The outfit would stand on its own but the shoes send it over the top. The skirt fits beautifully. Nice fabric as well.

Beautiful skirt to go with those fabulous shoes. And I am NOT a shoe person! That fabric is so pretty for the skirt and how special that you can wear it with your mom's blouse.

Oh goodness, those are beautiful shoes! I love your fabric choice for the skirt too. It's unique and makes the skirt all the more beautiful.

How did I miss this gorgeous pattern! Your whole outfit is so cool- I love the fabric, the shoes, and especially that you are using your Mom's college blouse- that makes it extra special. Great job, Christa!

I'm searching my brain for superlatives! Perfect and gorgeous will have to do, because that is what this skirt and whole outfit is!! You've made wonderful use of that special fabric and the fit is classic and flattering. I love it with that beautiful blouse and those outstanding shoes -- it's a three generation outfit! (It CAN'T be true that your youthful mother was in college 46 years ago!!) You look amazing in this.

Love your fabric choice. The skirt fits you perfectly and looks fabulous with those cool shoes. What a great way to freshen your "vintage" blouse with your new skirt and sassy shoes.
