This skirt was another item rediscovered during the closet purge mentioned in this post. I’ve, on numerous occasions, attempted to wear it differently from how it was originally modeled (with a denim shirt) but never thought my combinations were especially inspiring. 


When I bought the skirt, I did not think it would be as challenging as it has been (for me) to wear creatively. I think I need to put more potential closet additions through the WIFW wringer.

Forever 21 Boxy Crop Top (similar) | Hermes Reversible Belt | Ann Taylor  Modern Classic Pearl & Chain Necklace | J. Crew Collection Silk Crepe de Chine Skirt in Shoe Sketch | c/o Chicwish Side Zippers Tote Bag in Black | Kate Spade New York Licorice Metallic Leather Pump (similar)


For those looking for a more affordable alternative to Ann Taylor’s Gallery Tote, Chicwish offers a similar bag in black for less than $45 (with the first purchase / 30% off promotion). Both retailers used polyurethane to construct the bag but the Chicwish version looks less structured and is more inclined to expand laterally.


The Chicwish bag also comes with a detachable zippered pouch which aids organization but reduces capacity.

Ann Taylor is having another amazing timed sale; until tomorrow, take 70% off all sale items with code FLASH70.
