OTK Socks and a Cat Skirt

I’m joining the Throwback Thursday (#TBT) trend and posting a few outfit posts from earlier this year. The looks aren’t stale, but my hair is a clue that these aren’t recent pictures.

Somehow, I didn’t get around to posting this outfit, but I think it’s still a fun look and a way to show a warm, rainy day look.

T-shirt: Victoria’s Secret
Skirt: H&M
Socks: Emily the Strange
Pleather shoes: Jelly Pop (from DSW)
Umbrella: Totes (from the drug store)

This kitty cat skirt was popular at H&M last fall. It also came in a cute skater dress and in two variations of the print. I’ve seen women wear white with black cats and black with white.

It’s likely unavailable now though, unlike a Marimekko print my mom recently picked up. She found the same pattern recently (in fabric and in ready-made dresses) that she had almost 50 years ago! That’s staying power!

Even if you can’t get this print, a circle skirt and lug-sole shoe is a fun combination when it’s not cold but you need a practical, stable shoe.

OTK socks and skirt

The shoes are new but the style is reminiscent of the 90s. That’s why I thought the over-the-knee socks worked. It’s a little like The Craft, but in fashion, anything goes!

I’ve joined Fashion Informant for a linkup. See what all the others are wearing!

  1. The shoes are perfect with the socks and skirt. Really like that style in an oxford type shoe.
    I was going to ask about the rain, since I live in Seattle, but then I remembered you mentioned this being a past post. I don’t want it to start just yet!

    • I don’t want it to start yet either! It might be, and I hope my post isn’t the cause 😛

      I liked the clunky shoes and glad you do too. Thanks for commenting! I have a few more TBT posts in my pocket 🙂

  2. That skirt is adorable! LOVE this look and so perfect with the umbrella 🙂

  3. LOVE this fun outfit, the cat print is cute and very appropriate for a Cat Lady! I remember this pink umbrella you bought in NYC last year, it’s a perfect pop of colour for your outfit.

    That’s why I love Marimekko, they keep prints forever; glad I got my fabric, pillowcases and umbrella in the print I love and had in the 60s, PLUS I got it 60% off $53. Thanks for the link ❤
