Ever since it arrived in the mail over a week ago, I have been itching for the perfect occasion to wear this skirt from Express. The cut on other full skirts are not the most flattering on my frame. I have tried on at least five and they all went straight back to the rack. I finally hit the jackpot with this one. It's true to size. It doesn't make me look like a puffy marshmallow. The side pockets are icing on the cake and length is perfect for dressing up with heels or wearing an oxford with flats for a more casual look. You know I only highly suggest buying certain pieces, ones that I truly love and think you will too. This is one of them. Full skirts are a big trend for the spring, but honestly, this one is a classic. Trend or not, it's a item that will get plenty of wear and won't lose it's spark any time soon.
As I was editing these photos, it dawned on me that I literally wore almost the exact same outfit last year for Valentine's Day. The only differences were the bottoms and scarf. Next year I plan to ditch the red and throw on some pink. I need to spice things up around here.
Enjoy you day/weekend and eat lots of chocolate covered strawberries (with champagne). See you Monday!
