Skater Skirt and flats

I started putting this outfit together, scarf-first. I wanted to wear this patterned scarf. So I grabbed some solids and let the scarf take the spotlight.

gray and olive

Cardigan: Swapped
Tank: Target
Scarf: Boutique in Portland
Skirt: Swapped
Tights: Target
Shoes: Beyond Skin

Gray and olive aren’t colors I usually mix together, but I really like they way it looks. I usually stick with warmer tones (khaki, tan, brown) when I wear olive. But the grey is fresh–plus, the colors in the scarf pulls it all together.

tights and flats

My Beyond Skin bowtie flats worked well with the short, flirty style of the skirt. These shoes were my “reward” for my contribution to a Kickstarter. They fit perfectly and go with practically everything. Score! Beyond Skin is a UK-based ethical shoe company. They’re animal-free (no leather) and work closely with factories in Spain to make sure people aren’t exploited in the making of these shoes either.

    Love the colour of the tights which is in the scarf as well.

    This outfit is so simple yet so perfect. Without the scarf and tights, dull. With the scarf and tights, fabulous! It’s made me think about ways to do the same. Kx

  3. Great idea to start with this multicoloured scarf and pick up the colours in your outfit. I bought the same tights at Target before they closed. The shoes are beautiful and I love that they are ethical.

    I agree with Karen that without the scarf and tights, this outfit would be boring. I must try that with one of my neutral outfits. ❤

  4. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, you look wonderful in this adorable skirt and scarf!

  5. Love this entire combination. Such different colours that you’ve made work together. Love that scarf. 🙂

    You look really polished and pretty … I’m loving the emphasis on real-honest-to-pete-neutrals these last seasons. As you show, they can be the perfect springboard for color dressing in a really fresh way! And I’ve been fretting over third-piece dressing … here’s a great example (so hard in hot weather!)

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
