Hello and welcome!
I've stepped a little bit out of my comfort zone for today's outfit post and I styled a tiered mini skirt I found at Goodwill. It was only a few dollars and I thought my daughter might like it, but she didn't like the color. I however am loving this pretty dusty blue and I wanted to style it before deciding whether to put it into the donate bag or hang on to it.
I'm drawn to these types of skirts but have to admit I feel like I may be too old to pull this style off :( And it doesn't help that I have no idea what tops to wear with skirts.... Hard to believe I used to wear skirts/dresses often in my late teens/early adult life.

As mentioned, I picked this skirt up from Goodwill, the brand is by Shein which is known for their low prices and therefore (sadly) not for the best quality. When I had found the skirt I had no idea it was by Shein and thought the quality seemed good. It's a polyester/cotton blend. I later found the tag on the side of the skirt. It washed up well and is easy to iron, however it it rather thin and I was afraid it would be a bit see through. If it is, I can't tell by looking at these pictures. Of course there is always the option to wear a slip under it since the skirt is not lined. I'm wearing these slip shorts.
As I found this at a second hand shop, this exact print is no longer available, but if you are looking for something like this you can take a look at Shein's current tiered skirts. They do have several to choose from at various lengths.
Also several to choose from at Amazon Fashion:
I paired the skirt with a short V-neck cardigan by J. Crew. It looks white in the photos but is actually a sort of ivory color. It's a few years old so no longer available but if you're looking for a shorter style cardigan, Nordstrom has several options.
I had this idea to wear cognac colored shoes/sandals with this outfit. These are by Natural Soul purchased a few years ago from Kohl's. Unfortunately, looking at these pictures I realize once again that sandals with a high vamp such a these aren't the best choice for petite women as they shorten the legs. I really should pack them up and sell or donate. They are just so comfortable to walk in and comfortable shoes are a must for me!
For accessories I added a layered necklace to fill in the neckline and also 3 coordinating beaded bracelets.
My saddle bag is by Nine West, another thrifted item I had found a few years ago.
When the photographer asks you to twirl, you twirl 😁
Thanks so much for visiting!
