The Merino Pencil Skirt in heather saddle caught my eye when I first saw it, and after asking for the measurements from customer service, I decided to go with a size S. This is the equivalent to size 4, I was told. I loved the thicker knit of this skirt, perfect for fall and winter! The heather saddle colour is the perfect match to the Stripe Saturday Sweater I blogged about yesterday. I decided that was too matchy-matchy for this skirt, even though I liked the wide stripes on the sweater.
I first chose to try it on with the Tippi Sweater in black (size S) and a belt. I wish they had one in the tortoise pattern of the Martina Wedges, but this red one had to do.
The second option I had in mind was the Stretch Perfect Shirt In Wide Stripe (size S). The label code says navy, but the stripes look almost black to me, at least in artificial lighting. The SA couldn't find a women's wider black belt in the store for me, so she brought a men's size 32 that I am cinching at the back. I was trying to envision what it would look like if I wore my Distressed Denim Belt with it.
For now, I decided to go for the second look and got the shirt. I've always wanted a shirt with vertical stripes.
Do you have the merino pencil skirt? How did you style it? Please share.
I have a lot more photos but I need time to sort through them, hopefully this week.
Hope your week has started well.
