Blue, Gray, and a Cowl-neck Scarf

I found another way to wear my Ivan Grundahl skirt. I got it on sale a few years ago, but even on sale, designer threads aren’t cheap. But my cost per wear is getting lower. I’m glad I bought this piece. I feel like it’s timeless.

Watch and cuff: Thrifted

Skirt: Ivan Grundahl
Boots: Prada via consignment

Today I paired my skirt with denim, navy, and a pair of thrifted, microfiber Prada boots. In the past, I’ve worn it with fuchsia, green, and even dusty rose.

I have enjoyed my cowl-neck scarf a lot too. I was so happy when Rosalind, owner of Scarf City, made me a custom non-wool scarf. I find wool terribly itchy and I’m on a quest to not wear animal products of any kind. This cotton scarf did the trick!

  1. I agree, designer threads are expensive but can be worth the money. I like a touch of pink of your scarf. What a versatile outfit….you look great!

  2. Love the skirt so much. And the boots! LOVE!

    • Thanks! I couldn’t resist the skirt. And it was 70% off so it could have been worse. Finding Prada booties in a consignment shop in my size was a treat too! I need to wear those more often. They have a totally cute, walkable 2″ heel.

  3. That’s a great skirt, and you wear it very well!

    Popping by as a fellow Visible Monday blogger, do pop by my post and let me know what you think!


  4. Really a great buy, and looks wonderful on you! Even at my age, if it were mine, I’d wear it till everyone was sick of seeing me. Beautiful.

    • Thank you! It’s such a unique style. And true, that means it doesn’t blend in and people will know that ‘I’m wearing it again.” But who cares? It’s fun and I think it’s a style that defies age.
