29 + 30: Pencil Skirts, Tank Tops, Denim Jackets and Black Peep-toes.

More layers, more Pencil Skirts and more Denim Finishing Pieces (yesterday was my Denim Vest and today is the Denim Jacket). Today's Outfits were worn two days in a row, both for my Mom daily duties and later in the evening for the classes I teach. They are both a little Dressy, a little Casual, put-together without much effort at all. That is why a Denim Finisher is such a Great, Versatile piece to have. If you don't own one yet - get one!! Both of these Outfits have the same elements: Pencil Skirts, Tank Tops (which are both Embellished with Sparkly Stones) and the same Denim Jacket on top. It is a simple formula that works. I kept the jewelry simple and even the same hairstyle - accessorized with a Headband, each time. Also, with each Outfit I am wearing Black, Peep-toe, Bow Shoes. What do you think? Yeay or nay for pairing Dressier Skirts with a Denim Jacket or Denim Vest?
This Skirt has a cute Peplum Ruffle on the Middle of the back, on the bottom (you can see that on the above picture). And just like yesterday I added a Thin Belt over the Skirt.

  14. The denim jacket looks great with both of these outfits. I really love the white skirt, I am seeing SO many people wearing white in the fall and I am loving it. That silk blouse is really pretty against the patterned skirt, too.

  15. Hi Ada, I am loving that first look! Black, white, and denim = super chic in my book. I am a big fan of adding a denim jacket to something fancy or something casual...basically denim jackets go with just about everything (except other similarly colored denim, obvi :)!

  16. Love the chic first look!! I am a huge fan of my denim jacket and seems to my go to piece when I need something to keep me warm.
