Dec 6th, Three for Thursday

Good morning! It’s Thursday, so that means another Three for Thursday- where I show you 1 item worn 3 ways. Today I’m showing a black pencil skirt worn 3 ways.

DSCN6200A pencil skirt is often on people’s lists as a ‘must have’ item- yet I’ve realized I rarely wear mine- so today I challenged myself to find 3 ways to wear it.

My first way is a casual, everyday mom look. By pairing the skirt with a white waffle t shirt and a denim shirt I have made it very casual. The high knee socks and boots also add to the casual vibe.

You could wear this volunteering at school, running errands, meeting friends for coffee… whatever. Don’t be afraid to wear a dress or skirt during the day. I used to worry people would think I was too dressed up- but actually people always just comment on how nice I look.

My next look is for the office. Here I have chosen an open weave sweater layered over a tank. I’ve opted for my snakeskin heels to add another pattern- as well as interest.

Lastly, this is my night out look. I always envy gals who are out in spaghetti strap tops in the middle of winter. Don’t they freeze to death? Probably, but it looks fabulous! Actually, if you have a great coat- wear that- and then hope that wherever you are going is nice and warm. Usually in a crowded party I end up getting so hot that I’m thankful for the summery top.

Feb 5th, Date Night

Rather than show you what I’m  wearing for the Super Bowl (which is jeans and a comfy top- with plenty of room to hide my food baby), I’ve decided to show another date night outfit.

I want to show that you can look classy and sexy at the same time.

I actually wore this outfit a few years ago at my high school reunion (20 years, gasp!)- and liked it so much, I thought I’d show it today.

This top is a perfect date night top. I love the gold shimmery color and love the  blousy style- perfect for anyone who wants to hide their tummy!

Paired with these dark jeans and heels- it is totally appropriate for any age!

Just remember, you don’t have to show a ton of skin- leave something to the imagination!

It's ok to show a little skin- but don't do a skimpy top AND skimpy bottom.
