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. LOVE this. Reminds me of Thom Browne/black fleece

    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 = )
