WIW 12/14: Gap ink sweater and old maternity skirt

Debut of the ink blue Gap sweater. I'm sorry for the poor pic quality--was trying out pics on my iPhone but for some reason the color is off. The sweater looks purplish in the pics but is more of a navy blue. The skirt is a little darker blue IRL and does match the sweater. I feel like this outfit looks better IRL than in the pics, but I could be wrong.

What do you think of the skirt? It's a Japanese Weekend maternity skirt from about six years ago. I'm dreading getting the "D" word, because of the ruffled hem and I know it looks kind of like my 90's printed skirts that got the thumbs down from you all. It is reversible (black on the inside), and stretch waisted. I wanted to wear this sweater with my Anthro Liquid Acres pencil skirt, but I'm getting to big for my old pencil skirts--they're turning into minis by the time I hike them over my belly! I tried to update the skirt with current sweater and polka dot tights and ankle boots...is this acceptable or too dated?

Thanks for your comments!

    Love the print on the skirt! I think you look totally fab and season appropriate. Very often it is a certain 'look' that becomes dated. Wearing this with the exact same top/shoes combo that you did 6 years ago would probably date you. I don't think this does. Lovely sweater:-)

    I love this on you, Sweater Twin, and your sweater and boots take it into the new millennium! So pretty!

    Sweater looks great on you and agree the overall impression of the outfit is not at all dated.
