I put together this outfit one morning before work, looked it over in the mirror before heading out, and then we took pictures after work…and it turns out I’m not super crazy about it after looking at it in pictures. Ha. I knew in my mind that I wanted to wear this new-to-me skirt with my slide sandals, and even though I liked the combination when I looked in the mirror, I don’t love how it looks in these photos. I feel like the sandals are covering too much of my feet? As it turns out, I think I prefer to wear them with pants or jeans.

I found myself browsing the selection at LOFT in person last month and this striped midi skirt caught my eye, so I immediately made a mental note (and took a photo) so I could order it during the next 50% off sale. I ordered it in a size 0, which is my normal size in other brands but sometimes is too big in LOFT (I don’t understand?!), and this skirt is slightly loose at my natural waist. (It’s great if I want to eat a big meal, haha.) I love the button front, and it does have pockets! I didn’t end up putting my hands in them much during this shoot for some unknown reason. I didn’t realize this skirt came in petite after I had ordered (which now looks to be sold out), but I wonder if that would have fit better in the waist. I don’t mind the regular length at all; it’s perfect for work!

Our days of glorious summer-like temperatures seem to be over for now and it’s back to chilly rain! Oh, spring. It’ll be nice to have the break before summer rears its head for good.
