This was not a look for the office. It’s an experiment at jeans-substitution for a day out and about in our small city. During our mild winter, we have a lot of leeway for non-jeans casual wear!
I do love a stripe, and this long sleeve tee combines two of my favorite colors. And I like a slim-fitting top when I wear a full skirt. This one’s from Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted for just a few dollars at the Daily Bread Thrift Store. I really appreciate what they do for our community, feeding the hungry and providing shelter for the homeless when they can.
I added my leggings for the cooler temps, but I decided to forgo boots/booties for one day. I went with my Ralph Lauren sparkly flats, and felt pretty darn good. I do wonder if the look is a wee bit too young for me, but I did not get arrested, or worse! stared at by the upstanding matrons of our town.

Do you also get the urge to wear non-jeans on your casual days? Would a cotton skirt and leggings fit the bill for you?
