I've kind of been tossing around the idea of an animal print skirt for fall but didn't want anything that was too dark (i.e. black background). When picking up socks and underwear for hubby at Sears yesterday, this little skirt caught my eye. It's a lovely stretch cotton and is fully lined. It will be a great transitional piece for the season and I'm thinking could possibly be worn in winter with black or nude micro fishnets and my knee high Blondo boots.

I've paired the skirt with an unexpected pop of pink - not a colour I normally wear but I like the combination with the animal print. It has a lady-like 1960's vibe to it, don't you think? The sweater has bracelet length sleeves with a flat bow on each wrist. I tried my rose gold/black watch but found a watch competed with the length of the sleeve.

I've popped on my newly thrifted dark green suede pumps and added my Fossil handbag for yet another unexpected colour. Not entirely sure the handbag works though. I'm also wearing a copper and rose gold necklace. I haven't been feeling love for my necklaces lately but because I couldn't wear my watch, I felt the outfit needed a wee something.

What do you think? Does this all work together or is it a bit of a hot mess? I also have this sweater in black which looks great with the skirt. As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
