Sunday Best: Something Old, Something New

This round for Sunday Best, I stuck my DSLR and tripod in the trunk of my car (Fran-style!) and used a remote.  Next step is working on adorable poses so I don't look wacky.  But at least you're not getting a mirror selfie, right?

This was a workweek outfit that I threw together one morning before heading out.  I liked it so much that I grabbed the camera to capture it!  The skirt is probably 2+ years old, and it still had tags on it.  I felt I needed to wear it or else I ought to sell it/give it away.  And it turns out, I love it.  The top is a freebie my Mom gave me last weekend, brand new from a sale at Macy's.  It'll be great with jeans at work too, but I needed some black.


My brooch has kittens playing with a ball of yarn.

Not the most flattering angle... maybe I should have added a petticoat.
Top: Macy's via Mom (similar)
Skirt: Whtie House Black Market (similar)
Shoes:  Bait Footwear (similar)
Kittens Brooch:  Vintage Avon (Etsy)

When I got to work, one of my coworkers was like, "You dressed up!"  And yet it was just a random outfit combo I put together.  I guess I should try to do this more often, and bring more of my personal style to the office.

  1. You dressed up... lol. It makes me laugh when people think that just because you're wearing a skirt you're dressed up. Those two are not the same. Yay for more outfit photos! I love the stripes on that skirt too. There's a blue and white version on piperlime that I would love to get my hands on right now.

  3. Yeah, dresses and skirts get a lot of notice in a casual office! Silly but true. Dresses are way easier than anything; people just don't realize it.

  6. Thanks, Marissa! The only problem I'm finding with my car trunk photo method is the sun in my eyes. Yikes! I have another post drafted for this Sunday but my squinty eyes are awful.

  7. That skirt is adorable! You should absolutely wear it more. Also my theory with a black and white print is it works with any color top or accessory. Bonus versatility!!!

  8. That's why I bought it in the first place... then I felt it wasn't casual enough or was too fancy at any given time to wear it. I'm still going through my closet trying to purge stuff I don't wear, and it's at the point where it's getting tough. But that doesn't mean I don't still have way too much!
