Happy Monday, Ladies!
The weather here in Sacramento has finally started to get the memo that it's fall, but we're loving that its still warm enough to pair some fall favorites with summer favorites. Whether you love sun dresses or cozy #sweaterweather, this time of year in our city gives us the option to choose!
This week we're excited to style our black ponte mini skirt 3 different ways!
Black skirts are always a perfect staple piece to add to your year round wardrobe. They can easily be dressed up, down and worn for many different occasions.
I wanted to go for a look that could be worn for work or even for a casual weekend. I don’t know about you guys but I always love pieces I can wear to multiple outings. I paired the skirt with the cable knit lace up sweater in the off white color. I tucked the sweater into the skirt for a cleaner look. It wouldn’t be a fall outfit if you didn’t have some extra layers. So for the first one, layer with the playful plaid print button up. The print adds some dimension to this look.
Now that the weather is starting to officially cool down. Add a 2nd later with the camel faux suede long coat. You’re going to fall in love with the buttery smooth texture that it features.
Lastly, the accessories. For a weekend look add some opaque black tights under the skirt and some combat boots for an edgier look. Also a long necklace to give it that finishing touch.
When I think of a black mini skirt, especially in a stretchy material, I instantly think of an outfit for work or a night out. For this week's look, I decided to show you how to take a look from work to happy hour!
For the work look, I paired our halter neck top in rust with the black mini skirt and one of my favorite black cardigans we carry. The top is more of a matte material, which gives it a casual feel. By pairing it with a necklace for a pop of gold and black work-appropriate attire, this look can be worn to the office while still being stylish. I also decided to go with this top because I'm loving this color for fall!
I finished the outfit off with our bow mule flats. I love that they give your outfit a polished look without sacrificing your comfort. I'm one of those girls who have always wanted to be that girl who wears heels to basically everything, and always looks so put together. But I'm not and that's ok because hashtag, mom life! So I love to find comfortable shoes that still give me the feeling that I have my life together, at least when it comes to my outfit.
Happy hour with the co-workers? Girl's night out and your meeting runs late? Be ready for a fun night within seconds by simply tossing the cardigan and switching out the mules for a pair of our sexy black pumps! I also decided to pair another one of our pretty necklaces but this time in silver to show that silver jewelry can be pretty, too! I liked the choker accent on this one better for the nighttime outfit, as well. What are your favorite work to happy hour staples?
A black mini skirt doesn't have to be dressy! You can definitely dress it down for a comfortable and casual look by pairing it with your every day pieces. I paired the skirt with our mock neck top in coral and ivory. This piece is great for fall because it's easy for layering and will go with many items.
To bring this look into fall I added a denim button up as a layering piece. However, with a fun twist! I knotted the bottom and kept it unbuttoned. If it gets warm just cuff up the sleeves or cuff them up anyways to add more range to this look.
I kept the accessories muted with a grey floppy hat. It's a nice piece that will keep your hair tidy if it gets windy. And hold just the essentials in our new zipper pouch! For shoes I recommend ankle booties of course!! But it'll be cute with flats for a casual look or heels if you want to spice it up.
This outfit is low-key but all the little details add up to an outfit that gives off the impression that you put in a lot of effort! ;) Wear this out to brunch with friends or for the Dia de los Muertos self guided tour around Oak Park!
