going both ways.

A few days ago I had a busy day at work, doing important work-like things like attending meetings and pretending to be answering urgent emails while actually playing Words with Friends on my phone. After work -- I had a busy date night, doing things like picking up some local, free range eggs at a country farm and going out to dinner for buckets of fried seafood.

I decided to try to pull it all off with one skirt.

For the day - I wore a black blazer with the sleeves rolled up (aka: my getting down to business business look), a black tank and gold jewelry with the skirt. Along with my gold oxfords and my brown leather bag - I went for a business casual feel ... trying to portray the message, "I'm creative and fun, yet my organized flow charts will blow. you. away."

And for the night - I wanted a cool and summery casual look. So, I left the blazer crumpled up in the backseat and threw on a sheer short sleeve top, some bright earrings and a pair of flirty black vintage heels. Then, I flirted with a little hottie at the farm.

The skirt felt great all day/night long ... it was warm enough in the air conditioned office and cool enough under the warm evening sun. And the elastic waist? Did I mention the buckets of seafood? Enough said.

And the best part?? The skirt is for sale in the shoppe! (but sorry ... adorable baby goat is not included)

I loved how you remixed the skirt. It looks great both ways, but I especially like how you styled it business casual!
