Flippy Skirt for the Win

flippy skirt  flippy skirt

You probably can't tell by some of my ensembles, but I am typically a pretty laidback person when it comes to going out. I'm not really into the whole-changing-my-outfit deal between work and play and usually will go straight from the office to drinks (or whatever) just as I'm dressed.

I got this skirt and it seemed like a fun flippy piece but I didn't want to make a hassle of changing at work for date night (like I needed to lug even more stuff to work). Plus I wasn't entirely too sure it was office-appropriate. So I did what I usually don't do, and bought some extra accessories along so I could make sure I looked office-ready and then switch it up a bit for after-hours. Shoes, bag and piling on some extra jewelry was my ticket. And it all fit into my tote, so I felt like I tried but didn't, you know?

What you ladies don't see is my winter which kept me snuggly warm. And the bare legs, while perfectly fine for the warm-ish GA day, was c-c-cold after the sun set.

  18. That skirt is adorable!
    When I first read your post, I was thinking "day to night....?" Then I remembered, oh yeah, a lot of people go out after work instead of going straight home and crashing on the couch like me! Haha.

    1. Oh no, I go straight home most nights, change into jammies and def crash onto the couch. Nothing like walking my pup at 7pm in my jam pants!

  19. Normally I don't care for this type of skirt but now you have me rethinking that. It looks great on you. Great switcheroo for the day to night look too.

  20. OMGosh, lady! Just when I told everyone I was doing a moratorium on spending because I overspent my budget this month, you come out with the cutest outfit and make me want everything on you! ARGH!!! Especially that skirt! In fact, I just bought it. Double ARGH!!! I'm half-hoping it arrives and doesn't fit so I can return it. ;p

    Btw, come check out today’s post on my blog. I nominated you for an award. Please don't feel obligated to do much with it except bask in the fact that you're super cool. I really just wanted to recognize my peeps, and I am honored to consider you one of them.

    1. Oh no, I hope that's been resolved (I am not tech-savvy person, so unfortunately I can't help at all) - but I did not do anything differently when I loaded my pics. Sorry!

  33. What a beautiful skirt! I would never have thought of pairing it with pink - colour is not my strong point in general - but the pairing looks absolutely beautiful together, not to mention perfect for day or night :)

  38. I love this skirt, and how you paired it with a button down shirt!

  39. Very nice and cleverly done. A pair of tights (or hold-ups) would not have made much difference in weight. You just didn't think about bringing them along too, did you haha?
