OOTD: Mustard skirt with pockets

Cardi: Loft  (2010) (similar here, here and here)

Button up: H&M (similar here and here)

Skirt: F21 (recent) (similar here)

Boots: Gift from overseas  (similar here and here and love these)

Necklace: Macy’s 

Bracelet: The Limited

Boots vs. shoes, not sure which one wins. It snowed a bit last week and it’s been nice and sunny over the weekend…I’m not sure how to dress anymore.  Having a  just-case-it snows-or rains-or it’s-sunny-wardrobe in my car might be something I should consider. 

Oh, a side point…this skirt has pockets = love.

    Ooooo, that's the F21 skirt I wanted but wasn't so sure about the length on me! It looks so good on you and now I'm totally rethinking passing it up! How tall are you? I'm only 5'1" so I didn't think it'd be very flaterring on me.I personally, like the first look with the shoes, but I think it's because I love the pop of color with the skirt!

    I love the turquoise shoes, but you'll have the boots ready just in case you need them. The weather has been so up and down. It's supposed to hit the 70's today and then go twenty degrees lower by the end of the week.

    LOVE this skirt!! I tried on a bright blue one like it at F21 and decided against it because I have so much blue, but this colour rocks!

    @Kaleigh Michelle – thank you. I think my vote is on shoes too :)@My Dressy Ways – I'm 5'6".. A while back F21 had a similar skirt like this one only a bit shorter. If I come across one I'll let you know :)@fshnonmymind – The weather is crazy, mornings super cold and then it warms up so much during the day. I guess layers might be the key :)@Ugly Duckling – thank you 🙂 Skirts with pockets are my favs.@Kelly – thank you 🙂 I saw the blue one too but the fabric was a bit thinner. But it's pretty.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!! Either boots or shoe wins! (Seriously, I've been having the same problem here! I did the exact same thing. I start with a shoe then changed to boots before I left the house!) I have a mustard skirt with pockets so you may see a similar outfit one day!! And totally agree! skirts+pockets = FAB!xo~sam

    The leopard top is so pretty. I think I like the boots with this outfit but the shoes give a great pop of color too.

    You have the cutest style! I am obsessed with mustard skirts. I prefer it with the blue shoes! I love the extra pop of color they add and I think the blue contrasts well with the yellow 🙂

    Where do you live (State) that it's already snowing? I live in ND. Just bought that skirt at F21 yesterday. Wish I had that cardigan to pull it all together. Very cute.

    OMG you totally had me at the title of this post! Love the pop of colour with the shoes but I guess in the colder weather boots win! Either look is gorgeous!

    Thank you girls. I almost didn't get the skirt but now I'm definitely glad I did :)@Anon – I'm in MI. It snowed last week Thursday quite heavy for maybe 10min but it didn't last. Didn't get any snow since, thank goodness :)Express has a similar cardigan to mine, and I also saw one at JCPenny that is pretty similar.

    Totally random but how much do you spend on clothes per year? Just a guess. I think you are as bad as I am.

    Oh Lilly–I LOVE!!!!!! Another amazing mix, you are so great at that. I especially love it with the turquoise heels–very modern and inspired. You rock girl!!

    This is unfortunately a skirt that got away from F21. I really wanted it badly, because of the pockets and color. I say, stick with the boots. But I totally know what you mean by being unsure from the crazy weather.

    Ladies, I really appreciate your sweet comments. Thank you :)@Anon – oh boy, that's a good question. I really don't track how much I spend. My monthly budget is $200 but at times I spend less (and sometimes more). Clothes my husband buys me don't count ;-)@Anon – aww, thank you. That means a lot 🙂

    The entire outfit is so, so cute. I don't know what I like more… the teal pumps? flowy skirt? printed cardigan? How about all of it! You look great, Lilly!

    Do you still sell clothes you don't wear on your blog? I have read your entire archive and read that you mentioned that you sold clothes you no longer wear.

    @Anon – Not at the moment. I need to clean out my closet, again, and put aside clothes I haven't worn (or no longer can fit in) to side and will hopefully post it on "shop my closet" blog soon. So stay tuned :)@Cee and Beth – thank you ladies 🙂

    The weather is so crazy right?! I vote the blue heels for sure. It's so fun and cute. Save the boots for really cold days and snow. Cheers, Bre

    Love this skirt! Pockets on a skirt/dress are the best. I like the skirt with the boots better, but the pumps add an unexpected pop of color.

    OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEE, LILLY!! Every time you go shopping, for every piece you buy, can you just buy an extra one for me? Yep, thanks. 😀 I prefer the boots with this the top/cardi you have here, but I know the turquoise pumps would be freaking amazing with other options on top too!

    I would have never thought to put those teal shoes with this outfit. I love it though. The pop of color looks fab!
