I'm not one for "Pretty" clothes, but every now and then I enjoy putting on a old-fashioned midi skirt and heels and feeling "Pretty". This is an outfit I wore on an afternoon date with my husband. I first wore it out to breakfast and church, then we went on a stroll along the Eau Claire River Walk. I plan on doing a travel post on that soon because it has been recently completed and it is absolutely gorgeous!
My skirt is new this season, it is from CJBanks. I bought it at the same time I purchased my blue chambray skirt HERE, and yes, this one is also a tad too big, but I think it will be an easy fix. I just have to open up the elastic waist and make it tighter.
It is an absolutely gorgeous skirt. I love the color! It has an beautiful embossed and eyelet detail in the hemline that is hard to see in the photos.
I purchased this skirt for only $14.99 when CJBanks was having a huge sale. If you think you'd like to shop at CJBanks but they are a bit on the high side for you, sign up for their emails. They have regular sales and clearance prices that are absolutely amazing! I wouldn't be able to buy anything there if it wasn't for their sales!
I wore my skirt with a white eyelet top from JCPenney (old) to coordinate with the eyelet in the hem of the skirt. I added a sun hat (old, JCP) and white sunglasses (old, JCP) because we were outside walking in the sun.
My sling back wedge sandals are super old, and super comfortable. I was able to wear them for most of the day, but I did bring a pair of sneakers to change into in case they started to get uncomfortable. See that look below.
My striped bag from CJBanks (no longer available) went perfectly with my outfit. I wore a white seeded bracelet on my wrist (old).
And here is the look with sneakers for those of you who are interested. They are my nude Adidas NEO Courtset Sneakers I bought for my Myrtle Beach Vacation I took in the spring. Love these sneakers!
We had such a great day! I can't wait to tell you more about it. It's amazing how much fun you can have in your own hometown!
Have a Great Day! Amy
