Chic and Casual Mix: Cape & Pencil Skirt

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! The weather here is currently all over the place (hence the crazy wind in my hair in the photos.) I have a story behind the t-shirt that I am wearing for this post! The shirt is a caricature of Coco Chanel, one of my all-time favorites, accompanied by the statement “I don’t give a chic”. I bought this t-shirt at a Souk (market) in Dubai because of my Mom. Even when my Mom is really upset, she does not use foul language – however, recently in a discussion she surprised me with the term “I don’t give a shiiiiiiit” (the i sounded like a very long e.) It made me laugh out loud, and I couldn’t resist this t-shirt as a result.

I love pencil skirts! They have an understated elegance and sex appeal. This gray metallic tweed can be dressed up or down, as I have done here with the addition of the whimsical t-shirt (this skirt would also look great with some All-Stars and a white-T.) I also love it more polished with a white button down, and here I kept the rest of the outfit upscale with my cape (super hero moment) and stilettos.

Beach Style: Patterned Pencil Skirt & Fun Heels

Hello lovelies!

I only had one opportunity to go to dinner while in Rosemary and colorful and bright was the way to go.  Since I chose this is fitted pencil skirt, I kept things easy breezy with a loose comfy top (it is the beach after all).  This amazing skirt can also be dressed up with something a bit more form fitting or dressed down further with flip floats and a T-shirt.  I wanted to use the beautiful peacock blue in the skirt and bring it out a bit more so I added the similar hued shoes but coral shoes would also look amazing!

I went without any jewelry because I forgot it but the outfit is calling for a couple of long necklaces to finish off the outfit.
