I blame #Shoesday. This was the post the started it all – I linked this adorable skirt and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I kept imaging all the ways I could wear it … so, today I’m sharing them all with you. One Skirt, Five Looks (at least five … there may be a few others thrown in for good measure.) #MoneysWorth
When I saw this skirt, I thought “perfect little transition skirt”. Little did I know I would really get to test that out. I wore it for the first day of spring, but in Virginia that involved snow and cold. So it was styled with a turtleneck and my Stuart Weitzman 5050s that I literally had to retrieve from the attic. (I guess I got a little optimistic about that whole Spring thing).
Here was its debut look:
Decidedly not the spring look I was going for. This was more what I had in mind …
My Five Looks
I didn’t let the snow get me down though. I used my recent snow day as an opportunity to create five looks to share with you to highlight the versatility of this skirt! #LuckyYou I used pieces I had in my closet for all of the looks so I had to find currently available equivalents. #StillGood
The first look is the original inspiration. I was able to wear my suit jacket with the skirt and there was no weird mismatch with the pockets but I did tie the tie in the back when I had my jacket on to keep the lines cleaner. The top also comes in a halter version which is equally adorable. I paired the outfit with my new J.Crew loafers but apparently didn’t frame the picture very well. #Sorry
I think the second look is my favorite … maybe. I love not only mixing patterns but colors. Mix complimentary colors – like the green I chose – rather than colors that clash. Here is another green option similar to mine (you must like ruffles though) and a Floral Blouse that is more subtle with the green. My bow shoes are from Zara (these are the ones I really want), but I found a suitable alternative from Nordstrom.
For look three I ditched all things floral and opted for monotone with a little edge. I love the mix of all the tones and the rose gold pumps (which I am always looking for an excuse to wear). Finding an exact replica of my jacket was challenging so I gave you two options … one a little more corporate and one a little more edge. I also added a ballet flat for those anti-heel! There is a shop-able widget at the end with tons of Rose Gold shoes because these aren’t the only one you will see in my looks. Nor are they the only ones in my closet. #Obsessed #Trending
This is my transitional look. I was forced to wear longer sleeves and boots for my transition but ideally you could wear short sleeves and pumps! For this look, I tucked the tie to keep the lines sleeker. You could also tie it in the back. #Versatile
For my casual look I paired the skirt with a white T-shirt (mine is from Target – similar here) and my Paul Green rose gold loafers but you could also use simple tennis shoes like these. If you need another layer opt for a denim jacket and definitely keep your purse fun!
Rose Gold Shoes
I love my rose gold shoes and wear them frequently. I actually have two other pairs …. and probably a problem. Here are tons more choices in heels, sandals, loafers, flats and any other shape you could possibly imagine. I had to stop myself at 30. #DefinitelyHaveAProblem
