For those of us that live in the semi-tropics "End of Summer Sales" are a gift. Even if you do not live in extended summer areas, winter is months away. There are still outdoor cafes, evening walks along the shore, and restaurants to visit. The outfits above pop and are simple, yet dressy.
This week Talbots (my new favorite feminine hangout), had final summer markdown and both of the above skirts were only $20.00 each. Selection was still good and I was able to get both in my size.
|Talbots - A-Line Skirt|
The second "CLASSIC COTTON A-LINE SKIRT - FLORAL" I also purchase in petite and the 19" length, although short, is perfect. Talbots' list it as a-line although it is certainly not full and fits almost as a pencil skirt. I tried on several sizes in the store and found the just right "Goldilocks" fit.
The tops shown are just pain vanilla, v-neck knits. Both are part of Amazon's "Lock and Love" collection. From the photo they look like they would drape beautifully. The price of these $9.95 - $16.95 and are in dizzying array of colors. Sizing options run from X-Small to 5X Large.
I have plenty of tops so these are shown as suggestions. Mix and match with what you already have. Also anything in "True Blue" will be perfect with the pleated skirt.
Keep in mind that as evenings get a little cooler a blue/red sweater would work beautifully as well; jacket optional.
