My comment about not owning a single skirtwas not entirely accurate . I bought this matte “ satin “ skirt at our version of Target the other day on a whim - because about every 5 years or so I get motivated to see if I can fit into a skirt . I refuse to spend any money on something like this until I’m sure I can wear it . I hadn’t even tried it on until this morning ….Angie’s blog post made me think I might try it for work with the cashmere sweater I was already wearing ( instead of the pants I had planned ) . I actually don’t mind it , and I also don’t mind these new boots with it . They have a high enough shaft that they sit under the skirt hem nicely . Of course I forgot all about static electricity from my coat lining and by the time I arrived at work the skirt was plastered to my legs . Oops .

Anyhow , for $29 , I think I can find some occasions to wear this piece .

If I were going somewhere other than to work , I’d wear more/ different jewellery , but I’m already pushing the envelope with the skirt so I’m going pretty minimal here .

Suggestions for styling welcome !
