Top: LOFT | Skirt: LOFT | Bag: Latico | Shoes: Nine West | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Some days are longer than others and it's nice when your outfit lasts as long as you do. On this day I got to work at 7am, left early for a doctor's appointment, stopped by Union Market in DC to visit the Dagne Dover pop-up shop and meet the CEO of Dagne Dover, Melissa Mash. Got home, had enough time to brush my teeth and put down my laptop bag and we were off to a rehearsal for a wedding Karl was shooting the next day. Karl took this photo after the rehearsal and it's clear Emerson and I both were spent, though my outfit still looks relatively fresh. This skirt and top looks like a dress when put together, but the skirt is cute on its own with a colorful tank or tee and I wore the top with wide-leg white linen pants and flat sandals and liked the effect. It's funny when this set arrived in the mail I thought I looked like a circus tent in it. I bagged it up to return but tried it on before I returned it one more time and fell for it. The skirt is elastic and drawstring, unlined, and doesn't cling in humidity. The only thing missing is pockets!
I bought this bag two years ago from MYHABIT (just seen on the blog yesterday) and it's a great bag for long days – not heavy, small and flat enough to be a comfortable crossbody but big enough to hold my everyday wallet, sunglasses case, and even my planner. I like how Latico bags don't have trendy details or logos, making them bags you can wear with style for years to come.
It’s funny how you were going to send that one back! I love it and thought it was a dress. Emerson is too cute in her outfit!!
Wow, I would have thought that was a dress if you had not mentioned it was separates. Very nice outfit and with the added bonus of still looking fresh at the end of the day, it’s a win-win. Emerson’s got her own great style too!
That last picture is so darn cute! I would have never guessed that was a shirt/skirt combo. It makes one very pretty/flattering dress.
