Although this morning’s temps topped out at 37F, I wore my new skirt to work today!
I HEART this skirt. And in my head, I know what I’m going to do the next time I make it, to give it a little variation. Since it’s lined, it’s actually heavy, so even the cold temps this morning weren’t an issue. Next time around (for a purely summer skirt), I’m going to find a lighter weight muslin for the lining. I think, too, that I may shorten it slightly (right above the knee), and maybe lower the midriff a tad as this is quite high waisted. But I LOVE the fabric (it’s a windham fabric, their Bella line)
And yes, I know the boots aren’t really the right shoes for this. I had planned on wearing these
but they didn’t look so great with this:
(the compression sock I’m wearing to help with the swelling). In fact, nothing in my closet looks good with these socks, except maybe other running clothes.
I’m not a fan of synthetic socks. They make my feet sweaty (sorry, TMI), and they slide around in my shoes. So today I found some smartwool compression socks online and ordered those. Hopefully they’ll get here soon.
