Just a quick post today sharing this summer work outfit. As mentioned in my video, I have been loving saturated, jewel-toned colors this summer. As soon as I got my paws on Khatu‘s slinky scarf-print blouse, I knew it’d be the perfect complement for this vibrant skirt.
This skirt was yet another happy find from Savers thrift store…
I had been wanting a garment in linen, the ultimate casual fabric for summer, but didn’t want to shell out too much for something so wrinkle-prone.
Crazy enough, this skirt is a size 7 and fit me almost perfectly at the waist. The hips were noticeably too wide, so I slimmed them down from the inside and tapered the bottom. After wearing this a few times, I realize it needs a little more DIY work at the waist and/or hem to achieve the perfect fit.
bracelet also from Savers…love the marbled blue stones & delicate gold. Fits perfectly after removing a link.
As some of you may know, I switched jobs earlier this year in the midst of a stressful time. Since then, I have been so much happier career-wise, but have found much less time to write posts, answer reader questions, and read my favorite blogs. Thank you to both loyal and new readers for stopping by every so often, and for keeping me abreast of good deals and finds!
