One Skirt, Two Ways

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post on how to wear one item multiple ways, so I’m bringing it back by showing you how to switch up a chambray skirt (last seen here, looking quite patriotic on the 4th of July).

Before I begin, here’s my tip of the day: an upshot photo of an already shortish skirt makes said skirt appear much shorter than it already was. Unless you’re looking to show off the goods, I’d keep it at ground level.

And here’s a bonus tip: It would appear that other mothers visiting the park think it’s very sweet that you’ve brought your camera with you, until they realize that your child is actually taking YOUR picture. And when they see you’ve brought an outfit change, the eyebrows REALLY get raised. Keep this in mind when planning your next photo shoot.A basic white tee gets a super charge with some Wild Ruffle chain link necklaces and silver caged earrings, paired with sky high faux snakeskin platforms from BCBG.

A quick change into a Merona button down, silver JCrew loafers, and a necklace of my mom’s circa mid-1980s makes this look a bit more casual (and perhaps a little more appropriate for chasing the kiddos around).

My mom’s closet is chock full of great stuff, just waiting for me to wear them. How could I resist this one?

    House Tour – Kids’ Bath
  • Sometimes feeling fancy just means wearing a tulle dress on an ordinary day. Wake up feeling ordinary; feed the dogs and the kids, still feeling ordinary; race into Zumba at the last possible second, totally ordinary occurrence for me; shower and get ready for an ordinary day of errands with the kiddos.  Ordinary. Ordinary. Ordinary.… [Continue Reading]

    What’s Under Your Skirt?
  • After nearly 7 years in our house, we are getting neighbors. This past fall, two new houses went up on our street. I was happy about it. After all, the lot next to me, and the one behind me were still empty. I still had my unobstructed view of the trees, and tons of privacy… [Continue Reading]

I’ve gotta give you a big virtual high five for changing outfits at the park! You’ve got a job to do and your gonna do it :) And thank you so much for showing different ways to wear the same item! :)
