I bought this skirt over a year ago one on final sale from J. Crew Factory, but even though I ordered my usual size, it was waaaaay too small. So disappointing. I kind forgot all about it until I did my closet clean out earlier this year. My first thought was to sell it, but since I've lost at little weight, it now fits! Hooray!
I was determined to give it try, but every time I put it on it just didn't look right or I wasn't happy with what I had combined it with, so I'd take back off and find something else to wear. As usual, Pinterest came to the rescue with a bunch of super cute outfits with cobalt (or navy) blue maxi skirts!
Blue maxi skirt Pinspiration:
I love, love, love the skirt with a pretty cream lace top and the casual look with the chambray. I also really like the idea of finding a similar colored top and wearing it with a cardigan and belt...just like a dress, but better.
But for today's look, I decided to try pairing my skirt with navy. Mainly because I hadn't had a chance to wear this shirt on the blog and because I remembered loving Fran's navy and cobalt outfit combo from a few years back. I have a cobalt pencil skirt as well...so that outfit might just have to happen in the very near future. :)

With the bun and the skirt, I was worried I looked a bit like an Apostolic Pentecostal (read women don't cut their hair and dress in uber modest attire). So I swiped on some extra mascara and added a few more blingy bracelets to liven up the look. Ya'll'd tell me if my outfit was all kinds of wrong, right?
