Side-slit skirt. Now say that five times fast. I’ve been on the hunt for a work to weekend-appropriate skirt that hit every check box on my list. What was on my list? Versatility, the perfect amount of leg baringness, and a streamlined (but not tight) silhouette. I think I met my match with Madewell’s side-slit skirt.
Introducing a brand new series on the blog: The Piece, wherein I take my favorite piece from the month and show you how I’ll be wearing it on repeat for the most repetitive occasions in my life: work, the occasional date, a night out and finally (the best), the weekend.
Want to see how I’ll be wearing this month’s piece? Keep scrolling.
For The Workday
When it comes to personal style, I like to keep it simple. The boldest thing you’ll ever see me where is a bright(er) color and maybe a floral print or wise stripes. So when it comes to work, muted hues, slouchy silhouettes, and less-revealing pieces are my go-to. Chambray and stripes are my #powercouple, while ankle booties are just my shoe spirit animal.
For Date Night
free drink date night outfit? Casual, comfortable and just a little coy. During the winter my go-to meet for drinks outfit was a chunky knit sweater and distressed jeans (so I could show off just a little skin), but springtime means patio drinks (weather permitting), a unexpected side-slit and block-heel sandals.
For A Night Out
I don’t go out that often, but when I DO, the day of I always have a mini-meltdown trying to figure out what to wear. Wardrobe meltdowns are made harder when you’re trying to find something slinky to wear, but instead see the turtlenecks you own for each day of the week. But I’m excited to swap in a midi for skinny jeans for those very rare 2 a.m. nights.
For The Weekend
Lately San Francisco weekends haven’t been the warmest, even though spring has officially sprung. But for that one hour where the sun might be out and the wind is hiding, I will happily slide into sandals and a straw hat. But I’ve learned that you should always carry a jacket in this city, so utility jackets are key (plus they have plenty of pockets).
