Gone with the Wind Fabulous

Some of you saw this look on instagram. One of my instagram homies said it was "gone with the wind fabulous."   After my husband got home, we went for a quick ride.  He looked at me and said, "Are you riding in that?" I just looked and him and said, "don't come for me, I got this."   He fails to realize that shapewear = biker shorts.  Also, please excuse my ruffle on my shirt, it kept flying up.

Style Note:  I love this skirt, but I don't love wearing Halloween colors.  Black and Orange equal Halloween in my eyes.  Black and Navy equal a way better option that won't have anyone mistaking me for a pumpkin..LOL.  Black and orange are a hard combo to wear,  I still haven't mastered it.  



Outfit Details:  Top - Banana Republic Outlet (similar), Skirt - JIBRI,  Shoes - Steve  Madden (similar)

  2. I don't mind black and orange worn together, rather like it actually. I really love those particular pieces together. The details on the top and skirt are both nice in their own right. Together, you have such a cute outfit. I have a tendency to dress everything up - the striped flats are the perfect shoes to lend the outfit a more casual vibe.

  10. I adore that skirt! I generally don't feel comfortable wearing something that shows my waist due to the way I'm built (super short torso and big lower belly) but I love this look. You look so cute and carefree! I feel the same way about orange and black... same with yellow and black (I always feel like I look like a bumblebee). :)

  11. I love the ensemble! The look of the full skirt and the adorable flats are timeless and fun. I love the fact you show leisure activity with a style alternative that doesn't include yoga pants or biker shorts.

  13. What's he talking about, that outfit was made for riding! I hope you don't mind me asking, but do you find biking hard on the bottom? I haven't ridden in years, and while I'm confident that my legs could keep pedalling, I'm not so sure that my seat on the seat would last for more than ten minutes.

    1. Hi Victoria,
      I've taken spin class on and off for years, so I guess you can say I'm used to it. Sometimes if its been a while since I've ridden my butt will hurt, but you can buy extra seat cushion. It's definitely not as bad as the spin class bike seats lol. Also, get the widest seat possible for your bike. But you will have to condition your bootay! LOL

  16. I bike in dresses all the time (especially when I'm late for work), and may or may not match yellow pumps to my navy bike. I love navy and orange, as well as navy and yellow. My editor matches her shoes to her bike, too, so I'm in good company once I reach the office. All of this is to say that I love this outfit! More bike fashion!
