Midi Skirt

I’m not big on trends and usually try to stick to the classics.  By now, most of you may know that my go to favorite type of skirts are pencil style.  However, I’ve recently been really drawn to try something new, the midi skirt.  I was a bit hesitant since I’m only 5’3 and felt a bit too short for this trend, but I decided to give it a shot after seeing fellow bloggers pulling off this style and also finding one online for the reasonable price of $20. With this being my first time wearing the midi skirt, I wanted to keep all the colors neutral for a simple look.  In fact, several of my co-workers thought I was actually wearing a dress.  I’m still looking for new ways to wear this skirt so if you have any ideas please send them my way.

So Comfy…

I could practically live in these comfy harem pants my mother in law gave me during our trip to Florida.  I probably wouldn’t have picked them out for myself thinking they wouldn’t be too flattering, but I was mistaken. I wore them during our trip on one of our nightly outings and I’ve also been able to dress them up for work.  The neutral leopard print makes them easy to match and pair with any color.  I hope this trendy style doesn’t go out of style any time soon.

Navy, Mint and a dash of leopard...

Ever Since I was a little girl, yellow has always been my favorite color. In the past few years though I’ve become very fond of the color mint.  I’ve mentioned in previous posts how versatile this color is and how well it blends into all the seasons.   I have several mint color tops and a pair of skinny corduroy jeans that fit me a little too loose. The one item I felt I was missing was my all-time favorite “pencil skirt.” So when JCrew came out with this perfect little number, I stalked it until it went on sale, and finally when it became a clearance item with an additional 40% off.   Let me just tell you I scored big time. I paid a fraction of the original price and I’m completely in love with the fabric and fit.  This beautiful skirt was definitely worth the wait.

On another note, how perfect does this beautiful blouse match this skirt? My best friend from Miami,  Maydivi, gave it to me as a gift during our trip to Florida this past summer.

Peplum and Leopard Print

I feel like some styles quickly come and go in the fashion industry, but fortunately peplum tops have stuck around.  The feminine silhouette hides little imperfections and can be worn with any bottom and for any different occasion.   Last week when the temperatures were still in the mid 80’s I decided to pair my classic black peplum top with a leopard print pencil skirt.

Summer please don’t go…


I’ve noticed lots of fellow bloggers rocking some fabulous fall looks, but here I am holding on to summer as much as possible.  The weather transition in Virginia is quite moderate and very pleasant. You can definitely wear your silky tops without having to worry about getting some icky sweat stains. I do have some cute layering outfit ideas in the woodworks, but for now I’m just going to keep wearing my pencil skirts and enjoy the perfect weather.

Made up jumpsuit

I’ve wanted to purchase a trendy jumpsuit for quite a while but felt like most of them were a bit more for going out rather than being office appropriate.  I was thrilled when I found these pants at Target in the clearance section especially since I knew right away I would be able to pair them with this navy silky top I scored at Plato’s closet for only $5.00 brand new! I added the gold belt and this two piece outfit became an instantaneous chic jumpsuit for the office.

Are you ready for some Football?

This week kicks off another great NFL Football season.  Even though I don’t always get to watch the entire game on TV,  I still love to show support for my favorite football team, the Washington Redskins.  My wonderful mother in law gifted me my first jersey and I wanted to add a touch of class by pairing it with a pencil skirt and leopard print shoes for a perfect office appropriate outfit. 

How will you be representing your favorite team this season?
