Transitioning


Transitioning….in so many ways. I am just back from vacation, and I am in the process of transitioning back into reality. The weather is decidedly fall-like, and it is just a matter of time before my winter uniform of skinny jeans, sweaters, and boots will take over for good. But in these in-between days where there is still the chance of some warm and lovely weather, there appears to be a need for some transitional dressing; a term that rarely if ever applies to those if us here in Scotland, so I suppose I'm happy to have the opportunity.

This is a long skirt that I found at a thrift shop back home in the US. It is super comfy, and I liked the sort of 90's vibe it gives off. And... it's leopard, which of course, in and of itself is awesome. If I'm honest, I have always been a little leery of long skirts, as they can look kind of sister wife if not styled with a little panache, but I liked this leopard one because of its simple cut in a crazy pattern. It is a good balance to have a leopard print in a simple silhouette, and if it gets warm, it is easy to peel off a layer without feeling totally nekkid.

  5. Ah. Transitions! (I was making up some lyrics in my head to be sung to the tune of "Tradition!" from "Fiddler on the Roof." I may finish that, actually ... it would make a blog!)
    You are an inspiring woman! Great pieces all on you. Gotta remember to keep my long-flowing ones near the front.
    Lovely creature that you are, you look fabulous at all times of the year.
