It is Skirt Time! What is your favorite look?

I am such a skirt – and I mean that literally! I love skirts. Give me a skirt over pants or a dress anytime. I definitely have more skirts than anything else in my closet. So today was skirt time! If you want to shop the looks – all links are available at the bottom of this post.

During 2014 I had received lots of great fabric from Vlisco (thank you!). And as I am a strong believer that you can never have enough skirts, I went to my local tailor in Brooklyn and got these nice, streamlined skirts created. So below you see a skirt and crop top created from Vlisco’s Bloom collection, an A-line skirt from their Voilà for you IV collection and another A-line skirt from their Hero collection. Which print do you like best?

Bloom collection

The Urban Maasai
This skirt I created from a Maasai blanket that I bought from the The Urban Maasai. Initially I wanted to use it as a scarf or throw-over to keep me warm in the brittle NY winter. But as there was so much fabric, I decided to create a skirt instead. The colors are very vibrant and the material is great for a winter skirt. I am wearing it all the time!

Kaela Kay
I fell for the Esi Millie skirt because of the combination of stripes and prints, as well as the blue/purple/yellow color. This skirt just looks different. I had to get rid of the pleats as anything pleated just doesn’t look good on me – I am a straight A-line skirt kinda girl. But now I am wearing this skirt at least once a week! Sometimes twice.
