Closet Ultimatum #5 - Black and White Skirt





Another day, another questionable skirt!  Like the purple skirt, I'm just wary of the length on this skirt since it's of the flowy variety.  When I am standing still, it's fine; but when I am walking, I feel like I am one wind gust away from pulling a Marilyn Monroe.  In the past, I've worn this skirt mostly with brightly colored tops, but I decided to keep it simple today with the black and white.  I think the only other time this skirt has appeared on the blog is one of my least favorite outfits ever.  It was a nice day in March, and I was so excited to start dressing in my summer clothes.  I didn't realize that my skirt and top were washing out my already terrifyingly pale legs.  It was also a pretty bad hair day!

Verdict:  I am on the fence about this skirt.  Maybe I will give it another go before I make my final decision.  Maybe try it with tights in the winter?  What do you think? 

Top: Gap
Skirt: Loft
Belt: Francesca's
Shoes: Seychelles

  2. I like the skirt! The black and white are great, it's a classic color combo. But you're right, the skirt might look really cute with tights!

    1. Yeah, I think I will try it with tights and boots this fall before I decide whether to sell it.

  3. I love the skirt! Try wearing it with either a red top or just red shoes. Tights may work too. I say you keep it.

  4. I love this outfit! I totally understand the skirt problem, though. I went through my skirt collection last weekend and had an issue with almost every single one!

  6. love the belt. I've totally been obsessed with wide belts. I like the length of the skirt but I'm not sure about it with the top like like the other ideas maybe with red or tights.
