One Skirt, Two Ways: A Style Remix

10:23 AM






 






Okay, so have I professed lately how much I like this skirt? No? Well here we go again.

Most people wouldn't look at a robin's egg blue midi skirt and think of it as a staple. Well I'm a weirdo and I think it is. And to prove it, I'm going to give you two different looks that I've worn this month with this skirt so you can see the diversity.

The first look I wore to work a few weeks ago, the day I decided I was going to do the Top 10 Remix (if you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my post here or the challenge creator Sarah's post here). While I don't think this would work in a law firm, I am fortunate enough to work in a business casual office where I can be creative without worry. The whole look was inspired by Ginger Rogers and the musical films of the 1950's--swing skirts, crisp tied shirts, and low heels. I guess I inspired the same attitude in others since my co-worker asked me to twirl for her when I got to the office. I love this simple white button-down I got from Old Navy a little over a year ago with navy polka dots to keep with the blue color scheme. Simple nude heels and I was done, out the door, and ready to dance for my dinner (literally and metaphorically).

The second look I wore to the farmer's market last Sunday and to take a drive to Trader Joe's. There's no way in hell you're getting me to wear heels to the farmer's market, because that would just be weird. So instead I decided to go bold and wear gladiator sandals like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. I paired it with a tied tank top and denim jacket (again, in blue-I'm apparently all about blue this month!). The whole look was informal, comfortable, and perfect for strolling through the stands to pick out my cheese and spring greens.

Total cost:

Look #1:
Old Navy button down: $15 (1 1/2 years ago)
Skirt: FREE from swap meet
Nine West nude pumps: $30 from Marshall's (2 years ago)

TOTAL COST: $45

Look #2:
Old Navy tank top: 2/$12--$6 (a year ago)
Target denim jacket: $16 (January 2015)
Skirt: FREE from swap meet
Sandals: $10(?) from Ross (3-4 years ago)

TOTAL COST: $26
