Now that below freezing temperatures are a thing of past, it’s time to bring out some spring and summer pieces from the depths of my wardrobe. This black pleated skirt from Banana Republic is one of those. It’s lightweight and perfect for these warm spring days. One of the skirt’s major attributes is that it translates quite well into an evening look. Add a little extra color or bling and you’re ready for drinks with friends!
This skirt can pose a small risk: you never know when a breeze might come through and *whooops!* your skirt just did a little flip. I saw this happen to a girl crossing Park Ave on a particularly windy autumn morning and just felt so embarrassed for her – I wanted to rush over and quietly commiserate! Luckily (or unluckily?) for her, she had no clue that her cute skirt was doing backflips behind her, so no commiserating was necessary.
This is my favorite ring! Besides having good memories tied to it, I’m always receiving compliments for its great color and size. I really enjoy its simple focus on the turquoise stone – no need to get fancy with frivilous silverwork. Sidenote: black nail polish? What do we think??
Final point: this short-sleeved blazer is such a versatile piece. Perhaps too versatile (if that’s possible.) Most mornings I want to wear it, but then remember that I wore it the day before! Since it is a short blazer, it works especially well with high waisted skirts and pants. Best of all, it was an inexpensive H&M purchase! I wish that I had been smart enough to pick one up in black when I bought this last spring.
Happy Friday to you all! Enjoy the weekend! Saturday is looking promising with sunshine and a high of 70!
