Happy Wednesday! I hope y’all are having a great week. This is the last week of regular classes, so I’m knee deep in grading right now. And next week is Finals Week so stress barf. I’m teaching two classes and feel like I have no time to breathe. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this break in a big way.

Did you notice I’m not wearing a lick of makeup? So I totally broke out in hives on the Friday after Thanksgiving and had to go barefaced. I don’t mind, but when you’re wearing a faux leather midi skirt and fishnets, you really need to pump up the top, ya know?

I’ve worn this skirt before here. I was dressed for church just as I am in these pictures. The only difference is that I decided to funk it up by adding a pair of fishnet tights.

And, of course, those oh~so~retro Mary Jane pumps. Are these not the cutest shoes? I don’t wear them nearly enough.

Now that I’ve worn this skirt dressed up, I’d like to wear it in a fun way to work. Maybe styled with a graphic tee like this. Isn’t that such a fun and unexpected pairing? I think it’d work with my Alice in Wonderland tee. What do you think?

I’m linking up with the following ladies:

  • So much gorgeousness to behold here! It is truly a beautiful combination and I really like how the leather and fishnets keep it from being overly sweet. Those Mary Janes need to be worn more often. Now I really want to try fishnets with all my Mary Janes immediately…

    I hope you are feeling better and have an opportunity to de-stress soon.

    • Jennie, the semester will officially end for me on Friday (graduation ceremony at 7 pm) and then I can breathe. Yes!

  • Kelly

    You are one stylish mama!! Those shoes are to die for and you need to find a way to definitely wear them more often. LOL on the the stress barf…funny not funny!

    • Thank you. I always get angsty at the beginning and end of the semester. At the beginning, I’m worried that I won’t cover enough material. At the end, I’m worried about all of the stuff that I had to omit. Especially this semester because it’s a short term (8 weeks).
