Casual Friday/Denim on Denim

TGIF everybody!

Denim skirts and I have a temperamental relationship.  I love them but whenever I try one on, it never seems to fit  right!  Either the skirt gapes in the waist  or has too much stretch in it which causes the skirt to rise way above my knees when I walk.  After trying on several of them, I going to give up until I saw this dark rinse skirt on Lands End’s website.  Since I had a 30% off code, I decided to take a chance and ordered it.  When I got it I immediately put it on and I was not disappointed! The skirt is the perfect fit and length for me.  The skirt  has  elastic bands at the waist that eliminates gaping (the elastic waist is completely unnoticeable). There is right amount of stretch in the skirt that stops it from rising above my knees.

I paired my skirt with my polka dot denim shirt from Old Navy (go get this shirt!), red flats for a pop of color and a sliver  chain necklace to finish off my Casual Friday look.  The skirt is currently on sale here with an additional 30% off.  Happy shopping!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    I don’t usually own with denim on denim, but it definitely works when it’s with two different shades.

    Love that so many of my favorite bloggers bought this shirt! I haven’t worn mine yet, but I know it’s going to be really versatile. Now I might have to try it with my denim pencil skirt…
