Skirt love for Marfy 2280

Conservatively styled with cardi
I'm loving my latest version of Marfy 2280.
Its looking really cute and swingy.  I was worried that it would look too silly, or not appropriate but I can style it with a striped knit and a cardi for office chic.

I really rely on pockets in my day-to-day, so I am glad that I decided to add them.  The easy, cliche answer would have been brassy zippers with big brassy pulls, but as a middle-aged uber-vanilla accountant I really shouldn't try to pull off biker-chick. 

No really, I'm still too young for 'midlife-crisis' dressing.

I love having the pockets, they are the perfect size and shape.  I can stick my stuff in them and they don't bulge or bag open.  They are much more stylish and convenient than those side seam pockets that I was considering.

I love that fall is finally here.  I broke out the boots, both tall and short.  I found only one pair of whole and wearable dark pantyhose leftover from last spring, but it was enough.
flippy and swingy
OK, by 'finally here' I mean highs in the 70's instead of the 90's, so its cooler.  Its short boots cool, not tall boots cool.  Oh, that cardigan is a silk cotton blend so its hardly cozy.

With blouse 2314 and long boots
I really do love the design of the skirt.  Its full enough to be comfortable to wear.  I can easily climb in and out of the truck.  I can also sit in a chair in an office full of people without feeling exposed, yet it is short and cute enough to not look dowdy.

I also like the look styled with long boots and a fitted blouse.


Now, back to that other blouse...

Maybe by the end of October I will be done with my September wardrobe.
