Casual Friday/Two in One

TGIF everyone!!! Hope you have great plans for the weekend. The weather here in Philly is supposed to be beautiful so I plan to take advantage of it!

In keeping with my promise to dress more colorfully I pulled out my favorite printed maxi dress to wear today. I realized it was too summery to wear (the air is still chilly) and layering a shirt underneath it didn’t look good. While I was taking the dress off, I folded the top half of the dress down to create a skirt! I was quite impressed with my little DIY maxi skirt(wait, does this count as DIY? LOL). I paired my “skirt” with my white cowl neck shirt (seen here), brown belt and cobalt blue blazer. Since the skirt is really long, thong sandals wouldn’t do so I wore my new Kenneth Cole Reaction suede peep toe wedges (which are very comfy btw). To finish off my outfit I added my chunky two toned chain necklace.

Do you have any great DIY ideas to share? Have a wonderful weekend!

    This is adorable! The print of the skirt against the blazer is really lovely.
