Rage against the dying light

I realized a few weeks ago that I don't have a basic short black skirt. I have a midi and a maxi, but nothing perfect for every day wear. I found one the other night while thrifting and it's perfect. It's structured, comfortable, and perfect with just about everything. I have a feeling I'll be wearing this skirt a lot this Fall. So, get used to it. I picked this shirt up at the Tigers Jaw show. It's pretty big (unisex tee's are the WORST) and kind of stiff, but whatever because Tigers Jaw.

This weekend, my friends and I went to Cleveland for brunch. I had an avocado tofu benedict that made me want to cry because it was so delicious. We guzzled coffee, went to a huge market, walked around, and ended up at Lake Erie. It was a beautiful day. Perfect weather, good friends, chill jams, and long drives...that's what fall's made for, right?

Skirt: Thrifted

  1. Congrats on the thrift find! I LOVE the way you styled it!

  2. Avocado tofu Benedict sounds AMAZING! Very cool shirt. I actually don't mind unisex shirts, I always find that women's shirts always have weird-half sleeves.



  3. That is a great skirt, not surprised you are thrilled!! Brilliant styling too!!!
    What is this wondrous avocado tofu Shsg I hear tell of!!! Photographic evidence for ogling is required!:-) x

  4. Such a cute outfit. I've been nuts for monochromatic outfits lately. I've got to say that the perfect t-shirt is harder to find than the perfect dress. The material, the shape, the durability...it's a perfect combo that requires the alignment of the planets to appear in your life.


    1. Monochromatic outfits are so hard to pull off. I get so excited when it actually works!

  5. A good black skirt is always a welcome wardrobe addition, as this outfit attests!

  6. Now that I think of it...I don't have a mini black skirt either!! Just midi and maxi :O. I'll have to hit a thrift store soon, it seems! This one looks very cute on you :). The pleats are so pretty and I love the effortless feel of your styling

  7. The skirt IS perfect! I feel like I'm always on the quest for the perfect black short work skirt... That one suits you so well and I love how you've styled it!


  8. Pshhhh, "do I even know how to layer"?
    YES YOU DO! You are a layering queen :D
    Haha, thanks for your last comment on my blog though, it made my day.
    Sounds like you had one of those lovely fall days for sure. Great score with that skirt - it's definitely perfect! Can't wait to see how else you'll be wearing it :)
