SUNSET / Dressing up a white tee and denim skirt with orange blazer and sparkles

Denim skirts are a love-it or hate-it fashion piece.  Some banish them to the deepest, darkest part of storage never to be seen again and others pull the neatly folded, carefully stored piece out at the first sign of sun.  I plead the fifth to loving denim skirts and I even have a few of those short, undone hem ones (oh, no shame...).  This one is my favorite though because of the chuckle I get whenever I wear it (last worn here).  Does anyone else see the irony in a denim pencil skirt?  Denim, which is considered to be a carefree casual material, made into a pencil skirt, the silhouette of skirts that women typically wear to work.  This would make a good contender for a casual Friday ensemble!

This is my rendition of the classic white tee and jeans combination.  Except I spruced it up with a little bit of sparkle, some color, and a statement spring blazer.  All of those seem to turn this denim skirt from casual to more business-casual, right?  It also just happened that we took these pictures during sunset and that matched the blazer and accessories perfectly.  The magic of the golden hour!

By the way, that big blotch on the side of my left leg is one of the marking from the bug bites I mentioned that I got from this entry.  At least they aren't baseball-sized swellings now... =D

D&G jacket (super old, pretty similar one here), BCBGeneration tee (old but this one in 'Ash White' is similar) /
D&G denim pencil skirt (another oldie but loving this similar Burberry one and this one on sale for under $50) /
Fornarina shoes (sassy pair on sale, similar under $175, bright gold alternatives) / Belt from another skirt
Louis Vuitton pochette (similar under $150, total splurge but worth it!) / Guess bangle

TGIF everyone!!  What are everyone's plans this weekend?  I am taking a much needed spa day/weekend with mom.  Of course that will involve lots of eating...!  Have a wonderful weekend and take care!
