Outfit 24 of 30: Ruffles and Roses

One of things I wanted to incorporate more into my daily wear was skirts.  It’s not like I don’t love wearing skirts, especially to work.  Nothing can make you feel more girly (or scream I am woman so I mean business!).  But when I wear a skirt, I can’t just wear it with anything and it isn’t something I can just throw on.  I have to get the right top, the right accessories, and I always feel that I have to get especially dolled up to do my skirt justice.  All that requires extra time in the morning, which I don’t always have.  And oh, I also have to make sure I have pantyhose.

No, you didn’t read that wrong.  I’m old school and I like pantyhose!  I came up during the days when they were still cool and besides, I hate having cold legs when I’m in my AC-blasting office and I don’t like the feeling of wearing closed shoes without something on my feet. (Yeah, I am weird that way!).

Anywho, I invested in more pantyhose and I’m already getting used to getting up a little earlier to fit in these challenge pics so there isn’t any excuse why I can’t get more skirts in my fashion diet? Right?  🙂

  1. Great outfit – I love the mix of pinstripes and floral embroidery in that skirt. It gives it just that perfect amount of femininity!

    I need to add more skirts to my wardrobe. Much of what you said above applies to me as well – I cant just wear a skirt on a whim – I have to plan those outfits out in advance, and I generally hate to do that! I have reverted to wearing mine with tights instead of pantyhose, but I still have a few pairs of those lying around as well!! 🙂

      Thank you!

      I need to stop being lazy and put some real thought into my outfits. That’s one thing this challenge is forcing me to do! I wish I could wear tights but down here in FL I would seriously melt!

  2. Very cute skirt – love the mix of girly embroidery over masculine pinstripes
