Linen and sweater skirt



At the thrift store I bought a pretty salmon colored cotton sweater with a beautiful knit pattern. It was a terrible cut but lovely knitting. Also at the thrift store I found a raspberry colored linen skirt that had cute pockets but was just too short. This weekend in a flash of inspiration I saw that they should be together and this was the result! I love the gentle scallop to the bottom edge, and tone-on-tone color schemes are very hip right now. I'm super pleased, and I have another linen skirt and sweater combo to try this out again this weekend. As a bonus, the sweater arms were chopped off to make some matching arm warmers...

Neat - and where in the heck do you come up with these super ideas? I would've never thought to combine the 2, but the results are stunning.

Cool! Great color combination, and very attractive---like it's from some little, upscale, not-quite-mainstream boutique.
