A while back, I got a sale picks request for circle skirts. I did my best, but as I mentioned in that post true circle skirts are hard to find. This windowpane-print skirt is pieced, but closer to the real deal than most others I’ve found. And how amusing that it’s a circle skirt printed with squares! HAH! Wait, I’m the only one who thinks that’s funny? Oh, fine.

I forgot to get a photo of the incredibly weird kangaroo-style pockets in this skirt. I mean, I’m in favor of skirt pockets. Big time. But I’m a little confused as to why Kate Spade thought this particular skirt should get hoodie pockets. I’m sure she has her reasons.

    There’s something about a circle skirt that makes you feel like a lady. The windowpane pattern is on trend and black and white is an easy background to work with. All-in-all, great skirt!

    I am in love with that skirt, and with these photos! Your husband does such a great job, and you are stunning in all of these shots. I love the look on your face in the first one. 🙂

    I’ve made a full circle skirt – white cotton, just above the ankles. Very demure 🙂 It took me a three hour train trip to hem it (by hand, I’m obsessive like that). They do use a LOT of fabric and it’s important to get the fabric weight right so that it hangs nicely (oh and you have to let it hang for a while before hemming so all the fabric drops properly and you can then get a straight hem. )Do love the idea of a pouch pocket – it would be very easy to put in AND sit nice and flat.

    I love this outfit on you. I think the red cardy and purse are just the icing on the cake! Red looks wonderful on you!

    This is such a darling and perfect outfit– showing that tried and true color combinations never go out of style. I love the skirt paired with that belt, too. The whole outfit just has a sweet harmony to it!

    I love EVERYTHING about this look! And, yes, I’m amused the the “squaring the circle” idea of the skirt too.

    All I can see is you! Beautiful, timeless, a bouquet of flowers.
