Couldn't Wait

I’ve worn a dress over jeans, but never a skirt. This morning, I altered* this skirt and eagerly tried it on over my jeans. I was so enamored with the result, that I wore it for the rest of the day.

Cardigan, Mossimo (thrifted). Tee, Forever 21. Skirt, Rafaella (thrifted). Jeans, Dollhouse (overdyed with black dye but it has really faded). Boots, Playhouse.

*My “alterations” consisted of returning the skirt to its original closure points. The previous owner had removed the buttons and added snaps so that the skirt would fit a larger wearer. The snaps were effective, but the reduced wrapping ruined the lines of the skirt.

Love checking your blog for ideas! I really like this look - I've been rocking jeans unders skirts and dresses for years, though in my small town people think it a bit odd. Ha, well I do it anyway! Anywho - think you look fabulous & keep up the good work!

Love the way it looks!! Although, that kilt is the exact same tartan pattern as my old high-school uniform. I'm pretty sure that may have belonged to one of my former classmates who couldn't wait to get rid of it after graduation! ;)

How fun! I've never been able to figure out the magical formula to wearing jeans under dresses and skirts, but this definite works.

A skirt-jean combo! Wow! It looks good. You are so brave!
I can not try this combination even in privacy of my closet. I think it is one of my mental hang ups! But here you are, wearing it and it looks good!
No kitten today?

That is a super cute skirt!!

I've been watching your blog for a while, and was wondering if you would be willing to give me some newbie tips :o)

I have just recently started doing outfits posts on my blog in the hopes of developing a more interesting style.

That looks so good on you. I've always felt too bulky when I've tried that. In general, I don't feel too good in a lot of layers :-(
