, but have not worn it since I walked in.

    Love this! The belt is fab for showing off your waist and I love the snake print. I know you didn't wear it much today, but I think the jacket hits you just at the right  point on your hips and booties are lovely finishing touch.

    Isn't it great to find an old favorite?  Your legs look flawless w/o hose -- no bruises, scars, bulges, etc.  I'm envious.

    Oh I love it both with and without the jacket! :) I really like that you picked a belt and shoes that could stand up to the strong snake print & how your jewelry brings a touch of brightness to your face.

    Thanks all, This is my first time trying booties with no tights or anything (though I had on black ankle socks). I never did put on the hose, I have the worst luck when it comes to picking colors that might match.

    This is really cute on you.  Love it when I find a lost "treasure" in my closet!  I like this especially without the jacket - shows off your waist that way!  Also, the booties look great on you.

    Great outfit! The skirt is gorgeous and flattering on you; love how you've styled it with the belt and booties. I like the outfit without and with the jacket--nice!

    Mm, LOVE that skirt on you!  Great new-old find!  This happened to me this week with a couple pair of jeans that had fallen behind a shelf.  (-:
