Summer is HERE and now it’s time to adult. As lots of us are heading off to work or internships, I thought I’d share one of my favorite business casual skirt. I’ve got a pretty tiny waist so it’s hard for me to find shorts and skirts that fit. For a while I was literally wearing kids shorts with an elastic waist. Embarrassing, I know. And honestly, I’d still be in ’em if J. Crew hadn’t started making 000s. But, at least for skirts, I was able to trade up for the Sidewalk Skirt and its wonderful elastic waistband. And it’s on sale right now for only $30! They come in linen and wool, and I have them in literally every color. They’re perfect for dressing up or down and a lifesaver because I don’t have to get them tailored! Oh, and they’re the perfect length AND have pockets!
I picked up these shoes from Nordstrom last year and while they’re a little more girly and trendy than what I usually go for – I absolutely love them. These babies carried me all around Spain last summer and they’re still looking great! They also add a feminine touch to my usually plain attire, though I’m starting to deviate from that! And, for the most part, the ties stay up on my legs.
I literally went from 0 to 100 with my earrings this spring and I’m kinda loving it. For years (and years and years) I never took out my pearls, but I took a chance on some wild Sugarfix (by Baublebar for Target) earrings and haven’t looked back since. The one problem? I always forget to take them out before CrossFit and look mildly crazy while working out.
In other news, I am two papers away from being free for the summer. I can’t wait to head back home, see my family, and start my internship!
