Skirt Week 2: Summer Basics

Skirt Week 2 continues today with another maxi skirt.  I styled this two ways – for an easy after-work look and for a casual Friday at work.

Skirt:  Eloquii (Available here)

A black maxi skirt, like black pants or a black pencil skirt, is a wardrobe basic. 

Tee:  LOFT (Available here)

Pairing it with a white sleeveless tee, as I did in the casual look, could be a little plain and boring, but I threw on a bright printed scarf to add visual interest.  Flip flops completed the comfy look.

Scarf:  Eva Mendes for New York & Company

I wish I had tucked the top in a bit more for the photos as it looked a little better and less sloppy that way, but overall, I wore this with comfort in mind so it was great.

Sunglasses:  Calvin Klein
Ring:  Purchased at local jewelry show

Since it got chilly the evening I wore this, I threw on my black moto jacket, and it was a good choice for a casual after work dinner out with the man and kids.

Earrings:  The Limited

For work, I maintained the color palette, but added a blazer with a textured print and wore booties instead of flip flops.

Blazer:  LOFT Petites
Booties:  Target
Glasses:  Firmoo.com (Available here)

How do you make your basics a little less boring?
