OOTD: Plaid and stars

There are a million ways I want to style this Comfort by Margaret M faux leather skirt that I splurged on from my second Fix (disclosure: link is a referral link, and if you sign up, I'm credited $25). One idea I like is wearing it over dresses that I think are too short for fall. This time, I chose to wear it with my well-loved plaid Eddie Bauer shirt I got at an outlet, novelty star tights over Target fleece-lined tights and my Tieks. Under the shirt, I wore my American Apparel velvet crop top. Why a crop top? To minimize the bulk under the skirt, since I already have a tucked-in shirt and two pairs of tights (warmth over style, but not by too much!).

I think I got these tights at a Halloween store years ago and never wore them. It's amazing what you can discover when you actually look through your underwear drawer.

I wore my J. Crew hard candy necklace to echo the pink of the ballet flats.

This outfit really works for me because I love to mix patterns and textures. The silhouette is sophisticated and work-appropriate, but it's fun and colorful and me.

On my lips, I'm wearing MAC liner in Brick under Urban Decay Revolution gloss in Assassin.
