What I like best about Kia's outfit here is the bright green skirt. If sassy skirt could talk it would say, "yo spring, how you doin'?!" and then it would wink. The knee length is very work appropriate, the color, a very welcome post-winter sight, and the corduroy fabric is perfect for the still cool temperatures. Kia's pairing of the simple light brown cardigan with the ruffled cream top keeps her toasty while adding pop. And the slight silver band in the camel colored flats has the same effect. I believe she told me they were from Aldo. Nicely played, Kia, nicely played.
Not wanting to waste freshly shaved legs, I too opted for a skirt. I had only worn this cotton/wool plaid skirt a couple of times this winter, so I decided to give it some time in the sun before it goes away for the season. As I had popped a button off the bottom front of the skirt last year, and so had to move the rest of buttons around for comfort this year, I wanted to put out a reminder that sometimes even nice clothes need a little alteration for the individual wearer. The skirt and top are both from the SALE section of the Anthropologie in Rittenhouse Square. For warmth and a nod to my country roots, I opted for the Frye Carson Boots.
