I sort of forgot to take pictures of my outfits since Thursday, except for this little shoot from Saturday night. Whoops. I usually find taking daily photos pretty easy, but sometimes I remember what it is like to be a regular person and get lazy.

I don't typically wear skirts this length, but I really love the detailing on this one. Paired with flats, it can read a bit frumpy, but when paired with some fierce shoes, I think it works rather well. As many of you who dress modestly can surely attest, there is a fine line between appropriate and frumpy. Heels are one of the ways I find helpful in staying on the correct side of that line. The shoes are definite favorites, purchased last year for about $60. Despite the rather dramatic height, they are quite comfortable. I wore them almost all day Saturday, but after about 8 hours I did change into flats.
The hat is my sole purchase from Jessica Simpson's clothing line. In general, I've never been a fan and have avoided buying things when I noticed the brand name, but this hat, at half price, was just too fun to pass up. I've definitely done a good job of building my straw hat collection over the past few months, and this brown stunner fills a gap.
