Today was supposed to be the last installment in my How to Wear a Denim Maxi Skirt series but… I’ve been working with sick family members for a few days and now I’m sick. Some weird stomach thing that doesn’t have the decency to know when it’s no longer welcome. So I had to go through my “stash o’ pics” and see what I had floating around…

I’ve worn a dress over jeans looks before, you can check them out here. In fact, it’s one of my favorite looks. What I don’t do very often is show my arms. Or define my waist with a belt, for that matter. I did both with this cute little dress {which set me back a whopping $2.50 from the clearance rack at JC Penney} and I absolutely love the look. My sandals, which you can see here, are incredibly bright, as is the dress, so grounding them with a black belt just seemed to fit.

My daughter asked me about the pink and green color combination, it’s not something I’d usually wear. But I was totally inspired by the top in this post {women over twenty should have fun with their clothing} and the wall in this post {that green just spoke to me} by Glenda at So What to Twenty! Honestly, Glenda is just an inspiration all the way around… I love how she weaves stories in with her style posts.

Last week, I showed you how to wear a denim maxi skirt boho style. It’s one of my favorite ways to wear my denim maxi, but it can also be dressed up for work. Button down shirts are a wardrobe staple. If you don’t have one, go out and buy one now. They can be paired with anything from skirts to shorts and slacks to jeans.

A simple metallic belt and a couple of bracelets are my only accessories. Minimalism is key in the workplace. Especially when you work in a place like a library {which I do}, you don’t want a lot of jingling. And a cute pair of flats to finish things off.

Next week, I’ll conclude with How to Wear a Denim Maxi Skirt for Play!

Do you prefer heels or flats?

I love wearing these two {really there’s three, if you count the collared tee underneath the polka dot shirt} pieces together. When I’m having a bad day, this just picks me up. Which is funny because the shape does absolutely nothing for me. In fact, it emphasizes everything I want to hide…mostly my bulging middle and my skinny legs. But it also makes me smile. I think this is a case of pattern/color overcoming insecurities. Or maybe it’s just that I have to fake a certain amount of confidence to highlight the parts of me that I don’t really like… Then again, I could just be over thinking this whole thing…

Do you have an outfit like that? Something that requires that you fake self confidence?
