Breezy summer skirt

J. Crew isn't what it used to be but every now and again, they still make an exceptional winner and that is what this skirt is -- cotton, cotton lined, easy, breezy, and always works in the heat. 

On my way to take my kid to the day. You saw me wearing it in Seattle, you see me wearing it again. This time with a knotted tee and striped shoes as per one of Angie's examples.

    Love this.  A little unexpected shot of dark colour really ups the look .  Great fit on the t, too.  

  • Marilyn replied 8 months ago

    Lovely as always, Suz. :)

    Don't you just hate it when you find a great cotton or linen skirt/dress and the lining is poly.  Grrr.  Breathable, cotton linings for the win!

    Super cute! Your hair and smile elevate your outfit THAT MUCH more!

  • Marilyn replied 8 months ago

    Nemosmom......Yes!  Suz has the best smile.  Always radiant.

    Hair is super- fantastic too !

  • KMM replied 8 months ago

    Love that skirt more every time I see it ;) But then, I'm biased toward it as you know.

    Super cute outfit!

  • Suz replied 8 months ago

    Aww, thank you all. You can thank my dentist for the smile! I just paid her I don't want to say how much for a new crown this week. OUCH! But all in the name of health and beauty, right? :) 

    Also, I LOVE my hairdresser. If anyone is in Vancouver and wants a short haircut, her name is Johanna and she is at Moods Salon in Yaletown. Not cheap but brilliant and a really nice young woman, too.

    I just love how you work the heck out of your clothes, Suz, and with every outfit you make them seem new and fresh. This skirt is a favorite of mine on you!

  • Katerina replied 8 months ago

    You look gorgeous Suz! I love the dark navy on you and the skirt is really beautiful. This outfit is one of my favourites too.

  • Eliza replied 8 months ago

    Suz- such a refreshing outfit and so totally you. Impeccable! Stay cool. 

  • Laurie replied 8 months ago

    My favorite floral, dark floral! And I've been all about the boatneck this summer. You look so cute!

  • christy replied 8 months ago

    Love everything about this! I can’t wear this silhouette at all but when I see fab outfits like this, I certainly wish I could copy! Breezy and chic.

  • Sal replied 8 months ago

    Gorgeous. Biased as I could almost copy this and will when it is not a frosty rugby watching morning!!

    You really suit this shape and it looks modern sassy and pretty. I know pretty is a loaded word but it is a sincere compliment.

  • Chris987 replied 8 months ago

    Gorgeous! Love the dark top with this skirt. And the sandals are unexpected and very cool with the outfit (no pun intended)

  • SarahD8 replied 8 months ago

    Great outfit, Suz. That skirt is a real workhorse and so versatile. I love the subtle pattern matching with the sandals.

    I think J. Crew kicks the quality up a notch with its Liberty items. I'm wearing a J. Crew/Liberty popover top at the moment -- recently "thrifted" on Ebay and was delighted to see that it even has bra strap catches! Just an extra level of thoughtfulness seems to go into these pieces.

    Gorgeous,fun and feminine summer look.

  • Aquamarine replied 8 months ago

    What a versatile skirt. Always looks fab, no matter how you wear it.

    I loved it Seattle pics but I think I might love this version even more.

    These skirts are perfect on you and very Audrey Hepburn in that you look feminine without being too sweet.

  • anne replied 8 months ago

    Great outfit and winning with the cotton lining!

  • Joy replied 8 months ago

    It sounds like you found the perfect summer skirt. You could give a master class in styling. I will have to look at JCrew for skirts.

  • MidwestrnChic replied 8 months ago

    Suz, you wear this well, as always.  Lovely!

  • Preppy Pear replied 8 months ago

    This is such a great example of how to wear a fuller skirt in a sophisticated, modern way. Love.

  • CocoLion replied 8 months ago

    Gorgeous!  The ballet neckline goes so well with this kind of skirt.  Very feminine.

  • Jane replied 8 months ago

    Such a lovely print and style of skirt and lovely to have a top in it too. It looks lovely on you. 

  • Kari replied 8 months ago

    Oh that is just lovely! Really sophisticated and unfussy.

  • shevia replied 8 months ago

    You look particularly gorgeous in this picture Suz! Hope the kid had a good flight :) !

  • Laura replied 8 months ago

    You have the matching top too, don't you? You wear this to perfection!
