I have to share today’s work outfit. It just goes to show that no matter what your budget, you can create a look that’s on trend, pulled together and flattering….even if your budget is only $3.50!
One of the hot looks right now is a midi-length dress or skirt…It’s feminine and flowy, and such a nice departure from a classic knee length pencil skirt which I always find myself gravitating toward.

I was on the hunt for just the right knit skirt for my outfit… with the perfect small scale print so it didn’t look like I just pulled it from my own thrift pile. It had to look updated without necessarily being a newer garment.
Well, I found it! My cost? $1.99.
To make it complete, I added a dolman sleeve light-weight black tunic sweater over a teal tank from my closet. I thrifted the tunic last summer in Michigan for $1.50!
After popping on a wide belt , my funky chunky wedges (no kitten heels here!), and a bold chain necklace, I think it works!
Do you think it works?
Actually, I love that we can wear mini, knee length, midi or maxi...whatever floats your boat! What do you think of the whole skirt length thing? Are you trying something that's a departure from your normal?
