Top: ?
Cardigan: Sundance Catalog
Skirt: Stewart + Brown
Boots: La Canadienne

This is a different Stewart + Brown skirt from yesterday's: it's reversible. When I first got it, I thought, eh, it's reversible, but then it becomes a plain black skirt.

But that can be a good thing. If you feel your outfit is too busy, you need only turn the skirt inside out. The "loom" pattern side didn't do much for the shirt, so that is what I did today.

The shirt now, is at least fifteen years old, probably closer to twenty. It was sitting in the back of the closet when I was taking care of my kids and working as a contractor.

ootd detail

It's nice, particularly now that we have so much mass-produced fashion, which tends toward solid colors over prints. Another factor imo is the preponderance of apparel made in China. Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, English and U.S. textiles tend to be far more sophisticated.
