Rosy Skirts

floral rose

I'm grandma chic in today's outfit. I loved the print and flow of the skirt so it was a no-brainer to purchase, but now that I'm wearing it, the print and the length is making me feel more old lady-like than I'm ready for. OK, and the fluffy spotted sweater probably doesn't help either, but it was the first thing to catch my eye in the morning, and it was all me who put this entire outfit together and wore it.

Intrinsically I don't think there's anything wrong with this outfit, it's pretty and swishy, but it doesn't necessarily make me feel like I can take on the world. Maybe more like, I can take myself to file those books and then make it out of the library in time to get the early bird special.

Ah well, I guess next time I don this skirt, I'll need to edge up on the rest of the outfit to look a little more age-appropriate and contemporary. Maybe this mixed-material denim jacket that I ordered recently will fit the bill better.

  2. Hey, I happen to adore grandma chic. ;) I am obsessed with that sweater too. Pompoms!! I can see you pulling off this exact outfit and just "toughening it up" with black tights and ankle boots too!

    1. Girl, you've got the height to make most ensembles look smoking! ;o)

  4. LOL - you crack me up. I was agreeing with the "grandma chic" until I saw the full length pictures. The outfit actually looks fun and flirty and sweet.

    1. Thanks, girl - I think the heels saved me a bit. If I wore flats, I think I would have lost!

  5. I love this outfit! Way more chic than grandma, I think! The skirt could go really nicely with a plain top as a casual date outfit too!

    1. I don't know, I think both our grandmas were probably pretty styling in their heydays! ;o)
