So, true story about how I acquired this skirt – While at the dentist, waiting for Andy to be finished with his appointment, I was casually flipping through an issue of People Watch and came across a fashion spread feature this gorgeous olive beauty. I about squealed with delight when I saw the retailer and the under $30 price tag! Of course, I immediately put down the magazine, picked up my phone, and purchased! Just goes to show – you never know when fashion inspiration might strike ;).
The skirt itself features a covered, elastic waist and is made from a soft, velvety fabric with an awesome drape (bonus – it is completely machine washable!). The midi length makes it perfect for the office. I paired with with some textured tights to add visual interest and a cropped cream sweater. I threw on my favorite necklace (similar here and here) of the season for two reasons: 1. It’s amazing and 2. I wanted to pull some black into the top of the outfit to balance out the dark tights.
I can’t wait to style this skirt different ways as the weather gets a little warmer. It will also look so great paired with a grey top, bare legs, and ankle booties. Again, because of the longer, midi length, totally work appropriate!
