Passionate Fashion - First Denim Skirt

Yep, I will admit it. This is my first denim skirt since I was a little tomboy. Back then, I refused to wear skirts of any sort. This time around I was excited to find a way to work it into my fall wardrobe.

I purchased this skirt at the Old Navy outlet several weeks ago just before I got sick. Since then there didn't seem to be the right time to wear it. Today, I WORE IT!

Note to self. Denim and tights... need a slip. The front of the skirt kept bunching up.

These shoes! I thrifted these shoes at Goodwill this summer with my one of my favorite shopping partners, Jess! I had to fight the 6 foot tall amazon girl for them but since she got my dress, I got the shoes!

We thought these would be Jess's wedding shoes but at 9.5 they were too big for her. I thought they would be too small and they are a bit on the tight side but with tights they actually slipped off. I swear I am missing a hook or a curve on the back of my foot that keeps heels on!

This outfit was layers built to keep me warm and business like. And it mostly did it's job. I am proud of myself for wearing more of the items in my closet and pushing myself more in my wardrobe. I just need to remember to dress for the position I want not the position I have and to dress old enough to be taken seriously. Sometimes I have a hard time being taken seriously because I like to be silly and people think that is me all the time. Grrrr!!!! I don't want to be boring and serious!

If only my hair would grow up and be fun and professional like me.

Love the necklace! I was having the same problem with my skirts once tights season rolled around but I finally got a slip and it definitely does the trick!

I like that whole look: the chunky short-sleeved sweater, the fringe hanging off the skirt, the tights...nice!

Slips are saving my dupa this fall.

I never have that problem with my denim skirt, but maybe because I've not been able to find a straight one I like yet. I do love those shoes, what a lucky find!

Those tights are really cute with those shoes.

Style on a String ..because style has nothing to do with money.
