Dressing Up / Dressing Down

09.23.14

While the obvious choice would have been to wear wedges or heels with a pencil skirt, I opted to make the outfit a bit more casual by pairing it with low profile white sneakers. I think it works here because I tied in the white with my top, otherwise it can look like the cliché “walking to work so I threw on my sneakers until I get to the office” look. (Not saying that’s all bad!)

Since I was heading out to the SoCal Bloggers Brunch, I wanted to throw in some fun accessories like this fabulous necklace (that I doubled) from lia sophia’s fall collection and my favorite Michael Kors ‘Selma’ handbag in navy. *If you are going to invest in a handbag, make it one that is classic & will never go out of style!

I am usually a jeans girl so when I found this skirt and it was stretchy I knew I had to have it. Not only does it look great casual but now try dressing it up a little. I have worn it with a dark wash chambray and wedges to a business meeting.  Then take is up a level and throw on a black silk top or a print top tucked in and your favorite heels and you are ready for a night out.   Keep watching for more looks with this skirt and how you can dress it up or down.
