Infinity possibilities (one skirt two ways and more)

What I wore on a rainy day to work

When I looked out of the window everything was gray, it was raining cats and dogs. The trees moved in the wind. A glimpse on the thermometer also told me it is chilly. Wind and temperatures in the 60s (around 15oC) mean that the air actually will feel much colder. Thus, I decided to dress a little warmer and go for some bold color with the indoor and “outerwear outfit.” I don’t know about you, but when I have a new item I have to test the “infinity” new outfit options. Thus, I wore my new skirt again. You can find the review of this customized skirt at the link.

This time, I wore a white cotton polka dot cardigan as a blouse with my new skirt that has these nice bold stripes. I picked up the yellow green of the skirt with the peridote necklace for some color coordination. I added nude shoes to elongate the legs and it also picks up the color of the skirt.

Switch shoes at the office on rainy days

As cork plateau sandals are not a good idea in rainy weather when walking thru puddles I packed the sandals into my office bag and wore my Hunter rain boots on the commute to work. The yellow men’s HH raincoat and the sunflower yellow pliage added some summer color to the gray summer day.

Sunny day outfit

For a sunny day, I recycled the skirt and paired it with a leather top and a silk scarf. Both the top and scarf pick up the colors of the skirt. The secret to pack a small bag for a business trip or weekend with many outfits is to color coordinate them. Thus, if an item you like to pack cannot contribute to at least three outfits don’t put it into your weekender for your three day trip.

I am astonished about all the different possibilities to style this custom made skirt.
