Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhhhhh ~ caught in a plaid romance. Sorry about that. I got a little too excited about today’s outfit idea. You might recognize this preppy midi skirt from my 1950s sockhop sweetie Halloween costume, but pairing it with a lady-like grey blazer gives it a totally fresh spin. As you might have noticed, I’m really feelin’ the polished grown-up look for fall (especially since I’m officially old now), but I’m doubly bubbly about this outfit because its one of the ones I put together for Naya’s Renew Your Soles Style Challenge where they asked green style bloggers like yours truly to donate 5 pairs of old shoes in exchange for one beautiful, well-made pair from their new line. The challenge will raise awareness for America Recycles Day and echoes an ideal that I’m all about: quality, not quantity! One pair of beautiful, versatile shoes that you actually want to keep wearing for years can replace a closet full of throw-aways and help you leave a softer footprint on our earth.

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Pink, blue and tan plaid wool skirt: Purchased as part of my 1950s sockhop girl Halloween costume at Unique Thrift Shop for $4.99. I took this pic right before it found a new home with Jeanne‘s cousin.

Grey blazer: This is such a unique lil’ number with its military-gone-femme appeal. I got it at a Korean shop a few years ago and wear it with everything from jeans to shorts.

Slate booties: These Genesis peep-toe booties are so comfy and really go with just about anything, as you’ll see from the four other looks I put together around them!

Gold Libra medallion: This vintage Tiffany pendant belonged to my dad who was a Libra – just like me. Pretty pimp if I do say so meself!

Lavender camisole: A gift from my mom’s friend Mrs. Ho, who works for Ravel.

Tan bag: I’ve had this suede bag for so long and have carried it to so many places that it’s as dirty as Linus’ blanket*. I still think it looks great though and love how soft it is now. Some things just get better with age!

*EDIT: For some reason, I combined the characters of Linus and Pigpen from Peanuts above! I think what I wrote still makes sense (sort of).
