Good Day Sunshine

Yes! The sun finally decided to come out early today and warm things up to almost normal around here! This calls for bare legs!

I was feeling like something light and airy to go with the gorgeous weather, so I decided on this silk skirt I picked up on clearance in Italy. It was such a good deal I also got one in another pattern seen here.

I actually tried this on with an oxford type button down to start to see if the contrasting materials would work together, but I just wasn’t feeling it so kept it simple with this ruffle knit shirt instead. Added red pumps and gold jewelry¬†and there you go – a classic red, white, and navy summer outfit. I’m hoping I can maybe take this into fall with a long sleeve blouse and boots – maybe a navy tee and¬†grey boots?

What would you wear this skirt with?

Skirt – Sisley (similar), Shirt – Express (similar), Shoes – Corso Como (similar), Purse – Ferragamo (similar), Watch – Marc Jacobs, Other Jewelry – Premier Designs

Ooh love today’s outfit!!!


Great outfit. I think the button down didn’t work as well because the skirt has flow and movement to it. I prefer my button down shirts with straighter skirts (ie pencils and a-lines that are flat) and a soft skirt such as this with a soft top as you did here. A PB blouse may work well. Didn’t you get the BR navy blouse recently? How does that look with the skirt? And tall black boots in winter with a turtleneck or cardigan perhaps?


    Thanks for the suggestions Lisa! I will definitely have to try the BR navy blouse with it, and definitely boots. It is predominantly navy, but does have some black in it, so thinking I could make black tights and black boots work.


Besides how you are already wearing it, I would consider a red or fuschia 3/4 sleeve v-neck cardigan that you wear buttoned – kind of “sexy secretary”. Also, for Fall, I would wear a navy turtleneck (or your new BR blouse) and black knee-high boots.

Where in Italy did you get the skirt? I’m going in 5 weeks and will be on the hunt for something unique that I can add to my wardrobe.


    All good ideas Rebekah, thanks! It is from a store in Florence called Sisley – honestly I didn’t love a lot of other stuff there, but these skirts were just perfect. Also definitely check out Zara – that was my absolute favorite! Where are you going?


YOu look beautiful! Love that outfit!
