Fall Wish-list Item # 11: A Cobalt Blue Skirt

Pin It
I am delighted to cross another item off my wishlist – a cobalt blue skirt. Thanks to the sweetest Jean for picking up an extra one for me while ordering hers during the Ann Taylor’s sale a few weeks ago. Despite the fact that it was just a tad big on her, it fits me perfectly throughout. I am so in love with this color. Even the husband said so. I don’t have anything like this in my closet so I am super excited for this addition. Even though this was a mini skirt, I still think the length is totally appropriate for work when paired with black tights. Since the mini-skirt is short and shows off your legs, you would want to keep your top half pretty covered. I paired this skirt with a sweater vest for a much casual look. A pair of booties completes this mini-casual look. This skirt is also a good candidate for achieving a chic color-block look. I can see myself pairing this skirt with a tank top and a black blazer for a dressier look. The possibilities are endless!

What I am wearing:
Skirt: Ann Taylor Ponte Mini Skirt in Cobalt - size 00P
Vest: Forever21 Fair Isle Vest - size Small
Shirt: Ann Taylor Twill Shirt - size 0P
Booties: Banana Republic (buy similar)

Have a great weekend!

It looks great on you! I've been loving this color! think it looks great against Asian skin:)

I have no idea how the 00p is sold out almost immediately so I've been on the hunt.....

That looks great on you Sydney! I love how you styled it, very unexpected with the cozy sweater vest on top! Have a great weekend!


I know this post is about the skirt, but I really love your vest. I've been looking for a sweater with a similar print... but it's tough to find a print of this kind that it isn't too Christmas-y. Well done! Love the whole outfit!

I love your low boots!


I've been eyeing that skirt ever since it hit the AT website, waiting for a good sale to snag it up! I love the way you've styled it - it really shows its versatility, in the sense that it can be worn casually during the day, or business casual, or even at night with some colorblocking accessories!


Sydney I really love this look! I love that vest, and may have to see if my local f21 has one. I am also admiring your lil booties too!


Love how youve paired it with the vest!


The skirt looks gorgeous on you! I love how you styled it here with the vest for a completely work-appropriate look. :) I only own a few cobalt blue items but I love them to pieces!


Gorgeous styling! Love the fair isle vest with it!

My local AT had such slim pickings of the new arrivals last week! I know the story only carries one size for oop or xxsp in each item, but there was hardly anything to choose from, including this skirt!
