I'm not usually a skirts and dresses kind of mom. They just don't fit well with my day-to-day life, and I'd rather wear pants. But thankfully I still get the chance to wear them once a week to worship at church, and that is just often enough to justify beauties like this hanging in my closet. Last time I wore this skirt, several readers asked me to style it with a chambray shirt. So today, I am delivering. I like this look even better than the first time I wore it. The chambray is the perfect fabric match for the cream crochet, but figuring out the tuck was the hardest part. It all hangs on the tuck of the shirt. I tried tucking in all the way, but it just didn't look quite right. Untucked was also wrong - although with a belt it might work. The half tuck ended up being just right. I tucked in the front and loosely pulled it out a bit. It takes some playing with, but itn't hard. When it warms up, I'll switch out the boots for wedge sandals, and this look will work for dressy occasions all summer.

  3. Love this look! I personally love teaming feminine with tougher/masculine touches and this look does that beautifully! :) But why would you photoshop or de-pore your face in the pic? We all know what skin looks like. lol And besides, you're beautiful as is! ;)

  4. Thank you! I see what you mean and that honestly wasn't my intent! Sometimes the line on how much to photoshop photos is a hard one to find because every photo on this blog does go through Photoshop in one way or another. I took that photo down because I agree with you. My intent was to even out some makeup and it was overdone. Thanks for keeping me in check. ;)

    1. Girl, it's all good! I was just puzzled by it, that's all. I guess I didn't notice it in your pics until now. You're still #1 in my book, er, whatever. ;) Anyway, seriously though, this is the only blog I look forward to reading everyday. #bigfan :)
