happy wednesday! these “what i wore posts” are designed to keep myself accountable to getting dressed each day and to be an encouragement to those of you who struggle like me! i am all about comfort, but still want style. if you want to join me, link up your outfit posts below!
this week i’m featuring a skirt c/o deborah & co. that fulfills both requirements: comfort and style. it feel like i’m wearing comfy yoga pants, but looks like i put effort into my outfit! i challenged myself to style this skirt 4 different ways: everyday casual, sporty, date night, and warm & cozy. which is your favorite?
i’m a big fan of 2 things: stylish tennies and raglan sleeve tops. i found these gold tennies at forever 21 on clearance awhile back for just $7! and this t-shirt is among many i have found at target over the years. they have the best graphic tees for great prices. the skirt has a really comfortable waistband that is the same deep coral as the stripes, so it extends the length of the shirt.
a chambray shirt is prefect for everyday! it goes with everything. throw on a simple ribbed white tank underneath and i’m good to go! to add a bit to the simple outfit, i added my glittered sandals and a statement necklace from cookie & curly.
comfort can still work for date nights! just add a bit of sparkle and you’re good to go! the sparkly tank adds just a bit of dressiness, and black always works well for date nights. and since i get chilly on evenings out, i added the soft black cardi. strappy sandals and a dark coral beaded necklace finish it off.
even though maxi skirts are long, they seem like a summer staple to me. so i challenged myself to figure out a way to make this skirt work for winter, too. the trick? layers. lots of cozy layers. i started with a heather grey thermal, my chambray shirt, and a super cozy sweater. boots are an obvious choice for winter, and while i was at it, i added layers of necklaces as well.
besides this adorable skirt, deborah & co. also makes custom maternity skirts!
