For my first outfit of the year, I thought I'd continue exploring something I wore last year -- the ignoble skirt-suit. Normally worn by middle-aged women, the skirt-suit has (to me, at least) an appealing femininity. Plus, it's halfway toward an outfit by itself since the skirt and top match.
I found a cute one at a thrift-store in pretty yellow. I'm belting it for structure and using sparkly gold fishnets to add shine to my legs. What do you think?
Best of all, the outfit showcases a Christmas gift from my dear friend Jessica. Her blog is one of the best around; go check it out. Jessica saw how much I enjoyed my mermaid post last year so she got me a pretty mermaid necklace. I love it!
