I’m gettin’ all fancy with the twirlin’

This outfit was directly inspired by the most popular pin in my whole Pinterest account. When I first noticed all the pins, I couldn’t figure out why, what is essentially a drive-by shot in an Urban Outfitters, was so well-liked. But having worn my own version, I totally see it now. It’s such a versatile look, it just depends on how many sundresses and blazers you have! This also infinitely expanded my work wardrobe and it lets me wear all the summer dresses I’ve been missing since starting corporate life.

Future DIY

I’ve seen this skirt floating around the Pintersphere (pinterverse?) as well as the blogosphere, and fall more in love with it every time I come upon it. The price, however, is not so friendly. At $115, I just can’t bring myself to hit the checkout button. Partially because I think it would be easy enough to make.

So, Mom (I know you read this!), start looking around work for awning-striped fabric and work on your box-pleating– we’ve got a new project to tackle! Just don’t buy the yellow stripes please, I don’t want to blend in with my drapes.

Per a comment request (from Lauren), I paired my hot pink jeans and navy blazer. End result…love it! Great pick, Lauren, I owe you some cookies.

To make the look more office-friendly, I balanced the, let’s call it spunky-ness, of the pants with the tailored blazer and low booties. However you decide to style them, I can’t recommend enough that you go get yourself a pair of bright jeans. Whether they’re pink like mine, or in any other fun color like these, bright jeans will make any day a little happier:
