Pretty, patterned pencil skirt:

This was an outfit day low on thrift goods and very basic effort. It’s interesting how blogging has made me redefine the way I get dressed. Rather than just throwing on a top, a bottom and a pair of shoes; I look the outfit over, layer, reassess, remove and repeat. And I do this again and again until I’ve decided an outfit is interesting and blog worthy.

I think the most interest in this outfit is the print of the skirt:

I love that it reads as a subtle animal print.

I did mange a cute necklace.
not much of a smile

But, the posed pictures are a bit of a sham because I didn't wear those pretty heels (remember it's still cold and wintry here)! I instead wore my trusty Frye durango's. Sans tights of course and was quite warm and comfortable.

  1. Christine, thanks for swinging by my blog yesterday and commenting! I've just recently gotten into thrifting, and I love seeing other people's finds. That skirt is so pretty - I love the polka dots and they really unique print pattern. And I empathize with you on agonizing over blog outfits ... I really have to keep my attitude in check and remind myself that blogging is just for fun for me, otherwise feeling like I have to come up with something fabulous every day can be really stressful. You look great!

  2. The pattern on that skirt is so pretty!

  3. I love pencil skirt. This look is great on you.
