Metallic Mini Skirt + Animal Print Cardigan

by dietingfashions on January 28, 2012


Top: J. Crew Print Cardigan
Botton: Ann Taylor Metallic Jacquard Skirt
Shoes: Naturalizer Bates Booties
Belt: Faux Leather Wrap Belt (old)

I rarely wear skirts. I normally wear jeans, pants/leggings, then dresses with leggings and finally skirts. I had this discussion with a friend. Skirts are not “Mom friendly.” Many skirts do not have pockets so I can stick tissue for those runny noses or whatever hair clips, rubber bands, or random “artifact” the kids pick up.

That being said, this pocketless outfit was inspired from a random perusal of my closet. I wanted to put together an outfit beyond my normal comfort level. I still don’t know if I like the skirt. I love the material. The glittery metallic fabric is very different from plain jane office looks. I also like that it’s a good length for me. Not too short, not too long.

The problem is would I wear it more often?

Under $50 ~ Wear To Work Outfit

by dietingfashions on November 3, 2011

Entire Outfit from Target

Top: Scoop Neck Embellished Tee by Merona – $14.99 – SALE $7.48
Skirt: Doubleweave Floral Skirt by Merona – $22.99
Shoes: Mandana T Strap Heels by Merona – $12.48

Total Head to Toe look = $42.95

This is a casual yet work appropriate outfit. I really like the beading detail on the tee. It gives a basic tee the right amount of sparkle and ups the dress the factor. The skirt is very comfortable and form fitting. The shoes are beautiful strappy pumps that are cushy and only for $12.48!

Altogether this outfit cost me $42.95 at Target.com. It is an unbelievable deal that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.

Is this a good $50 Outfit for work?
