fairy woodland wonder skirt


Sometimes, when I find things at a super low price, I just can’t imagine my luck that others would have passed it over. The other day, when thrifting with my dear friend, I found this lovely watercolor/petal/fairy/whimsical skirt…for $4. Stop it. $4? Where am I not going to wear this whimsical fairy skirt?! This skirt got quite a few comments, mostly relating to how whimsical the skirt is. I really couldn’t agree more. It’s a fairy woodland wonder skirt and I’ll be sporting it whenever I can. Hmm magic fairy skirt….fashion life metaphor…am I reaching to say that this skirt is a reminder to carry a little whimsy and magic with us where ever we go? I certainly will take as much magic and whimsy with me as I can. Never know when you might need it.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) When I am wearing a statement top or skirt, I tend to either further dress it up or dress it completely down. With this outfit, I went for “dress it up” when I added a striped top, herringbone blazer, and rhinestone necklace. Conversely, an option would be to completely dress it down by adding a plain black sweater- perhaps a cable knit sweater. Another way to dress it down would be with a jean jacket and tank top or t-shirt. There’s no wrong way to dress up or dress down a statement piece as long as you stay consistent with either dressing it up or down. I generally love to just go all out, personally!

2) I was wearing skinny jeans when I thrifted this, though I would highly recommend wearing leggings when thrifting for skirts and dresses in order to check for proper fit without the bulk of jeans! The skirt is a tiny bit loose, but with the striped top tucked in, it ended up fitting perfectly. Additionally, I think this skirt may have been overlooked as a “summer skirt,” but with leggings, you can see right away that it can serve as a cooler weather piece as well. I took a risk assuming this would be the case despite the fact that I was wearing it with jeans when I tried it on, but it ended up working out!

Anyone else loving whimsical pieces this fall? Find a favorite piece while thrifting or huntressing?

Thank you, readers, as always, for stopping by and sharing in my adventures, while also sharing your own!

  1. That skirt is so pretty and have to agree with others that it was a great find! I think you paired it perfectly with the stripes, tights, and accessories. You have such pretty style!!! ❤

    • I’m concerned about answering this and ‘fessing up. HAHAH! Okay okay, I probably go once a week, sometimes every other week. Living downtown makes it really easy to pop in somewhere and do a quick scan to see if there’s any good deals.
