June Challenge: skirt and diagonal top

Angie's blog post today inspired today's outfit. I had decided to do some skirts or dresses in my closet for the challenge, so this old but loved summer top is shown with an AT old white Jean skirt. Is the skirt too short? Does the top look too worn? It is on its last season. I'd love your thoughts and suggestions.

    I don't think the skirt is too short.

    The skirt is a great length on you, Joy. It's not short at all, plus I think you have great legs so you rarely have to worry about that.

    The top looks rather pretty and summery. It reminds me of candy! In a good way! Love the visual interest created by the diagonal stripes....it's really cool. Great outfit as usual

    I think this looks great Joy.  I don't see anything worn out looking about the top and the skirt is definitely not too short.  You could pull of shorter skirts too (if you wanted to).

    Beautiful summery outfit, Joy! You always look so polished!

    The skirt is absolutely not too short.  Looks great!  The top looks great to me, but how worn it is is something really something only you can judge up close.

    I love the top! Very cute and summery. Skirt is perfect.

    Gorgeous from top to toe you super fab creature. 

  • Meredith replied 3 years ago

    You look great! That top is so unique. Will you try to replace it with something else as visually interesting?

    Everything looks just perfect. Great summer look.

    The skirt is not too short. And the top does not look worn. Whole outfit is fab.

    Thank you all for your comments and help to see this outfit through your eyes. These are both favorite pieces that have had lots of wear. I'm glad that they still look ok.
    I'm glad the skirt does not look too short. I wish that it were an inch or two longer since summer means bare legs.
    Maneera, the top front has a mesh with printed stripes at angles to the printed stripes on an attached cotton tank underneath. I see what you mean with the candy look.
    Denise, thank you. I wore miniskirts when I was younger and enjoyed showing lots of leg, but veins and knobby knees have taken their toll. Tights still look good.
    Kelly, thank you. Polished? I try but seldom succeed.
    Almost lost my post. Will continue.

    Elizabeth, you are so wise. The top isn't as crisp after laundering as it once was, but I doubt many notice the difference.
    Fusslessness, thank you. This does well in hot weather. The skirt is cooler than shorts.
    Thank you, Angie. You gave me a big smile. xo
    Meredith, I would love to find another top like this one. The diagonal stripes on the sheer layer are my favorite part.
    Thank you Anchie and Brooklyn. It is so helpful to know how the outfit looks to you.

    That skirt is definitely not too short. I love this outfit. The top is great!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you, Debbie. Are you still dealing with over air conditioning at work?

  • cecilia replied 3 years ago

    The top and bottom looks really good and I must add... nice shoes !

  • lyn67 replied 3 years ago
