The skirt is very light so I wear shorts underneath. I learned from my mistakes when I accidentally pulled a Marilyn Monroe the last time I wore it. My son actually helped me to pick out the outfit, in fact he told me to wear my "Skellington shoes" as he calls them. I think they worked out quite nicely. This outfit is perfect for a day like today. It had rained the day before and I was unsure of the temperatures. The sweater kept me warm in the office. It was comfortable too, which is always nice on a Monday.
