J. Crew Striped Skirt

I have been waiting forever to wear this skirt! I bought it three and half weeks ago - but it was too big. I got it tailored, and now it fits perfect.

Looking at these photos, you would think that it was mid-October, not the middle of August!

Why I'm A•Mused: I love how the colors of my hat and blazer play together. Whenever I think of fall, it is these hues that come to mind, but I hadn't ever thought of pairing them together - so I love how this turned out. Also, I love how this scarf literally goes with everything in my closet. When I first bought it I wondered how many things I would be able to pair it with; and now I know...everything!

Also - I'm selling my Dooney & Bourke bag! Send me an e-mail if you're interested!

  1. Wow, how gorgeous! I love the skirt and have a similar dress. You are inspiring me to shorten it a bit and finally wear it!

  5. The weather has been so weird. Especially since I leave my house in the morning, it's sunny up on the mountain, then drive down and it's foggy and misty and cold...weird August weather!

  6. But also, adorable outfit. I've always wanted a skirt like that...and you know I always admire your affinity for hats. I need to get to work to find a hat to love.

    Yes, I adopted DISQUS only because you did. I copied you. You
    said that it was the future. I didn’t want to be left behind. I have noticed
    that more blogs and websites are taking to it, but I still remain unsure of the
    benefits. My already haemorrhaging visitor numbers has depleted further, though
    that may be because I continue to write lengthy essays that seem
    to go on and on and on…



    Your account of mothers taking great pride in fitting into
    their teenage daughters’ jeans made me wonder if this may be an American thing
    (youthful nation that prizes youthfulness as a commodity), but it’s not really.
    The phenomena of mutton dressed as lamb remains endemically British, too, and
    one fears it will get worse. As long as we’re essentially a consumer-driven economy
    that relies on its citizens feeling inadequate for not possessing the ‘right’
    products and lifestyles then Britain will continue to spend beyond its means
    and suffer a volatile economic backdrop. The British are some of the most
    depressed people in Europe and methinks it’s due to the fact our vales remain
    largely valueless.



    Also, if this generation has a specific sound then it’s a
    terrible one. It consists of former Disney princesses singing auto-tuned pop
    confections that wouldn’t be out of place on MTV Europe
    circa 1992. It’s the kind of music aging mothers that wear their daughters’
    jeans probably dance to.

  12. Gosh Amber, sorry to hear about your collision with a
    vehicle. I hope you’re okay. You must be seriously shook up. Not to be
    flippant, but you fashionistas are made of sterner stuff. I know this because I
    have seen the Devil Wears Prada and there is a scene that almost echoes what
    you endured yesterday, and that character comes out of it a stronger and more
    spectacular individual. Therefore, I assure you that you’ll be just fine. All
    you have to do is take things easy and recuperate as much as possible. It’s all
    good from here on.



    To keep you stressed mind diverted, I shall try and keep you
    occupied with sundry tasks you can do in this current downtime. I am no

    Keep well and think good thoughts. That’s the only way to
    recover at speed. Speak soon.

  15. Hi Jasmine, I'm glad that you like the hat! It's actually from my shop, which can be found here : https://www.etsy.com/listing/156411752/1970s-vintage-wool-felt-floppy-hat?ref=shop_home_feat


    I lucked out and found two (and decided to keep one for myself)! I hope that helps!

  16. Rest assured, your comments are getting through! DISQUS sometimes "hides" comments, but doesn't delete them. It stores them in my "to be reviewed" folder until I manually approve them.

  17. Aaaand it looks like we're right back to summer! Fall is officially gone until early November.
