30for30 Day 6

| 3 Comments

Does this outfit look challenging? It really was. I love the shape of this skirt, but it has two major flaws: first, it's too big around the waist, even though it's a size smaller than I typically take these days, and secondly, it's brown. I just don't do brown. Earth tones are my least favorite. So I'm never quite sure how to style it.

All that said, I think this worked out OK in the end. The belt helps a ton with the waist problem, and in reality, wearing it with black (which I know some people frown on!) is the only way I'm ever going to make this skirt work.

I love it! My fav. work pants are brown. I wear them with reds, pinks, purples. And today I'm wearing them with a bright cerulean blue sweater.

I love that skirt. :)

Great outfit! Love the shape and color of the skirt. The pattern and color of your cardi is pretty. I think cats know when we're taking pics for our blogs!
