Casual Clothes Mini Challenge: Skirt with a Loose Top

Happy Wednesday! How was your weekend? Mine was nice. We spent it celebrating my twins’ graduation from high school. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the actual graduation because I was crying and they all turned into a blur. Funny, right?

Anyway, this is Casual Style Formula 5 of Sylvia’s Casual Style Mini Challenge: a skirt with a loose top. This is an easy style option because it allows me to cover my middle {which is my trouble spot} and still look cute and put together. Furthermore, this is probably one of the easiest looks for work and play. I’ve put together a Pinterest board of looks following Sylvia’s style formulas, you can check it out here.

I wore this to work yesterday, thinking that I’d be sitting behind my desk all day, instead I ended up spending the day following electricians and construction workers. Being a librarian isn’t all about the books, y’all. Notice the ever present cardi and flats? Because I like to be both stylish and practical ~ libraries are cooooold!

I rarely focus on my accessories, but seriously, how cute are those earrings and charm bracelet? They were handmade for me by the fabulous Claire at Sloan + Themis. And that camera necklace? Can you think of anything more precious? Or fun?

I’m definitely more of a skirt girl than I am a dress or pants chick. You can see how I style a floral skirt with a graphic tee by clicking here, with mustard as a neutral  by clicking here, and with muted bolds by clicking here.

What is your go to casual outfit? Do you prefer skirts? Dresses? How about pants or shorts?
