today’s post is short and sweet. because what can you say about a satin slip skirt and plaid blouse except it works. the beauty of separates is that they can be mixed and matched with other key pieces in your wardrobe. and we all want a working wardrobe. a black satin skirt is considered a wardrobe staple that looks fantastic with so many items already tucked inside your closet. think shirts, tees, and sweaters depending on the occasion and season. a slip skirt is truly the starting point for that throw and go outfit.
yes, it was time to slip into a skirt as i’ve been wearing loads of jeans, chinos, and athletic wear. time to remind me of how fun it is to be a girl. can you name the popular Rodgers and Hammerstein musical with the lyrics “I enjoy being a girl?” if you said Flower Drum Song move to the head of the class. but we do need reminders now and then of all the joys that come with being a girl.
When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curls
I float as the clouds on air do
I enjoy being a girl.
if you are missing out on the joys of a satin slip skirt (old, similar here, here, and here), then you must make haste and add one to your closet. most slip skirts just slide over your hips, and voila! no muss, no fuss. today, i pulled out a red plaid shirt from Ralph Lauren (limited sizes, similar here, here, and here) that looks fantastic with this black skirt. a belt (old, also from Ralph Lauren similar here) was added for visual interest. and who can resist a pair of black leather boots (old, similar here, here, and here ) come January?! didn’t i tell you a satin slip skirt was throw and go? chic outfits don’t have to be complicated to put together.
