A rare occurance

I wore a skirt to work on Thursday.  I can't remember the last time I wore a skirt to the office, probably a couple of years ago, summer time.

I saw this look on a very chic woman last year, and thought to myself "I could knit a vest like that" so I did, but never got the courage to put it all together.  Now vests are in according to A Femme d'un Certain Age so  that's a bonus, and the skirt I purchased last winter on sale still fits which is also a good thing.  Adding knitted bulk around my middle, plus a belt is perhaps not so flattering.  But it was warm and cozy, and at least I pushed my comfort limit a little.

Photo taken in the room I'm renovating, for an uncluttered background.  Then Rory got in the best shot anyway;)


  1. I like this look...very pulled together. I like to have a 3rd piece, a vest or sweater or a jacket...
    in my case it gives my wobbly middle bits more coverage!

  2. This outfit looks perfectly ok to me. Why have you avoided skirts? I own none, as I simply don´t have any use for them.

  3. Hostess - thank you, I need to remember to add that third item more often.

    Metscan - partly it's my job. I am a project manager for large landscape work in city parks, so I have to go on construction sites. Safety boots look really silly with skirts!!! But partly it's this comfort thing, I'm used to pants; I get in a rut.

  4. I think this is a great look - you don't look bulky at all!

    You should wear a skirt more often - you've got great legs!
