After what seems like the longest winter ever, springtime is finally (hopefully) here this week! At last I can bust out my warm weather wardrobe from the back of my closet and style new outfits to wear. I’m glad because I was definitely getting sick of constantly reaching for the same sweaters on chilly mornings when I was in a rush! In the weeks ahead I know I will go for midi and maxi skirts for every occasion.
A spring and summer staple for me personally is a midi or maxi skirt because it’s perfect for the office when I want to look put together, and it can still be styled in many different ways from tailored to breezy and relaxed. Paired with a button down and open toe booties, you look polished; wear it with a fun top and sandals or sneakers and you are ready for the weekend!
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER
