Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post


This is a guest post while J is away. Be sure to check out Katie's blog, Hems for Her!

I was inspired by Glee's resident bad girl Diana Aragon to pair a patterned maxi skirt with a casual and brightly colored T-shirt. I love the unexpected combo of the long swishing skirt and the bright punch of a slub-knit T-shirt. It's as comfortable as wearing jeans and a T, but so much more elegant! What's your go-to outfit for comfortable elegance?

  3. Great outfit!  A simple bright tee can really make an outfit. Love it paired with the maxi and love your owl necklace.
