I like this new/old skirt, thrifted from Goodwill. It’s lightweight, the perfect length, and has cool details like a drawstring waist and an under-skirt that peeks out at the hem. It’s washable and the price was right, about $4. I do not love this whole look though because I think the top is too bland, too neutral, for the skirt.

Yes, it “matches”, but it doesn’t sing. I liked it better in my mind the night before! Even the addition of an arm party didn’t make it interesting enough. Next time I will try a cool black blouse, with details, like this:

Or a simple black tee, with a fun top layer (vest or cardi):

Or . . . a color? I could try my new best friend yellow or go crazy with coral, and tie it together with some special jewelry.

The skirt has a lot of potential, and it will have a spot in my closet for fall. I’m sure to love it with tights and flat boots.
