WIW: Sept. 1

This is a remix of pieces you have seen:
Halogen pencil skirt
Olivia Moon button down top
EF pale citron silk shell
Taylor cardi
BR grey snake textured belt
Me Too shoes
Necklace is a gift
The silky print top isn't the best worn open but didn't seen right buttoned either. I liked the pattern mixing effect of the necklace on the print.
It was pouring down rain and my hair went limp.
I'd appreciate your thoughts and ideas for this outfit and improvements.
Most of my Halogen seamed pencil skirts have had the hems let out to make them longer, but not this one. It seemed ok for sitting. Would it be better lengthened?

    What a great outfit! I love the necklace and the shoes.i like the length of the skirt.
    I wish we would get some rain.

    I have never seen these pieces before (maybe I was sleeping) but what a nice way to wear a patterned button up! :) I love the grey halogen skirt! I like the length of it as it is now, do you?

    Debbie, I hope you get rain. We have no more in the long range forecast.
    Lyn, I'm not sure how I feel about the skirt length. I wear the grey color the most.

    Joy, what a well-coordinated outfit. Love the jacket and the bag. YLF!

    I would be happy with the skirt length, it looks good.
    Love the whole outfit!

    Joy I'm putting in a vote to lengthen the skirt. I think you'll achieve a sleeker line if it skims the bottom of the kneecap,( even though you have nice kneecaps.)
    I'm with you on the open shirt and pattern mixing: I would not be able to resist that combo either.

    I really like the cool blue and grey tones together.  Looks fab with your coloring.  I kind of like the length of the skirt, and if all your others are longer, it might be nice to keep this one shorter.

    These look really terrific together!

    What a refreshing mix  of colours - you look beautiful in this outfit Joy.
    I'm no skirt length expert - but I like the length of the skirt on you, and find it very leg flattering. As long as you feel comfortable with the "sit test" I think you are good to go.

    ステキ!I mean, you look great. I love the colors here. I think the skirt would look even better if it hit just below the kneecap, as mentioned above, but I'm a sucker for midis. Could we see the blouse buttoned up and tucked, just for fun?
