The Skirt: A Cure For The Common Day

Think about your most drab, casual, errand-running outfit...  Now replace the bottoms with a skirt.  

Better, right?

top: Zara / skirt: The Tiny Closet / flats: Breckell's / earrings: Tory Burch / bag: Banana Republic

A skirt is perfect for upscaling my tendency to dress too casually in my day to day life.  When I made this one in particular, I'd planned for it to be a chic, fashionable item to run errands in.  Just a casual day skirt that I could pop on with any of my tees and go.  But I hadn't guessed just how much of an upgrade it would be!  


Skirts are one of the most versatile articles of clothing 
a woman can own. 

But until now, I'd never really paid attention to what an aid they are when I've got more important things to think about than trying to look presentable before running off to Costco and then to the bank. 


So on those days when I find myself in a ragged tee, frumpy cutoffs and Chucks, I'll promptly kick off the cutoffs, pull on a skirt, smile and go!

  4. Easily the chicest outfit I've ever seen at a Costco : ) I didn't think cheetah print shoes would ever look good with such a bold skirt, but I'm sold!

  14. such a great idea. I'm thinking now of the millions times I've thrown on a shirt-and-jeans, when putting on a skirt as the bottom instead would've been just as easy, but would've made me feel much cuter as I went about my day.
