So, uh, Chicago. In June. It’s a fickle time of year. The sun is out and warm but the air temperature is cool. So even if I wanted to wear a dress as summery as the one in today’s Inspiration Monday to work it was not going to happen today.

But that’s okay. Because that means I got to wear my new skirt (details coming on Wednesday)!

After feeling like I was all pencil skirts all the time I’ve been looking to branch out. The key, though, is making sure that the skirt isn’t too full or too long lest I feel like a ballerina or like it’s accentuating my hips. This one was an online purchase that worked out in my favor. I’m already looking forward to other ways to wear this skirt.

Although, I realized when putting this outfit together that I don’t own any brightly colored heels! I think I will be using my Sole Society credit to remedy this situation. What color do you think I should get?
