long/short skirt

I have been on the lookout for more "office" friendly pieces lately. 

This skirt is an ideal choice for me. It is a long, polka dot skirt, with a short black skirt underneath. 

I wouldn't quite classify it as a "high low" skirt, but it is definitely not a 1990's long flowered skirt either.

love the pattern!

and the price!

I am thinking of wearing this with a white shirt, tucked in of course, and a BIG black belt.

different fabrics

I was SO excited when I found this shirt at Plato's Closet recently.

It is sooooo interesting to me, and for that reason alone, I had to have it!

The body of the shirt is silk (please notice the immense amount of wrinkles). The arms are a thin sweater material that is very soft!

I have never shopped at Zara before, but based on this shirt, I think I would like it.

I also love the simple gold button closure.

Now the question is...what to pair it with? Some skinny jeans? A big statement necklace?

color blocking

It's been a while since my last post...super crazy time, starting a new job and preparing for a friend's wedding shower.

Speaking I want to show you this AMAZING dress that I wore to the shower yesterday.

It is, of course, from Plato's Closet.

This is probably one of the best finds I have had in a LONG time!

I LOVE the v-neck and soft color pallete

The button was actually missing, so I replaced it with one of my own :-)


Here's the best part...

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend!
