I really wish you guys could see the true color of my skirt, it’s orange not red.  I found this gem at the Goodwill for less than $10 and its 100% silk!  I have been adding more color to my wardrobe and have found thrifting to be the easiest and most affordable way to do so.  
I was racking my brain for the longest trying to figure out how to wear this skirt, I over think things sometimes.  I was trying to “match” it with a top or blouse.  I was thinking since the skirt is bright I should tone it down with a muted top.  Standing in my closet last night, I figured why does it have to “match” and I grabbed my leopard cardi.  I love how the leopard and orange looks together…I am sure I will get some side eyes today at work, who cares.  

Oh and orange is a great color for fall! 

P.S. Ashley and I are meeting up tonight for Miami Fashion Night Out! Will you be attending any FNO activities in your city?

    All you do is WIN at Goodwill. I find most of my pencil skirts there. I'm sure Prissy is super proud of you. I am. The pop of color was bold for you and you pulled it off very well.
