And, this is what I ended up wearing.
After I threw on the skirt on top of my tights and walked around the house a bit, I found that the Belle Cotton Tafetta skirt kept sticking to my tights. This drove me absolutely insane so I ripped the skirt and tights off and realizing that I was going to be late, I threw on my grey trousers with the flared cuff leg.
The skirt was certainly a much cuter outfit but had I had to wear that all day long, I am certain that I would have "lost it" sometime during the day just out of sheer frustration of having to fight with my tights and the darn skirt.
Thursday's outfit ended up being: Victoria Cami in Bright Fuschia, Lea Merino Cardigan in Bright Fuschia, Trousers from Reitmans, Silk Flower pin from H & M, necklace and coordinating bracelet from BR.
