Hope those of you who celebrate Easter had a nice holiday! We kept things simple this year and just had a quiet dinner at home with the kids. I took some quiet time to de-stress from a crazy week by spending the morning in bed sleeping in late and then just resting. I then did some blog photos and played a little basketball with the kids.Yesterday definitely provided some much needed R&R, but today, it’s back to work.
I feel like my work style gets a little more casual in the spring and summer, but lately, I have been trying to look a little more polished. This embroidered skirt is such a great versatile piece that I can style in a few different ways. The colors of the embroidery make it easy to pair with a variety of tops and jackets or sweaters.
For today’s look, I paired the skirt with a white blouse and orange blazer to bring out one of the main colors in the embroidery.
I went with a 14 Petite in this skirt and still had it taken in a little through the hips/legs. The item description says to size up, but I did not. ELOQUII bottoms are always usually a little big in the hips and thighs for me and sometimes the waist. This skirt was perfect in the waist but still a tad big through the legs. If you are bigger on bottom, it may make sense to size up in this skirt. Otherwise, I would personally recommend ordering your usual size. It is a heavy cotton fabric and has no stretch except in the back of the waistband.
I kept the shoes and bag simple and more classic in black, but I felt like this skirt deserved a little extra jewelry. I threw on a long tassel necklace, large gold hoops, and a few bracelets to complete the look.
I love how professional this outfit is while still maintaining so much personality. I never like feeling stuffy, and this look definitely doesn’t do that.
This skirt is such a great statement piece – I can’t wait to pair it with an army jacket for a more casual look.
