I’m finally all caught up on work stuff and have a new Wear This to kick off the week. Did you have a good weekend by the way? Anybody watch the Super Bowl?
Sarah was kind enough to take photographs for me once again (I wish I could work with her on absolutely everything – she is so awesome) and we ended up shooting across the street from a local restaurant. Naturally, that meant that there were some people walking by while I was doing weird dance moves, strange jumps, and fake running.
Totally normal, right? It was…very interesting.
I feel like I should probably mention that it’s not everyday that I wear a skirt (or tights for that matter). Let’s face it, I’m not that fancy nine times out of ten. BUT I would totally wear this outfit to a business meeting. It’s super comfortable, but not too casual – which in my mind, is the perfect combo for something like that.
Top // Fossil (similar)
Skirt // TJ Maxx
Tights // Target (similar)
Shoes // Carlos by Carlos Santana
Bag // Marc by Marc Jacobs
Necklace // Moorea Seal
All photography by Sarah Eddy.
P.S. Thank you so much for all the sweet comments and tweets on the first installment of Wear This. It’s always a little bit scary trying something new, even something as frivolous as a new blog column. But you guys made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Thank you! You are awesome.

I loveee that shirt! And I love the colors you paired it with, never would have thought of it but it looks so great! Also, I envy your jumping dance moves. I get about 1 inch off the ground when I attempt a jump. 😉Kelly @ Studio DIY

Aw, thanks Lauren. It was so good to see you at Alt.papernstitch
your dance moves are everything. Love your outfit too;)Lauren
Thanks Annie. I know what you mean…I don’t really wear skirts on a casual basis either (unless I haven’t done laundry in a while). The boots and colorful tights make it a little less fancy though. Kind of balances it out. Thanks for stopping by.papernstitch
I have yet to start wearing skirts on a “casual” basis. You look fabulous!Annie
