I must thank Audrey for writing in to this blog with a question about “How to wear full length skirts” in a previous post for the “Ask Val” section. As promised, I created an outfit to display one way I’ve worn a full skirt right smack dab in the middle of the day!

This violet silk skirt from “Armani Exchange” was so beautiful that I had to buy it years ago. But given it’s so fancy at first glance I made the cardinal mistake of shoving it to the back of my overstuffed closet thinking I would “save” it for some fancy gala. 

Well I should apologize to his beautiful garment. Because it’s simply TOO gorgeous to be shunned away like that! I finally found a way to wear it a bit more casually. By pairing it with a soft cashmere sweater, a simple beret and low kitten heels I feel perfectly comfortable going to lunch in this outfit. Once again I stress the importance of two points…

1.) If you truly fall in love with something….BUY IT. 

and…

2.) If the item is so “fancy” that it makes you doubt yourself (IE: “I have nowhere to wear that!”) trust that you can re-work it into your everyday rotation.

And PS: If wearing half of a ball gown to Starbucks is wrong? I don’t wanna be right….. 😉
