Visible Monday #17: Red Hot

Welcome to Visible Monday #17! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.

I recently saw Audi of Fashion for Nerds in a long red pleated skirt, and (of course) she looked fabulous. I had already picked up this midi-length skirt, and Audi’s post inspired me to try it out. It’s by DKNY and very nicely made. It’s a layer of poly chiffon over a layer of something silky, and it has a real leather sewn-in waistband (barely seen here).

I wore a simple boat-neck top with three-quarter sleeves, my very favorite sleeve length for any time of year. This top is by Panache (vintage) and it’s 100% cotton in a very nubby, sheer weave. It’s boxy but I like it. The new favorite Sofft booties are making yet another appearance! I did say I wear my favorite shoes to the nubs.

You can barely see the black leather waistband. It’s so cool.
No, I don’t sleep in these shoes. Almost, though.

Now, let’s see what you’re wearing today! The link-up is open through Wednesday morning.

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple!
