Today is the maiden voyage of this Jones New York skirt I bought at Sears a couple of weeks ago. It's a simple lined black pencil skirt but with a strip of cobalt blue at the bottom. I've paired it with a black jersey knit, cowl neck, dolman sleeve, zippered shoulder top that has ruching on each hip and absolutely lovely draping. I love the way this top feels on and how it hides any imperfections. Because the cowl is a little low for work, I've popped a cami underneath. For footwear, I decided to wear my blue-purple Play Aerosole booties (an Angie recommendation last fall) for just another shot of colour. For handbag, it made perfect sense to use my yellow & cobalt snakeskin clutch. Jewelry is a simple gold mesh bangle.
I know booties with skirts/dresses on shorties like me isn't to everyone's taste but it's definitely my favourite footwear combination.
What do you think? Colours and proportions work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
