Purple tee + grey floral skirt

Good news, y’all, I am off-contract for summer term! {Insert sigh of relief x 100 — it’s been quite the challenging year.} But I still have some work outfits in the queue, taken during my last week of the term.

First up is a more casual look, pairing my Pride & Prejudice tee with a grey-and-white floral skirt. I wondered if this outfit was “enough” for the blog, but then I realized that I hadn’t yet featured this P&P tee on the blog! I’ve worn it quite a few times in real life but mostly with casual-around-the-house outfits.

Details:  Purple P&P tee, Out of Print Clothing via ModCloth, gift from Sam {exact}  //  Floral skirt, Marks & Spencer, Abu Dhabi {dress with similar print}  //  Pewter wedges, Payless, old {similar} {similar, in pewter and different colors}  //  Dangly pearl earrings, parting gift from Abu Dhabi {similar} {similar}

I wore dangly pearl earrings to elevate the look a bit for work.

I really like the longer length of this tee — both tees I’ve gotten from Out of Print clothing are longer in length — and I like the look of it paired with a longer skirt. I got this skirt overseas when I was living in the UAE, where it was rare to find a skirt long enough to cover my knees (and not have it be maxi-length). This midi skirt was also great to wear overseas because the lining is also made of cotton!

I haven’t worn this grey floral skirt all that often, but I always like it when I do. The embroidered pattern is subtle and pretty, and it’s of a fabric designed to look a bit wrinkled, so it’s no big deal if it actually is wrinkled. (That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it!) 😉

    What a fun way to style a graphic tee. I love finding a cotton skirt or dress with a cotton lining … they are hard to find! Don’t know why so many linings are polyester – it defeats the purpose of wearing light, breathable cotton.

      I know, right? And those polyester linings are usually more constrictive than the actual skirt. I don’t get it. And that’s even if you have a lining at all! But this skirt is really nice to wear, and I have a Gap striped shirtdress that also has a cotton lining. 🙂
