Looking Back, Looking Forward

A modern classic. I am a huge fan of anything with a houndstooth print. The fun and flirty yet classic print has an amazing way of instantly livening up a fall and winter wardrobe.

Today’s look features the Limited’s houndstooth print pencil skirt that I bought for $31.07 (retail $59.90) after compounding discounts. The skirt is worn with a green, sleeveless, cowl neck sweater. A red, skinny belt and black booties complete the look.

    I LOVE houndstooth as well, it's truly classic! I was starting to think I was the only one! Glad to hear I'm not!

    Thanks, Soho500!

    Valerie: Yes, a fellow houndstooth-lover! I just can't get enough of the classic print.

    I want this skirt.

    I tried on a few houndstooth skirts recently but they were too big or too small and the stores didn't have my size. I wish there was a limited near me.

    You absolutely have to try this skirt on then, @Colleen. I usually have a similar experience with pencil skirts. In this one, I had to size up (I am wearing a 6), but usually do on bottoms with a slim fit like a pencil skirt. I love the fit and feel of this one.
