ootd: skirting the issue

I really look forward to Wednesday outfit posts. I love having such a wonderful source of outfit inspiration when I link up with Lindsey for What I Wore Wednesday.  

I've got a li'l outfit today for y'all. Ready? Take a deep breath.

Let's go!


I found this blog, My Dressy Ways, a few weeks ago and really love her style. It's very similar to mine and she wears a lot of pieces that I own...so, yes, I will work off of someone ELSE'S inspiration. HA! You'll notice 2 different skirts in these pics. I originally put on the shorter one, but re-thought it after I saw the first couple of shots. I generally don't like to show my knees. They look like weird half-smiley faces. So, then I switched it to the longer skirt. Anywho, this classic color combo of fuschia and khaki is perfect for spring and summer.

Top: Old Navy
Long Skirt (left): Old Navy
Shorter Skirt (right): Target
Wedges: Urban Originals

I think when I actually wear this outfit, I'll probably add a long pendant necklace like Ying did in the original post.

Thoughts on fushcia and khaki? I think that a strong color like fuschia is grounded with a neutral like khaki...you know, for all y'all color-phobes.

  1. Your knees look like everyone else's knees.
    I like both skirts for different occasions. The shorter one for Girl's Night Out or a date, the longer one for work or church. Isn't it amazing how a few inches of fabric can change an outfit?
    I actually have, and have worn, a very similar outfit. My pieces are more casual in style but my lifestyle is more casual.

    1. I agree on having the different skirts for different occasions but the other skirt is like a jersey, t-shirt material. (the longer one) I don't know how "church appropriate" it is.

    2. Heh, I wore a knit skirt to church this past Sunday :)
      I guess it depends on the church and your role at the church.

  2. I also don't believe in showing my knees.

  3. I wore something similar just the other day! I'm generally a color-phobe, but with all these pretty spring colors coming out, I've been inspired... at least to wear with neutrals! Love the combo! I think the slightly longer one is more work appropriate as well.

    2. Lol you're so sweet. I would love to link to this post from my blog next week, would you be ok with that?

      I thought that top was polka dot but wasn't sure. Gosh, how'd I miss that top? Light tan polka dots on fuchsia? Amazing!

  7. I love the fact that you and I are close to the same size. I have loved everything you have posted since the day I started following your blog. And I have taken some inspiration from you too.. No more wearing just black and brown for me. Cause I have no problem working off someone else's inspiration either!!

    1. Becky, that's so awesome to hear! I must say I'm excited to hear we are about the same size. Do you have a blog?

      I love following curvy lady blogs but find that a lot of them are not the same body type or size that I am so it's hard to get an idea of outfit fits, you know? Glad that I can at least be that to someone else!

      By the way, do I know you in real life?

  8. It is amazing how such a small thing as a couple inches on a skirt can make a big difference. I would love it if you linked this post up to my fashion link party.
