My New Favorite Outfit: Cobalt and Orange

Cobalt and Orange

Last year I was ecstatic when I found this Loft skirt at Goodwill and decided to pair it with my cobalt blazer and lace top today.  The first time I wore this skirt I wore it like this, and I was so pleased with myself.  Yipes, that was pretty bad. Today, on the other hand, I really like this. I really like the texture and color mix and definitely think it's an outfit I'll wear again, although I think I might wear it with my cobalt  Portfolio Shirt first.  What do you think, how would you style this skirt? 

Blazer: Loft $30 c/o Chippmuck from contest I won
Blouse: Loft $16 super pretty option
Skirt: Loft $5 pretty option
Necklace: Stella and Dot same
Bracelets: Stella and Dot  Chimera, Moxie , Renegade
Shoes: Fergalicous $30 similar


  1. Our Goodwills never have such great pieces to select from. This is a great skirt and I love it with cobalt!

  2. I don't think the first was that bad but it is fun to look back see how far your fashion know-how has come, isn't it?


  3. You really love pieces I can tell. nice outfit! :)

  5. I agree with Cheryl, I don't think the first look was bad at all. I think you could still wear it now with just a couple of minor changes. But today's outfit is nice, and I really like the Stella & Dot necklace. Are you wearing two different sets of shoes in these photos?

  6. I love the graphic print on the skirt! I think orange can be a bit of a challenge to style but this cobalt blazer compliments it so nicely!

  15. Love this outfit on you Ginny. The skirt looks amazing on you. The orange with blue perfect combination.


  16. I actually think you styled this super-cute skirt nicely both times. It looks good with deep blues. Your hair looks better now than a year ago, though.

    Stop by to see how I am wearing Navy lately. Have a Great Weekend, Ada. =)

  18. That is a super cute skirt and a great find. You look great in that cobalt color! Enjoy the nice weekend coming up!

  19. That skirt is so pretty! The pattern is definitely something I would gravitate toward, although I used to shy away from orange. It's blogs like yours that have encouraged me to get over my fear of orange :)

  20. Cute! I really like the blue and orange together. I also think this could look really bold and nice with hot pink or yellow...

  21. I love how your outfits are office appropriate, but not boring! LOVE the blazer with the patterned skirt :) Such a great find from goodwill.
