27 Jan The Jean Skirt – A Closet Staple for Anytime of Year
One piece you want in your closet, the jean skirt, is a closet staple you can wear year-round. This Loft skirt is among my favorites, as it is soft, has buttons down the front and an a-line cut. Kind of a 70’s vibe!
Well, it has been raining a whole lot the week we had to take pictures. Not easy for the Fashion blogger lifestyle. We have a more flexible schedule, however, with hubby working from home, so you go between the showers. This morning, before my Dry needling appt, we actually saw something that resembled the sun! There was a glow, a bit of heat, mmm, could it have been the sun?
Ruffles, and tweed, and denim Oh my! I’ve had this tweed blazer from Anthropologie for years now, bought on Poshmark, it is a favorite. I wore it with a different faux leather pencil skirt here.
The colors in the jacket are navy, rust, and camel, which enabled me to style it with my H&M camel mock turtleneck underneath. I’ve shopped my closet for this look and tend to do so more in January and February as I look to add some more Spring clothes to my closet.
I wear this jean skirt often as I like the feel and how it has a bit of a retro vibe with the buttons down the front. I will wear it in the Spring with some cute sandals and stylish tops. This is a staple that worn any time of year looks stylish. I’ve had a few denim skirts in my days- long, shorter and in between. I like this length as I think it really works for everyone. I found this jean skirt from LOFT that is nearly identical- just the perfect style! ( It’s 50% OFF too! )
I need to stock up on more patterned tights for the Winter,but to keep my legs warm and keep the leg line going, I wore my OTK boots in rust. I love a look that says stylish but not stuffy!
Think of how many ways you can style this skirt for this season-
Wear it in this style with a blazer, sweater, and tall boots
Style a feminine blouse with a different shade of denim for a denim on denim look with booties
Wear a chunky knit sweater half-tucked with a pair of on-trend combat boots.
Style a lighter plaid blazer, as I wore in this post, with tights and a pair of block heels.
Wear the skirt with a turtleneck and add a longer kimono for a rocker style.
Try a silk blouse, blazer and tall boots with a jean skirt.
Going for a trendy look? Wear a faux leather top with your jean skirt!
Did you ever think maybe Handel may have written the “Hallelujah Chorus” at the end of January, excited that the month was near an end!? 🙂
By the weekend I was ready to escape! Hubby usually works from home remotely but had to be on-site this week, leaving me at home most days. You know, cabin fever? I am glad I have the pups to keep me company! We went to The Cottage after not being there for a month, we missed our friends there. I love a good chat with the regulars, and just enjoying an excellent bottle of vino with hubby. We talked to some guys who had been to Costa Rica earlier in the month and I was living vicariously through his pictures he took, wishing I could transport myself~
We had an estimate on our floors- replacing cream-colored linoleum floors ( the bane of my household!) with Luxury Vinyl. I joked with the contractor and said, what a marketing ploy, put the word “Luxury” in front of any word and it is in high demand! We would replace the Master, guest and powder room with dark mahogany looking wood planks in LV. In the kitchen, I would have to consider a print or color to go with the rest of our room.
