In A Pinch
OMG the last few days have totally flown by. I can’t believe it’s Monday already! I’ve had such a great time in Philly seeing friends and enjoying the city! I don’t know if we ever REALLY appreciate what we have while we’re in the moment and I forgot how much I love this place. I’m off to lunch with friends before fitting in a little work and then heading back to The Bay Area tonight. I don’t have much time but I didn’t want you to think I’d forgotten about you!
I’ll show you pictures from my time here but this look is something I wore to work on a warm day in San Francisco but you could certainly wear to for a lot of other occasions. We should all have outfits that can be go to looks In A Pinch and this is one of mine. This skirt is bright and cheery and just makes you want to smile! I paired it with long sleeves due to the SF weather but if you live in a warmer climate you could choose something else. Just so you know the shirt is navy but in these pictures it almost looks black. I don’t own very much linen because it annoys me but this skirt had pockets and a good structure so it found it’s way into my closet. Some paper bag style skirts aren’t a great fit but this one was just adorable and a great price. I added the belt to give just a little more definition to the waist. I liked the pop of red in the necklace and these shoes are sooooooo comfortable!
I’m heading out to go lunch with the ladies but if I had this with me I’d totally wear it. Admittedly this is a very J.Crew ensemble but that’s part of what makes it easy. Their items are always classic but fun. What are your thoughts about this look? Do you like wearing linen clothes or paper bag skirts? Would you swap out a particular item? My camera died when Mr.T was taking these pics so we ended up having to use my iphone for these photos. Unfortunately they’re not the best quality but in a pinch you use what’s available to you right?!
