When an Outfit Just Happens

Gold Hoop Earrings: Gift from Hubby
Pearls: Gift from Friend
Black Beads: Had for Ages
Coral Ring: Silver Artist at an Antiques Show
Red Leather Belt: Wall's Outlet
Top: DIY
Skirt: Vintage Dress refashioned into Skirt
Red Blazer: Thrifted
Red Leather Shoes: Marshall's

I usually choose what to wear to church on Saturday night.  I wasn't sure last night so I hung several options out, among which was this skirt.  I had planned to wear it with a top that is in storage, but really it isn't cool enough yet.  I had finished painting the Owl on my tank top yesterday, so it was laying across the ironing board, and as my gaze fell on it this morning I knew it would pair nicely with the skirt.  I first thought of a Black belt, but when I reached for the belt I grabbed the Red one instead.  Since the belt was Red, it made sense to wear the same color shoes.  I stumbled across my Coral ring when I was digging for my pearls.  Right before I headed out the door, I grabbed my Red Blazer.  Outfit complete.

When I was reconstructing the Skirt from a Vintage Dress, I decided not to attach the lining.  I thought I'd have more options if it was left separate, then I could wear the long liner, or a short liner, or tights, or shorts.  For the rest of the day, I removed the Lining Skirt and wore Black shorts underneath.
