{Jacket: Marc by Marc Jacobs; Top: Madewell; Skirt: Zara; Shoes: L.A.M.B.; Necklace: Alexis Bittar (similar}}


{Not actually a "court" appropriate outfit}




Making this skirt appropriate for a night out is easy; the challenge, however, is in making it "work".  Black opaque tights and a quilted jacket keeps the look streamlined without adding too much emphasis on the skirt.

I'm not a fan of traditional workwear - it tends to look dowdy, uninteresting and very much like a uniform.  I enjoy being creative with my wardrobe, mixing and matching old with new, funky with practicality, chic with color, even if on some mornings it takes me forever to figure out what to wear.  It really changes the way I approach my day when I feel good in what I'm wearing.

Hope everyone has a great week!
