Ooh la Ombre



White tee: Caslon, Skirt: F21, Cardigan: BP, Shoes: Steve Madden, Necklace: Rare Bird, Sunglasses: Jee Vice, Earrings: F21

One thing I was really looking forward to when starting my wardrobe challenge was being able to re-discover and re-purpose items from my wardrobe that have somehow ended up wadded in a deep corner of my closet. This skirt is one of those items. And it's ombre! I'm not sure about you, but a year ago, before pinterest (aka all of you guys) decided that everything looks better when it's "ombre", that word was not even a part of my vocabulary. This skirt was purchased long before I knew what "ombre" meant and I bought it because I thought it was pretty. Oh, and by the way, this skirt is actyally a tube top dress/swimsuit cover-up. But I think it looks better as a skirt (at least on me). So that's how I wear it.

Ooh I love doing that! I have a tube top dress that has a tight top and flowy bottom and I love to wear it as a skirt. Very cute :)
