Today, however, we have two great submissions... and from sisters! They submitted their outfits months apart (that's how disorganized I am), but both chose to wear a super versatile gray knit skirt. I love how they each styled it, and thought y'all might like to see some "keys" to wearing such a piece!
Elina, on the left, has this styled perfectly for winter. She's got her warm boots and thick collar. As many of us are dreaming about spring, there's still snow swirling outside. I think it's important to stay inspired with winter outfits through at least March lest we grow discontent only looking at spring fashions! She has her hair pulled back in a sleek, sophisticated way that compliments the chunky sweater well. Simple button earrings complete her look. Notice how she has a shirt poking out and giving some contrast between her sweater and skirt. This helps keep things flattering instead of frumpy!
Liza, on the right, shows us a little more of a spring (or southern winter ;)) styling. (Although she sent it for fall- ha!) A simple colorful cardigan in a perfect accent color to the gray takes this skirt from season to season. She also has boots, but instead of for warmth in the snow, these could be for splashing through puddles. She lightened up the gray and burnt orange (or brown?) with a lighter gray and tan layering combo, and tied the whole thing in a pretty bow with the patterned scarf. Notice how the boots end before the hem of her skirt begins-- the little bit of legging (instead of bare skin or another accent color, which would kind of break up the eye-flow that the black provides) makes the look extra flattering.
Now here's what the girls have to say, albeit a little outdated:
Elina, and I am a 13 year old girl living in PA. My one goal in life is to be Christ's servant and learn more about Him everyday!!! I enjoy:
photography, blogging, running, reading, drinking tea, and being homeschooled!!!
I wore this outfit to church and since in PA it's beginning to really feel like fall I decided to wear the sweater for cuteness and for warmth.

Hi I'm Liza and I am 15 years old, I live with my family in Pennsylvania, and my mom home schools me and my sister!
I love painting with watercolors, sewing (if my things turn out ;), and learning more about Jesus! I also really like photography, fashion, and vintage things!
The thing that I love about this outfit is that it was so comfy! The skirt is a nice stretchy material, and so was the shirt, but not to stretchy that everything was hanging. The tan tank was a nice touch to the outfit, because it separated the gray shirt from the gray skirt! It was a nice breezy September day, so the little brown cardigan was a perfect touch, and it kept me somewhat warmer! And the scarf just added a bit of color to the whole outfit, and also because I love wearing scarves in the fall/winter! I blog over at The Daily Buzz- www.dailybuzzbuzz.blogspot.com

Aren't these great outfits? I'm a huge fan of versatile pieces, and these sisters proved that a gray knit skirt can be a great one! Blessings, y'all!
