Turn Around

This is a break from tights and toes to bring you stiff skirts and galoshes. It is my go-to combination for wet days.

Jacket, Wilson’s. Hooded sweater, Mossimo. Skirt, Chaus Sport (thrifted). Boots, TJ Maxx. Bag (below), Payless.


Yes, this outfit is boring from the front…

…but so much fun in the back.

I turn to this combination in wet weather because:
1) Galoshes are practical in the rain and puddles
2) A skirt eliminates the need to tuck pants into the boots
3) A tough material (like denim or corduroy) resists the gusts of wind that often accompany inclement weather.

More stiff skirts and galoshes:

I'm in love with your jacket! This whole outfit is cute but practical-gotta love that!

Every time I see that bag I wish I had gotten it when I saw it there too!

I love rainboots with skirts! The only thing I'm not in love with is your socks. I love that they're peeking out, but I wish they were a different color. I am not sure what color, just something...different. The skirt is adorable.

Fab! I do this look with motorcycle boots (which are also waterproof) as one of my favourite "wander around town" looks.

This is a great casual look for you. So would this be the fashion equivalent of the mullet? Business in the front, party in the back? :-P Ha!

I love the outfit from the front, but the skirt is not one of my faves. I'm always afraid of how ruffles are going to make my butt look. I agree about the socks, too. I'd expect a little more whimsy out of you, missy. LOL

I'm too much of a wimp to expose my legs to rain, but you are much more badassery than I am in many ways. I love this outfit!

Love it!!!!! I'm stealing this look!

So cute!

Do you wear the galoshes all day?

Kasmira said...

I didn't wear this outfit until after work, but I did wear the galoshes all evening.

I'm waiting on a pair of galoshes to be delivered myself! For less windy, inclement days, I love the idea of a huge sweater, tiny swishy skirt and boots. Your skirt is adorable with all those ruffles, though!

I do the same as much as I can (I don't own many stiff skirts)
