I'm not one who often goes for patterns, but I fell in love with this skirt from Shade when I saw Elaine wearing it last week (can you tell, I heart clothed much?). And tada! the black and white version arrived in my mailbox over the weekend. Shade clothing, if you're reading, I heart you, too!

And here: its debut. For the cold, I added a wool sweater and my wool coat, which kept me toasty on an extremely frosty day.

So nice to see you in a pattern! Love the skirt on you, especially with the pop of red at the top.

I loooove this look with the wool coat, the length is perfect with how your skirt falls. I really liked Elaine's skirt too, but your version is also classy. :)

I LOOOOVE it!!! You're totally rocking that skirt! I went to Shade Clothing this past weekend and i almost got the black and white one... Seriously, we could've been twinners.

Love the pattern and use of color in this outfit. I usually get stumped on how to wear my black-and-white clothing without feeling blah about it and you pull this off so well. You look very European and chic!

The skirt is so pretty - both you and Elaine styled it perfectly! Love the color of the scarf, it compliments this look really well!

My heart is broken. That skirt is sold out in my size! And I was ready to pull the trigger, too. Woe is me. :( You look perfect, tho!

I think it's cool how the combination of gray and camel takes the skirt from spring-like to winter-like. I love both versions of the skirt -- Elaine's and yours, too!
