What I wore - DIY sweater skirt

You know I love to Refashion! I took on the challenge to refashion a sweater - well I created 5 different items to wear from that sweater challenge. One being this skirt which I admit, I am kind of smitten with.....
I love it because it's so comfortable - one of my favorite things about fashion is when style meets comfort.

 I love the stripes too and the length. I can wear it as is or pop some colored tights or leggings underneath it for some added fun! Plus the color is "neutral". (tip #1) So many colors can be paired with gray! I first paired it with my pop of accessories (yellow) and then I paired the same outfit with the pop of color being the leggings and necklace. Same outfit - 2 different looks. 

(what's up with my "smirk" in that photo? secretly laughing at myself...)

Want the tutorial on how I created the skirt? 
Pop back tomorrow!

  1. It's verry nice outfit, but I don't get short sleeves and sandals in snow. What's about it?
