Burgundy Argyle Skirt

Although we are about two weeks into this Spring season many of us here in Philadelphia have learned to keep those sweaters and coats handy. It’s good to be prepared just in case a snow storm should come our way just in time for Easter. March and April are always wild card months in the Delaware Valley. By the time we reach May we’ve gone from bitter cold, to cool, to summer heatwave…all in the span of eight weeks.

As a result, I’ve decided to slowly transition into spring by pairing some of my heavier winter pieces with lighter fabrics. My anemia prohibits me from going bare legged this early but pretty soon the tights and stockings will be put away in favor of open toe shoes and ballet flats.

Today’s look is entirely centered around this beautiful argyle sweater skirt. Similar to the green one I wore a while back, this pencil skirt fits like a glove while being totally comfy. The sweater material is super soft and the bubble gum pink looks amazing in contrast with the burgundy and black.

I decided to pair it with a matching quarter sleeve sweater and keep the footwear simple with black stilettos. I added dainty pink jewelry with my staple rose gold pieces for an extra feminine touch. I promise you that I can wear this outfit all day without feeling restricted or stiff. Chic and comfortable is always a win in my book. Here’s to the start of a new season and the beginning of an awesome week, XO!

Green Argyle Skirt

Happy Hump Day beautiful people! Is anyone else still have vacation brain at the office? I honestly could’ve taken Tuesday off just to mentally prepare myself to go back to work. Well, such is life; besides, bills don’t pay themselves. I pray you’ve all had a great holiday with those you love.

I’m proud of myself for sticking to my decision to skip the gift giving this Christmas. I certainly felt like a Scrouge at first, but it was a necessary form of financial self care. Instead I focused on acts of service toward those around me.

Now that the holidays are over it’s back to the daily grind. Since this is the first outfit post of the new year I figured I’d go for a little color. The only thing I love more than the soft feel of this midi sweater skirt is the preppy argyle print. I saw this skirt back in November and had to snag myself two of them. I am always leary of midi length skirts and dresses due to my petite stature. However, this was a worthy exception.

In order to keep the focus on the skirt I decided to pair it with a simple white tee and black cardigan. Instead of a simple pendant I opted for this chunky statment necklace, which I rarely wear. Next, I added patent accessories to add dimension to the entire look.

I wore this skirt to church and I lie to you not, it was more comfortable than my favorite jeans. I love a good skirt and this baby will surely become one of my wardrobe favs!
