a fancy skirt by day

Old Navy top (here)/Skies Are Blue skirt (no longer available)(LOVE this one)/Aldo Booties (here)/Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)/Deux Lux clutch - old (want this one)/Michele Watch (similar)/Crow Steals Fire necklace (here)

I have quite a few skirts in my closet including a few I imagined I would wear for "date night." A couple kids later date night doesn't come around as often as it used to.   So, in an effort to get more use out of my existing wardrobe, I managed to tone down what could be considered a fancy skirt into a fancy day skirt. A sweatshirt and booties later...I think this could work as a dress up day for a stay at home mom.





ps. the secret to making a longer sweatshirt work under a light weight shirt is...spanx! you're welcome.
