Outfit of the Week - Birthdays & Wrinkles

chambray-green-pencil-1

 chambray: old navy (similar for $9!) // skirt: target // shoes: nine west // 
necklace: ebay (similar) // watch: fossil //

First of all, I apologize for the wrinkly nature of the skirt. These pictures were taken post 8-hour workday, so I'm definitely looking... crumpled. Besides the inevitable wrinkles after sitting for hours, I love this Target skirt. It is comfy, the colors are pretty and it is really thick, which is idea for those of us that have... a little bit extra in the back. 

After work last week, I wore this outfit to my husband's birthday dinner. Things have been so crazy for us the past few weeks, so we decided to celebrate date-night style. We went to eat in a fancy restaurant in the tallest building in OKC. We sat way too high up for my liking, but we got to watch a beautiful sunset and enjoy some time together. 


Happy Birthday, Eric. You make my life so much more adventurous and beautiful. 
I am so blessed by you.

  4. This outfit looks like a perfect formula for an outfit... pencil skirt + chambray + statement necklace= always something cute! I have a banana republic skirt that looks like it's the same material as yours here (and yes perfect for us gals with a little bootay) and mine looks like that at the end of the day too, and those wrinkles always make it to the blog! Anways, I love this and you look great :)

  5. Happy birthday to your hubs! I'm glad to hear you guys could squeeze in a date night to celebrate! Love the skirt, it's a great color. I really love those Target skirts because the thickness is perfect. But they do wrinkle. I always think its absurd that there are people out there who would judge a wrinkly skirt. Basically you just need to sit down ONE TIME and it happens, get over it people!

    The green is lovely and looks like you guys had a great dinner out!

  8. Love that you worked the awesome color of that skirt into your necklace. this is a very cool look! don't feel bad about the wrinkles, i feel like that's the nature of the beast when it comes to pencil skirts.

    Happy belated birthday to your husband!

  9. I love the color of this skirt. (And obviously, chambray is the best.) And what a pretty necklace! I am always regretting that I take pictures in the afternoon, after school has kicked my butt and it looks like I didn't even brush my hair. =)

  14. I literally spent ten minutes last night trying to get the wrinkles out of a Target skirt. If I didn't teach first thing in the morning, I could peg it on sitting down. I adore the color of this skirt, and love how nicely it plays off of the necklace. Happy belated Birthday to your husband!

  31. Love this look (even with the wrinkles!) I feel my wrinkles show that I actually wore the outfit (I tell myself these things to make myself feel better...) Pencil skirt and chambray shirt is a perfect combination! Hope your hubby enjoyed his birthday celebration!
