A few weeks ago me & Charlotte of Boyer Family Singers, discovered that we both owned vintage kilts in the same plaid pattern. We knew we had to do outfit posts of us both wearing our skirts, on our respective blogs. So be sure to check out her outfit post on her & her sisters blog!
When coming up with a fun way to style my skirt, I knew there were several style routes I could go with: all out vintage, prep school, classic, modern, or a mix of styles for a fresh look. I decided to wear my kilt in a way I had never done before: with a graphic tee shirt & cardigan [since we are still in the dead of winter]. Add a statement necklace for a bit of glam. Tights for much needed warmth for my poor legs, and of course, my new combat boots which add that vintage touch. I really like the look these boots bring to my skirts & dresses [kinda old-fashioned & vintage-y].
