Classic + quirky | Pairing a novelty print skirt with statement heels

This might just turn out to be one of my favorite outfits of ALL TIME. And I think it’s fair to say from these photos that I felt GREAT in this outfit. I mean:  kitty cats, books, classic pieces like the cardigan and full skirt, plus statement heels, all in one outfit? It’s classic and quirky at the same time.

It’s just so me, isn’t it?!

I got such a kick out of my co-workers’ reactions to this outfit, which basically went like this:

Co-worker, walking by:  “Cute skirt!

Me:  “Thanks!

[Co-worker pauses. Looks back and leans in for a closer look.]

Co-worker:  “Wait…. are those cats?!

Me:  “Yep.” 😀

Co-worker:  [Squealing in glee]

This skirt demands double-takes! (As do my shoes, my beloved Fluevogs.)

I think I will have a lot of fun remixing this skirt, which was a recent Christmas gift from my mom. And pockets? YES, PLEASE!

    Love the cat skirt! I was just browsing Modcloth today thinking that I needed one of their vintage dresses in my life. That skirt looks great with the tights and retro shoes!
