Happy New Year! And welcome to Visible Monday #27! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
I am starting off the year with a faithful favorite: an animal print. This time it’s in skirt form, and no actual animals were harmed in its making. Many polyesters and rayons may have met their ends, however. I bought this skirt at Housing Works thrift store in NYC, for under $10. It’s from H & M, in a nice, sturdy material and feels very cozy.
The top is a vintage 80’s find from a local thrift. I like the open neckline and three-quarter sleeves. My preference lately has been for clothing that doesn’t fit too closely to the body, and this top is perfection. (It really isn’t very sheer; I got caught in the Alexandra Kerry photo-flash effect!)
Of course, tights and boots finish the look, it being January and all. And, because I obsess on recent purchases, I am wearing my bangle bracelet yet again. I felt great at work in this outfit, covered enough but with a bit of personality showing through.

I can’t wait to see what you are wearing today!
