One Week, One Skirt
So, I did it.
I splurged and bought this Preen Line "Serpent" skirt that I had been crushing so hard on. It went on sale, there was a code, it was a must-buy situation.
When it arrived, I knew it was the right thing to do. The paperbag-waisted skirt is simple but has edge. The asymmetrical hem actually has a "foot hole" (I'm sure that's a term they use in fancy-pants design school), so you can get this harem pant vibe going or consider it a way to preserve your modesty, whichever is more important in your world. The other option is just to let that extra fabric drape, Grecian-like, and really exaggerate the uneven hem. Either way looks great.
Right off the rip, I thought about several very different tops that would all look smashing with the skirt.
Let's call this first look "The Bad Ass." That would be a plain ol' J Crew tank with a Current/Elliott denim biker vest, a Madewell necklace and Me Too leather sandals.
And let me just add that I am so happy I took all these photos pre-trip to Kansas City, MO. I came home with three extra pounds of baggage, all on my midsection, thanks to the good barbecue.
