most mondays i’m avoiding those blues. but not today. that’s ‘cuz i have a snazzy new blue skirt from anthropologie. and it’s corduroy. back in the day when i had a kick-ass sewing room, i whipped up a blue wide-wale corduroy wrap around skirt with a leather button that i wore the bejeebers out of. on any given day you would see me sporting that skirt around town with blue tights and blue pointy toe flats. there was absolutely nothing fancy about that skirt but boy did i love it. my favorite way to style it? well, i would sneak into mr. style’s closet and borrow his brown cashmere turtleneck for an oversized look. oh how i loved to step into his closet and inhale the lingering scent of his favorite cologne that hung in the air. he has a knack for picking out just the right fragrance.

imagine my delight when i came across this faux wrap skirt that’s a little bit preppy and a whole lot of cute. and the asymmetrical hem? it’s fresh and modern and gives this skirt the zing it needs. there are so many ways to style this little number but the temps are mild enough today to get by with a shirt and sweater. guess what? i may not have blue pointy toe flats like i used to but i do own these adorable kate spade velvet ballet flats that’ll give me that preppy vibe i’m so fond of. but i did want to draw attention to this adorable shirt by madewell. it’s called an ‘ex-boyfriend’ shirt so it’s oversized. take a peek at the back panel. the stripes are different than the front. the yoke is horizontal and the back has a thinner strip than the front. genius!
