Running VERY late this morning, which makes me all the happier that I am slowly building back a simple wardrobe of mix and match basics. Got dressed in five minutes and look work-appropriate. Even if I had to meet with clients today, I wouldn’t be embarrassed. Yay!
And speaking of the wardrobe, this is the denim pencil skirt I mentioned before. This is the size 14 petite. It’s a tad big, but I tried the 12 petite in the store and it was too tight. And you can tell this skirt runs long, a non-petite version would look ridiculous on me. But I love this skirt as much as I thought I would – the seaming is so flattering – it doesn’t cling to my butt, but it skims curves so I don’t look like a tube or a sausage. The denim is the perfect weight – has some stretch, but keeps its shape all day long. It’s a side zip and no pockets so the fit is smooth and classic. Totally love it and it is worth the price – this puts to shame all the denim skirts from LOFT, Gap, Old Navy, Macy’s and all the other places I have looked over the past year!
And because I haven’t posted a picture of Emerson lately, this is Emerson’s outfit today – romper from Gap, shoes from Pediped. Check out those legs, she is surely her father’s daughter!
