Tried and True

tiers reclose-up

Skirt? thrifted
Blouse? Ralph Lauren, thrifted
Boots? Cole Haan, thrifted
Socks? Primark
Necklace? h&m, old!
Rings? found and thrifted
Earrings? won from Briannelee

This is the autumn version of one of my favourite outfits (worn here). When I thrifted this skirt I found it in black and white and I bought both. I always pass over this skirt (well, both) in my closet, they have 'meh' hanger appeal but then when I take a moment to try one on, I realize again how freaking fabulous they are.

I prefer this skirt and skirt combo with a brown belt but I didn't want to be all 'Brown Leather Overkill 2009'. I had to choose between the belt and the crazy necklace and because it's autumn and the necklace is so pretty, the necklace won. Whatever, it all came together and paired with the perfect fall day, it worked out very nicely.

Love the pictures with those gorgeous leaves. I think it got too cold in Chicago too fast, and now all the leaves are just dying and falling off instead of changing colors properly. Dammit. Anyway, that necklace is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. Love the outfit!

I had seen that necklace in your jewellery-drawer shots a while back. It's fantastic! Would it also somehow work as a belt? Love the shirt and gorgeous picturesque setting.
