I haven't been shopping in a while, but I was able to justify my purchases for two reasons. One, it was for work. And two, I still had the gift card my seester gave me for my birthday. I only got three things and two of those three were primarily for work. Boring, right? WRONG! Okay, so the work pants weren't the most exciting, but they were "elegant red" and I couldn't pass them up.
Today I ditched the standard "professional" look, but still didn't opt for jeans. I was feeling more than confident in my new dark heather gray maxi skirt from Victoria's Secret, new StyleMint Lincoln T in Royal Blue, and my black Isaac Mizrahi for Target booties. With my hair in a low side ponytail, I grabbed a few accessories and headed out the door...I was really quite pleased with the final product. I wish I had a complete head-to-toe photo, but these choppy ones will just have to do!
It's so much fun to switch it up a bit from the daily denim. I'm fairly certain I haven't worn a maxi skirt since jr. high when it probably wasn't "cool" to do so, but I was just feeling the vibe with this one. Not to mention that I was told that my "ass looks great" in it. Seriously. Not a bad way to start a Tuesday.
