At the Depot

When Sacramento posed the question, Skirt or Pants, for this week's Share-in-Style, I knew the answer immediately.  BOTH.  For me it's not Either/Or, but And.  A dress over pants has been my Go-To outfit, especially for travel, for many years now.

I could analyze why I do this, but I'm not going to.  The truth is individual style often has no rhyme or reason.  It is a feeling.  Clothes mimic a personality; they can even bare a soul.  You know that old saying, a picture is worth a thousand words?  Well, an outfit is worth even more.  Ask me to define myself with words, and I go all shy and tongue-tied.  I'll let these pictures (and my dress over pants) tell the story for me.



  1. You are so right: personal style is a reflection of personality... And an outfit only works if it's in harmony with the wearer's personality, and that's why it is impossible to copy someone else's style. Your outfit here seems so relaxed and perfect, for you.

  2. What a lovely photoseries and a nice outfit!
    I often wear dresses over trousers too and make my own style, trend or not isn't the question...

  3. I love everything in your post ! Beautiful photo :) great outfit :) x

  4. Amazing outfit! I enjoy looking at every detail - the fading colors, the buttons, the hat, the purse... great personal style and great photo session too!

    To me, actions are worth thousands of words or thousands of pictures. It's how we live our life, the choices we make, that is what tells about people more than words, pictures or outfits. :) xx

  5. The button detailing of the pants is fantastic! I like a dress over pants too, and this looks great on you. Great location - the hat is perfect for it.

  6. What a great look! I'm in awe of those pants, fabulous detailing.

  7. Amazing skirt+pants combo! You look great in it. The photos are lovely.

  10. What a brilliant decition to wear both, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
    You do look fantastic and edgy.

  11. You are absolutely right, personal style is a visual description of you as a person. And that's what makes it so interesting. However it is not always the only thing defining you and sometimes people jump into conclusions just because the way you look.
    Your style looks just perfect and I love gradient colour in clothes.
