This is a followup to my prior Tory Burch K/R thread:
I decided to keep the Radnor rust and cobalt A-line midi skirt and the Erin navy and white shirtdress. The skirt is so cool with the shimmery cobalt and rust in a honeycomb pattern. It almost looks like fish scales. Everything else got sent back today including the cardigans and Hull skirt (sorry CocoLion!). I couldn't wait to wear the skirt! At first I thought it looked too frumpy in the A line silhouette and that I would only keep it if I had it altered to be a pencil shape. But the A line look is growing on me, so now I'm not sure. I wore it today, and I realized that it might be tough to narrow it, because then it might be too tight to hop up into the car easily or move around. I don't have many A line skirts, so it would fill a relative wardrobe hole (not that I'm lacking for skirts, haha). What do you guys think, leave as is or try to get it narrowed into a pencil shape?
I paired it with a super old INC rust mock turtleneck that I've had for almost 20 years so it's a little faded and the neck seam is developing a tiny hole, but it is such a perfect color for me that I'm still hanging onto it as long as I can. And over that I wore my Halogen black plaid wool zippered peacoat that kind of looks like a moto jacket. I like the A line better here (as opposed to with the cardigans I posted it with in the last thread) because of the nipped in waist from the jacket. And then I wore grey ribbed tights and my favorite Chie Mihara rust sandals. I did a lot of walking/shopping (mainly returning stuff) and my feet were still pretty comfy for wearing 3.5 inch heels...the Chie's are amazingly comfortable heels! And I really like wearing this skirt too!
