In last week Friday's Fashion Post, I showed you an old, short chambray skirt. That is my usual style, and one I feel most comfortable in. However, there are times when I feel a longer skirt is more appropriate so I wanted to buy a longer version. I found this skirt on sale at CJBanks for only $14.99 so I ordered it.
I'm one of the few fashion bloggers who hates to shop on line because I never know what size I am. I swear I wear a different size in every item, every store, every brand. Ugh! Anyway, I have a thick waist so I thought I'd try a size 6 instead of a 4 but of course when it arrived, it was too big. I forgot sizes at stores that cater to older women tend to run bigger. I debated returning it, but I'm just not one of those people. I hate to return anything.
This is one of my favorite tee shirts I ever bought! It is so edgy yet classic at the same time. It really adds a lot to trendy twist to any outfit. I bought it at the suggestion of a helpful sales clerk, otherwise, I don't think I would have even noticed it as it's not my usual style. He pointed them out to me and said they just got them in, I tried it on, and it was love at first sight!
The necklace was a gift from my daughter.
I kept the silver theme going with a modern silver bracelet and rings.
The skirt has an elastic, drawstring waist, so it's very comfy!!! The A-Line cut of the skirt plus the soft fabric also make the skirt very comfortable to wear. And it has pockets! Yes, who doesn't love pockets? It was so easy to shop in this outfit all day because I had long deep pockets to drop my car keys in instead of the bottom of my purse where I'd have to hunt for them later!
My bag, also from CJBanks (old, no longer available) you've seen hundreds of times. I do have plenty of other bags, but I don't know, there's something special about this bag...it just goes with everything and has become the bag I always grab when heading out the door.
I wore silver metallic sandals on my feet (old).
Because it was one size too big, there is a little extra fabric in the small of my back and hip/butt area. I thought of shortening the skirt just a tad so it just touches the top of my knee, but it seems like a lot of work. What do you think? Hem it or leave it alone? Or, should I have just returned it because it's a little big? I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
Overall I really do like the skirt as an alternative to wear for my shorter chambray skirt. My husband, not so much. He wasn't a fan.
Have a Great Day! Amy
