To Experience Fall's Chill

I was rifling through my closet last night in preparation for my first ever 30 for 30 (more on that tomorrow...) when I found this skirt.
I got it at a thrift store last Spring and have yet to wear it because I couldn't find the exact right look...

And last night it came to me.
I'm kind of in love with this because it makes me feel very Peggy Olson.

Yesterday I complained about how the temperatures hadn't dropped quite as much as I would have liked.  But this morning I had to eat my words. (this is something I'm quite used to)
I woke up to 48 degrees!!
So, these patterned tights were a last minute addition to warm me up.

The thermos filled with hot tea also came along for the ride. 
The tea also kept me warm, plus, it matched my skirt and gave me something to do with my hands.
(an ever present struggle in these outfit posts it seems)

Plaid Skirt: Thrift Store Find; White Camp Blouse: New York & Co*
Blue Flower Pin: Gift from my Fabulously Fashionable God Mother
Black Heels: Jessica Simpson Knock offs from Payless

YAY for Fall temperatures!!

In other news, there is a VIRTUAL FASHION SHOW going on today at bug miscellany!!
Stop by to check out all the lovely ladies and say hello to our fabulous host, Kelli.

*I must have been shopping with my sister, that girl can do some DAMAGE in New York & Co.

LOVE that skirt and those tights! :-) Thanks for the comments - the outfit today is actually one of my favorites. I'd call it one of my "go to" outfits if I want to look nice or if I have somewhere to go (like a lunch meeting). :-)
