Yesterday I wore an INC black turtleneck from Macy's, yellow skinny belt from my Target dress, and a yellow and black chevron stripe midi from ASOS. The skirt is stretchy and A-line and feels very feminine. Just for matchy matchy fun, I also added my chevron stripe Fossil satchel and Missoni for Target striped black pumps. Got lots of compliments and felt great in the outfit. I am seeing now looking at the pics that the outline of the waistband of the skirt is showing underneath the thin turtleneck, but it wasn't noticeable to me yesterday, hopefully it doesn't look too bad. I was in a hurry and ran out the door without a jacket on--I think next time I might try it with my cognac leather jacket.
Yesterday when I walked over to the hospital to get some lunch at the cafeteria, I saw this striking black and white printed skirt on a mannequin outside the hospital gift shop. I went in and tried it on and it looked great with the black turtleneck, so I bought it and repeated the turtleneck today with my new skirt! LOL about leaving no retail stone unturned--never thought I'd be buying clothes at the hospital gift shop! (Now what am I going to do today when I walk past that gift shop and I have that same skirt on--haha!)
It's a skirt by Soybu, which apparently is a Denver-based company that specializes in eco-made clothes. It looks like they have a bunch of active clothes that would be good for yoga or workouts or MOTG or travel.
This skirt is called Wanderlust, and it is made of cotton chamoix and has a stretchy elastic waist and is so soft--it would be great for packing since it seems very wrinkle resistant. This pattern feels sort of Kate Spade-ish (I am drooling over her black and white floral patterned skirts and dresses out right now!) but is a lot cheaper--only $45! Score!
This particular skirt is sold at Sports Authority as well (looks like they carry a lot of their clothes):
I actually went with the size L because that way it would fall to a midi length on me and I prefer that length--the M was above the knee. (And if you wanted it shorter, you could always fold over the elastic waist). I like having some elastic waist skirts because they are so comfy and you can still wear them even if you gain a little weight at times! I could probably even wear these as maternity skirts if I ever needed to!
I wore my skinny red bow belt, structured red snakeskin handbag from White House Black Market, red Clark T strap pumps and my Anthro red corset trench (pic from the back is not that flattering because I'm twisted around to take the pic, but you get the idea). I really love the black/white/red combo and always have. Back to my usual ladylike me and feeling comfy and stylish at the same time!
