Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week’s guest posts are from Auntie M — welcome back!
There is so much of me that wants to not like this skirt. Maybe the flowers are too precious or unprofessional, and the gold thread too gaudy, and what would you wear with a skirt like this anyway? But I keep coming back to it. It feels like a nice summer skirt for what I would call a “non-court” day at the office. (I also wouldn’t wear this to a deposition. But for those days when I would just be spending hours at my desk working on written discovery, this skirt would probably do the trick.) As for what to wear with it, I’d stay away from trying to match a shirt to the color of the flowers — too matchy-matchy for me, especially since I’m usually drawn to neutrals. Maybe a nice gray sweater set — the kind of gray that has pink undertones — with some simple pearls and nude-for-me shoes. It’s available at Ann Taylor for $84.88, marked down from $98; with an extra 40% off sale items (no code needed), it’s $50.93. Ann Taylor Statement Floral Jacquard Pencil Skirt
