Yesterday, I wrote about where I find outfit inspiration. I recently stumbled upon jesse anne o's blog, where she wears this American Apparel skirt in inventive ways. I loved this skirt hard this summer, when I wore it just about every other day, but I hadn't thought as much about translating it into autumn and winter wear. I love the way she belts it (borrowed), pairs it with tights (borrowed), and keeps the palette sophisticated.

And to keep the tone of the outfit serious, I did my librarian hair, which I will sadly have to retire when the weather gets too cold to head out without a hat.

American Apparel also does a pretty nice job on its website pairing this skirt with lots of tops, including button-ups. I love the combination and wanted to try it out myself. I like the way this turned out...expect to see more of this summer skirt in the mix this winter.

The tonality is amazing- who would have thought that brown, blue and grey could look so posh? And I am always a fan of ruffles- make every outfit both prim and fun at the same time.

We have very similar styles. Does that make me a nerd?
