Every year, I think to myself, “I don’t need any more Christmas print skirts.” And every year, I come across another amazing Christmas print skirt to add to my wardrobe. Only this year, it wasn’t just a skirt, it was a skirt with a matching cardigan! The lovely wintry print on the skirt may be called “Christmas Town,” but I can see myself wearing it all winter, especially since the background of the skirt is a fairly neutral navy. And the embroidery on the cardigan isn’t specifically Christmas-y, either, although the red color certainly makes you think Christmas!
I accessorized with a basset hound brooch from Erstwilder, which fits right in with the embroidery on the cardigan, a bow belt which makes me think of Christmas presents, and a green doctor’s bag-style handbag from Collectif, plus a fun Christmas lights scarf (that looks more pink in pictures than it does in person).
This outfit, including the green and white striped top, is from Unique Vintage, although it’s not their store brand. The label says Royal Monk, and I think that’s somehow related to Banned Retro, which is a brand that has had Christmas prints in the past that I’ve regretted not adding to my wardrobe.
I love this festive look!
Have you added any new festive fashion to your wardrobe?
I know it’s still early in August, and we’ve got plenty of days in the 90s ahead of us, but I’m already thinking about fall. And what is a more classic combination for fall than a cardigan and skirt?
I love this floral swing skirt from Unique Vintage. Its color palette is just different enough to be really interesting. The cool grey background is lovely, and the flowers themselves are in enough colors to offer lots of options for coordinating.
I paired the skirt with a Yemak cropped cardigan over a Pinup Girl Clothing peasant top in complementary shades of blue:
I decided to go with green and brown accessories this time, with a Splendette Duchess bangles stack as well as my HOMES bracelets, and the ever-adorable Erstwilder Slothertons.
When you add in a pair of boots, it’s the perfect look for fall!
A few months ago, I started planning my Easter outfit. I had an idea, figured out the accessories I would wear with it, and then completely changed my mind. Fortunately, Pinup Girl Clothing had a sale, which allowed me to buy both this beautiful coral floral print Bella skirt and the matching Yemak cropped cardigan. Unfortunately, in the end I guess it didn’t really matter, because it’s not like I have anywhere to wear it at the moment. I did still style it and take pictures, and it’s just as beautiful a look as I knew it would be!
I accessorized with the same fascinator I wore last year, my favorite “pearl” necklace, the flower brooch I wear every Easter, gloves, a Collectif belt, and a Splendette Duchess Bangles stack and matching earrings from their new pastels collection:
If you’re curious about the top, it’s actually the top half of my Mary Blair boats print Audrey dress…yes, I just threw the skirt on over the top of it!
So this isn’t the Easter I really wanted, but this situation is temporary (I hope!), and I’m looking forward to eventually wearing this out in public!
