I am now a proud skirt twin to Tall S. Am I crazy? Can a shorter person carry off the bold stripe? I don't know, but I had to have it anyway.

I have loved my cobalt and navy Vince Camuto skirts so much this year that buying another in a pattern seemed almost essential, especially at the sale price. It was a tough contest between this one and the houndstooth, which I also ordered, but in the end, the rugby stripe won out.

And then, after I bought it, I had a moment of panic that I might not be able to style it!

Today I had a chance to play in the closet with it. Thank goodness, I do have a few ways to wear it. Here were a few of my most obvious and easy pairings.

Notes: the skirt is shorter this year than last. I don't think I need to alter it. (I needed to shorten last year's version.)

Also, for me, this is pretty much a summer only item, which is why I have shown it in summer combinations.

#1: with asymmetrical neckline tunic. A lower neckline than I typically wear, but I hope it is okay.

#2: with peplum top.

#3: with peplum and kimono to dress it up

#4/5: with ruched turtleneck and denim jacket to dress it down

#6/7: with Gap mesh sleeve sweater and denim jacket.

I have a couple of other options as well, although so far, not too many of my coloured tops were working with it. I'll continue to experiment.

Hope you agree it's a winner for me. I do love wearing these easy skirts.

Hmmm. For someone who swore off black, I seem to have a lot of it, don't I? Oh well. I guess it just wants to follow me home.
