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?

  • On the Eve of Thanksgiving this year, I’m feeling lots of love and gratitude toward my family, friends and you {Wild Ruffle Readers}! My life has been crazy chaos lately.  Starting way back last summer, this fall, and even up through last weekend. I’ve been running like my head’s cut off. Which you have so graciously read… [Continue Reading]

    Feeling Thankful
  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert. Not growing up a country music fan, I wondered if I would know any of the songs, and whether I’d really enjoy myself at the show. I gotta say – I truly did have fun. Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]

    Be Of Good Cheer
  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]

  8. Omgosh your story was hilarious! My neighbors think I’m a little strange because my daughter takes my pictures sometimes as well. 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! :)
