Black and Grey: My outfit matches the Weather

And another grey and rainy overcast day... this is just the beginning, however- we don't have it as bad as they do in Vancouver.  I got this skirt when I bought the purple one and it fit like a glove. This is an old vintage skirt and you know- whenever I try on those skirts designed for ladies in the 50's and 60's they fit perfectly.  I almost don't even need to try them on, they just FIT.  Thats what curves give you... 50's skirts that fit like a glove.  Anyway. I wasn't sure how to wear this skirt and even did a search through all my blogger favorites for ideas on how to wear a black skirt so its not just the plain old uniform and I had a hard time finding ideas.  I then referred to Who do you want to be today by Trinny and Susannah) and then started out with Androgynous Look... it then morphed into this outfit. Call it what you want. Not sure of the style, but HEY< I felt good all day in it!

I typically get dressed around the kind of day I am going to have.  Will I be walking to alot of meetings? Will I be riding my bike (and have my helmet screw up my hair)?, How professional do I need to look for this meeting, etc.  The first thing that starts my outfit idea is what I will wear on my FEET.  I then plan around that.

QUESTION: How to you plan your daily outfits?


  1. I wish I could tell you how I plan my daily is so I am feeling at a particular moment and often with what the events of the day holds. Some days I need to look more professional than other days. I like this look a lot and it is not dreary to me at all. Your boots and the skirt are great! Have a great weekend.

  2. sometimes i decide based on whether i want to wear heels or flats, since some pieces will only work with one or the other. Somedays my outfits start out in one place but endup somewhere completely different.

  3. The skirt is a beautiful fit and the long lines of the top are perfect with it. And the gray boots. that last photo is just gorgeous.
