This outfit felt familiar … and, sure enough, there was a reason for it. I wore the same colour combo almost exactly a year ago. At least I switched up the shoes this time.
I loved wearing this outfit, and a big part of the reason was this skirt. Double serge wool skirts from J. Crew are my jam. I love the punchy colours, and the material is perfect for our cooler seasons. I found this skirt for under $30 at consignment and while it’s a size bigger than my usual, I like the slightly looser fit. I think I am actually in between sizes at J. Crew at the moment; while size 4 fits my waist best, I tend to get some wrinkling across the hips, especially when I sit down. I haven’t noticed the same problem with this size 6; it does sit lower on my torso, which means it hits me a little lower at the knee than I’d like, but it’s a small price to pay to avoid expensive alterations.
