DOUBLE POOF / Black chiffon peplum over a full skirt over a pleated skirt

Peplum blouse over voluminous skirt take two.  After my failed attempt at this combo last month I wanted to give it another go with the problem area [the longer hemline] fixed.  I used a shorter full skirt this time and created more volume by layering it over another flouncy skirt.  The idea, and eventual execution, of layering the patterned skirt over another skirt was purely accidental and came about as I was trying to figure out which skirt to wear.  Initially I had on the black faux leather one (to go for a flirty all-black ensemble) but wanted to see what effect the patterned skirt would have with the blouse.  I pulled up the daisy skirt over the leather one because I was too lazy to slip it off and after seeing how it looked, it never came off!  I feel that the leather "trim" pulls the outfit together in that the statement skirt is the print block between the two blacks.

One would think having two skirts on would not be comfortable but I honestly didn't feel a difference. In fact it may have added a little bit of height when I sat down, haha.  I hope you had a wonderful Summer Solstice and it is now officially Summer!  Bring on the warm weather!
