OOTD: Midi Skirt in a Marble Hall

Whenever I’m in the mood to feel ladylike and demure, I pull out a midi skirt and play around with it until I have an outfit that feels a little fresh and a little retro. When I start saying things like, “Oh dear!” and “Hello-o-o DAH-ling…” I know I’ve got a winning combo. lol.

This time, I chose a soft watercolored top with a draped neckline…added a belt, a string of pearls and some closed-toe pumps, and I was ready for my lunch date at 311 W Wacker (the only building in the world known only by its address). This building has an amazing airy atrium with marble columns, palm trees, and an impressive fountain!

Watercolored me!! πŸ™‚

What do you wear when you want to feel like a lady??

Outfit of the Day: Ladylike in Lace

I don’t know what it is, but I’m feeling very ladylike lately. Is it the influence of Mad Men fashions that have made me obsessed over longer skirt lengths and tops that conceal and reveal at the same time? Well, anyway, today I pulled out this brown lace skirt that I bought from Old Navy like 4 years ago (have I mentioned that I keep everything even if I don’t wear it for a while??). Instead of pairing it with cream (like I did when I first bought the skirt), I decided to add some pops of color to liven things up.

This purple shirt is just a tad sheer, but is still appropriate enough to wear to the office (at least I thought it was). I went with a wildcard pairing of magenta suede heels…but it still felt somewhat boring until I added this yellow fabric flower to the belt. It definitely added some zing to the outfit…and drew attention away from my un-makeup-ed (I just invented that word) face and blah hairdo. πŸ™‚

What do you think?

For some reason, I felt the need to curtsy. I don’t think we curtsy enough in modern society. lol

I carried my trusty yellow Coach purse and it set off the yellow flower perfectly!

The top is sheer…but tastefully so. 

I was running extremely late this morning, so I went sans makeup and wore very little jewelry. Sometimes you just let the outfit speak for itself, ya know?

Outfit Rundown:
Brown lace skirt: Old Navy (practically vintage)
Purple sheer shirt: Forever 21+
Magenta suede heels: Apostrophe by way of Sears (ages ago)
Yellow rose accessory: H&M
Purse: Coach

I hope you are all having a lovely, ladylike day, my beauties!

Outfit of the Day: My First Midi

Have you tried out the new “midi” length skirt? It’s not a maxi, not a mini…it’s a midi. One of my friends pointed out that it’s actually just plain tea-length, lol. But fashion is all about repackaging the past, right? πŸ™‚

Anyway, I bought my first midi skirt about a month ago at H&M, but it took me a while to find the right top to pair with it. With such a full bottom, tops that were loose or had any extra fabric just overwhelmed the whole look. It’s a very ladylike, almost dressy skirt, so just a plain T-shirt looked too plain. Finally, I pulled this top out of the bottom of my closet and tried it on a whim. I think it worked well! With this neckline and the midi length, full skirt, I’m rocking a very 40s/50s look. Also, the print of the top helps balance the outfit. You can’t see my hair, but I went with a side chignon…another classic, ladylike look. What do you think?

I don’t know what kind of neckline this technically is, but it is the most flattering I’ve found for  my shape.  

Don’t be afraid to tuck in your shirts with this type of skirt. I was apprehensive at first, but it creates a much slimmer line.

Silly…but it had to be done. My friend Wendy (who took all of these pics) made me do it! Thanks, doll!!!

This skirt was made for twirling!

So, I guess I’m a fan of the midi skirt. I will definitely try to find more things to pair it with when fall comes in earnest. This particular one is quite sheer…even with its many layers…so first thing on my list is to buy another slip!

Skirt: H&M (Yes, really. A straight sized store actually had something I can fit into!)
Shirt: Ashley Stewart
Belt: Dots
Shoes: Dressbarn
Jewelry: Forever 21

Have you tried the midi skirt yet?? What did you wear with it?
