Shashay all Day

Blazer | Theory
Sweater | J. Crew
Skirt | Alyssa Nicole
Today, I have one more look at an Alyssa Nicole piece I bought at the Femme Fair (read about it here), this amazing skirt. I was initially a little hesitant because I thought it was too fancy for work (and since I don't have an elegant enough social life, all my purchases are made with work in mind), but I was talked into it by some fellow fair attendees and I'm so glad I purchased it. It is a trumpet skirt in a shimmery white fabric, a little bit corporate and, due to the color and glittery material, a little bit bridal. (I badly want to wear it with a metallic tank that I have, but need to find the right occasion).  
The flare in the skirt is pretty dramatic, but since it fits so well, and I kept the rest of the look very streamlined, the volume didn't overwhelm me. I decided to double down on the bridal element, by pairing the skirt with a cream colored sweater, which also has a little jeweled element. Then, to try to drag myself back toward the corporate end of the spectrum, I added a tailored black blazer. I was pretty pleased with the end result - maybe I should be fancy more often.
This skirt makes me want to sashay. 
Do you incorporate fancier dress pieces into your everyday wardrobe? If so, what sort of pieces? 


  1. I love that you said that, haha, I love Thom Browne!
    Also, it reminded me of this article from last month in the NYT, on if Thom Browne is the most underestimated designer in NY: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/22/fashion/thom-browne-the-most-underestimated-designer-in-new-york.html?_r=0

  2. Such a pretty shirt! Love the subtle shimmery effect. Can't wait to see you wear it with that metallic tank you were mentioning :)


    1. Thanks! Maybe I'll just go for it and wear it to work = )
