Summer of Dresses…First Submission

April 29th Skirt Outfit

In case you haven’t heard, the Geek Girls launched in response to a declaration by @nicycle.  Talk about a great reason to wear skirts and dresses, as well as admire other lovely locals!

Today has been a productive day in support of this important local initiative :)

I dropped off two dresses at a new tailor in Eden Prairie (I will likely be referring people to her as she seems like a keeper!).

Additionally, I stepped out for lunch at The Loop in the skirt ensemble pictured above.  Here are the details:

  • The cotton a-line skirt is from Marshall Field’s petite section – it’s probably 8 years old.  I love the cut and the pattern on the skirt.
  • The camisole w/velvet trim/straps is very old Ann Taylor – they don’t make them like they used to!
  • The cotton/linen jacket is from Eddie Bauer petites – I think from 2009.  It’s a fairly fitted jacket except in the back, which I wish was better.
  • The yellow wedge shoes are Kenneth Cole from last summer.  I like these shoes for dresses and skirts because they’re comfortable and they don’t cut my leg off as sharply as a darker color would.
  • The turquoise beads are from Target and the silver necklace is from Kohl’s or Target – both pieces were bought several years ago.  The turquoise creates a V and the silver adds some shine.

    I’ve been feeling scared to wear patterned skirts – but seeing your photo here makes me think I should take a leap!

    Any suggestions for those of us who are pattern phobic to start?
