Full skirts are a fun spring and summer item. I spotted this style on Pinterest and just fell in love with the classic elegance. The photo convinced me that I needed to show a fuller skirt.
For Casual Monday. If you have a relaxed workday, but still need to be dressed nicely, this is a wonderful outfit. It’s classic, like something Grace Kelly would wear in an old movie. I also love the combination of navy with bright green. Plus-size? Try this purple skirt from Eloquii.
I chose this sweater from J.Crew Factory, but on second look, it might be a bit a sheer. This Brooks Brothers sweater is another good option. And if you’re not feeling solid navy, a striped sweater could also be a lot of fun.
I added the navy and gold necklace for a bit of sparkle that also adds balance to the outfit. If you prefer solid navy, try this under-$25 Fornash navy bead necklace.
This sleek Aldo satchel is a lovely bag. And how adorable is this slingback flat? It brings a great lightness to an office-appropriate shoe. I also like these J. Renee flats with a bow on the strap.
For the Weekend. I love the look of a button-up shirt tied at the waist. It’s fun and playful. The perfect way to lighten up a button-up blouse.
I added the hoop earrings because they’re a little dramatic without being too heavy. If you want a smaller pair, try this pair from Argentovivo.
The look is finished up with a pair of nude sandals and a navy cross body bag. It’s relaxed and simple for the weekend. If you’re looking for a less expensive bag in navy, try this Old Navy bag.
