WIW: Printed A -Line skirt and denim jacket

Last time I wore this skirt, I paired it with a white tee and my faded denim jacket. Today I've paired it with a black tank and my darker wash denim jacket. I've added my snakeskin belt to show my waist (I see in the pictures it's a bit wonky - will fix that before I go to work). I'm wearing my two tone neutral oxford sandals and my camel leather handbag to keep the skirt as the star. Have added a simply navy faux stone bracelet for my only accessory.

I'm liking this combination - what do you think? Proportions and colours ok? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Skirt: Cleo Petites (thrifted)
Tank: Cleo Petites
Denim jacket: Brody Jeans (thrifted)
Sandals: Aerosoles
Handbag: Mondani New York (thrifted)
Bracelet: thrifted

    Tnis is a beautiful, bright and fresh combo Shannon. This is a lovely skirt and I particularly like the addition of the belt. It's contrasts but still co-ordinates with the neutral/beige color of the skirt. You look lovely:)

    I think it all looks very pretty together, but the denim jacket of course makes it perfectly casual. Great accessories to really make the look modern.

    Nice! The black adds a bit of sophistication, yet it still looks fresh and summery. The skirt is a very flattering shape for you, and I love the colors!

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    I like it. The blue of the denim brings out the blue in the skirt just right and the light accessories keep it summery.

    Another winning combination! I will admit to checking your WIW's each day to get great ideas for work wear. Keep em coming! :)

    Love this Shannon! The skirt looks great on you and I adore both the shoes and the belt with this. You look so great!!

  • Jem replied 7 years ago

    Ooh, pretty! I love this combination! I wasn't expecting to like the black tank/dk jacket combo, but it's gorgeous!

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Love it, Shannon! I really enjoy the colors of the skirt - it's a floral, but it can also be moody. You have the skirt-denim jacket combo nailed!

  • MNsara replied 7 years ago

    Everything works together SO nicely!! The black top with the skirt, the belt/bag/sandals, the touch of denim to keep it from being too 'ladies who lunch'!!

    You look great!!

    Isn't it fab when your closet is full of the RIGHT stuff ;-)

    Great look, the skirt is played up so nicely with the accessories you have thoughtfully chosen.

  • JR replied 7 years ago

    This is one of the best outfits I've seen on you, Shannon. You look wonderful.

    I love, love the print of that skirt. And you've balanced everything out so nicely.

  • Echo replied 7 years ago

    Love this. This is a very flattering look on you, with the volume of the skirt and the sleek tank on top. And the wash and fit of your denim jacket is perfect.

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    This is one of your best!

    I wasn't sure about that style of shoes at first, but they have really grown on me. I think they're a perfect finishing touch to your outfit!

  • citygirldc replied 7 years ago

    Looks lovely, Shannon. This skirt is worth being a star!

  • Jenava replied 7 years ago

    I am digging this, esp. the belt/shoe/skirt combo!

  • Jonesy replied 7 years ago

    Awesome! The skirt is such a beautiful cut and print, and the light-colored accessories work so well. That cropped denim jacket is such a workhorse--it's just perfect.
