A Little Ladylike Rebellion

Daily Outfit for Wednesday, April 27, 2011

You may be wondering how in the world this is rebellious but I’ll have you know that it was not that warm today and the wind is still blowing so I’m being quite rebellious with my skirt and bare legs:

So, there, Mother Nature!  Wind and rain or not, I’m wearing skirts and I’m wearing them sans tights!  I chose to break out my favorite pleated skirt (vintage/thrifted) again today because I absolutely adore it.  The first time I wore it I thought it was tomato red, today it looks coral and photographed a sort of neon-coral.  Basically, I have no idea what color it is, but I paired it with an indigo, ruffled tank (Old Navy), layered under a cream cashmere sweater (Forte Cashmere) with Mary Jane wedges (Corso Como) and gold hoop earrings.

I have to say, this skirt held it’s own with the wind today.  The longer length helped to cover my bare legs a bit and, as I’d hoped, was less prone to getting blown over my head while riding my bike.  So, if you’re still resistant to midi skirts, remember, they’re less likely to flash your panties than a shorter skirt.   Something to consider, I’d say.  Unless you're into flashing, which is your business.  No judgement here.

In other news, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for your input yesterday – I’m going to continue to post the brand and store for my outfits, but won’t worry about links.  And I wanted to thank Ferge for taking my photos today and Kathy for holding my coat while that was going on.  Teamwork at it's finest.

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!



  1. your pleated skirt is AMAZING! can i have it ? haha jk but ive seriously been trying to collect them in every color. and i love your chunky heels! great outfit!

  2. this is a GREAT outfit! you are looking fine oh fine today girl!!

    and I know what you mean.. today.. nice. I walked to work wearing NO jacket. Carrying NO umbrella. Went for a lunch meeting. .came out.. POURING RAIN!! so I had a good excuse to buy a new zebra print umbrella but I was still pretty cold walking home!! guess maybe I could have bought a new jacket too.. LOL

  3. This has to be my favorite outfit of yours! You looks so gorgeous in this outfit!

  4. Ah, I love this skirt! I love pleats so much right now!

  5. Love your sweater and nothing beats a nice accordion pleat :)

    Take that wind! ;)

  6. Right there with you - cannot TAKE tights any more.

  7. What a nice skirt! I wish they still made skirts like that, with the fullness and the longer length and all. I'm sure we've all accidentally flashed at some point (no? Well I definitely did - a dress blew over my head outside of a fairly busy Starbucks while walking to the train once), so I definitely see the value there.

  8. LOL "being into flashing"! :D

    What a wonderful skirt! Whatever colour it actually is. :)

    Great details, the pleats, the knit-pattern-thingies (?), the ruffle... And of course, the colours! Lovely!

  9. I love those pleats! And it's such a jolly colour, too. Why do I have no pleated skirts? I should have a pleated skirt. Also seriously loving the Mary Jane wedges.

  10. I'm telling you guys, pleats are the best. I feel like all I've thrifted lately have been pleated skirts, but I can't stop buying them. I think I'm like you, Steffy, I'm determined to have one in every color.

    And Ana, I do not know why don't have any pleated skirts. You need some. ASAP.

  11. This is a beautiful skirt and whether it is orange or red, it looks great with these shoes. I have items in a similar color and they are hard to photograph and get the color right.

  12. That skirt is absolutely amazing!!!


Hooray! Comments! I love comments!! (And cake, but if you just leave a comment, I'll manage the cake on my own).
