It’s officially Fall in Florida – my tree’s in full bloom. And it got cool enough to turn off the AC, open up the windows and air out the house. So to celebrate, I wore a skirt that looks like peacock feathers. I live in Florida after all – it’s okay to be a bit tropical even when it’s not summer.
This is another Patagonia Kamala skirt, like the one I posted over the summer. Except that this one is a different print (obviously) and it’s a size smaller, so it sits up a little higher on my waist. The fun thing about skirts is that you can wear multiple sizes, and it just changes how they sit on you. Both sizes work on me right now. Oh, and this skirt was part of an insanely awesome deal I got on eBay. I’ve been stalking Patagonia skirts ever since I got my other one this summer, and this gorgeous peacock one was part of a lot that included a black Calvin Klein maxi dress, a pima cotton jersey button down, and a Juicy Couture night gown. That whole lot cost me a mere $25, including shipping. Which is half the cost of just the skirt new. I’m ditching the night gown (not a Juicy fan), but I’ll definitely be putting the other three into regular rotation.
