Closet Dive! Part 2

Another outfit I particularly liked from the Closet Dive was this combination of neutral skirt and top with a lightweight, bright linen shirt worn as jacket, belted with a thrifted scarf.

I’ve owned the skirt for several years, and it is a great value.  It’s linen, lined, a nice neutral, and pairs nicely with tailored pieces for work but served me equally well during our 2008 travels in France and Switzerland, during which the goring proved convenient for all-day outings by foot.  The ensemble above is near perfect; my only reservation are the heeled sandals which aren’t exactly the most comfortable footwear.  My new OTBT Springfield wedges might be just the thing.

I’ve used the scarf-as-belt concept repeatedly since the Closet Dive, and love it!  It can add just a bit of detail to an outfit that could otherwise veer into blandness.
