Start with a great skirt



Some pieces of clothing are absolutely meant to be worn when you need to feel like ultra-feminine and stylish.  For work, I typically wear classic straight trousers/dresses/pencil skirts (shocker), and I rarely stray from shapes or cuts that I'm comfortable work with my figure.  I decided to break from the typical business casual attire and wear this Emily Hallman 'Cecilia' skirt.  I must say, I felt so ladylike, chic and comfortable in this outfit... which is the ultimate outfit perfection.

I will just give a tiny warning about this skirt - while there are infinite options to style this and I got tons of compliments on it - it did make me feel the need 'twirl' quite often while wearing it.  A need which I indulged... often.

  9. You are great... one of my favorite bloggers!

    The only thing that could have made the skirt better is if it had been leather. Leather skirts rock & you can totally work one!

  10. Y'all know by now that I LOVE a good full skirt that's perfect to twirl in! I'd love it in about 6 colors, but I have the ivory version that I have worn 3 times in the past month--with a simple tee or great blazer. I can't tell you how much I LOVE the beautiful way Sarah has styled it! I love navy and orange together, and the blouse with a belt is such a smart combination. So modern and classy and PRETTY!! Great job, Sarah (as always)!
