What I Wore: Denim Jacket, Sleeveless Top, and Wrap Skirt

As the blogger and photographer behind Living Outside the Stacks, I independently select and write about stuff I love and things I think you’ll enjoy too.

Hey, y’all, hey! How are things on your side? Things have been *whew* over here… The good: my youngest daughter defended her Master’s thesis last week and, in her words, she “…won!” I was so proud of her. We watched the defense on line and, y’all, listening to her made me see my kid in a whole new light. And the bad: The Hubs dislocated his shoulder and has been in pain for the last few days. Pray for me.

Kidding.

He’s actually feeling better now, but it was a rough few days. For both of us.

MY OUTFIT

How cute is this skirt? It’s a sari wrap skirt that I found through Instagram. Y’all, they saw me coming. The Instagram advertisers, I mean. When I see the ads, I almost immediately go to the shop and start scrolling. I like things that are unusual. Outfits I won’t see coming and going. And these cute little vintage sari wrap skirts are everything.

The skirts are dual layered with a longer under skirt and a shorter overskirt to create a beautiful multi-layered pattern. I was a little concerned because this is a wrap-style skirt and I thought it’d either come undone or that there’d be modesty issues. I experienced neither {even though I’m almost certain that I didn’t tie the skirt properly}. There are all sorts of tutorials for tying the skirts, but I didn’t watch any because I was soooo excited about wearing my skirt to work.

 

 

 

This skirt was what they call a “blind date” purchase, meaning I didn’t select anything about the skirt, other than the length. This is a tea length skirt, my other skirt is a mini length. When I first saw the color/print combination, I was relieved. I wanted something neutral but with a little flair to it and this design hit the nail on the head.

A special note about this particular skirt: these skirts are handmade by artisans in India and Nepal of recycled materials.

WHERE I WORE IT

Like I said above, I was so excited about receiving my skirt that I didn’t watch the styling tutorials. I wore my skirt on the first warm work day. I wasn’t traveling for work, so I knew I’d be close to home. You know, if the wrap style skirt didn’t work for me.
