WIWW: Sassy, Flirty and Fun

Happy Wednesday. Last week's outfits have no discernible theme at all except that they made me feel sassy and flirty and fun. Especially, of course, the skirts. I'm really into the ruffled skirts right now, and I love how the style has an element of playfulness while still being totally wearable even at 40-something. Or maybe I'm kidding myself. But they FEEL wearable, and I guess that's what counts, isn't it?

Wednesday's ootd

Last Wednesday's OOTD: These papaya jeans from J. Crew are getting a real work-out this spring. I love them so much I'm considering splurging on a second pair in another color. J. Crew has come out with a similar jean style in a lighter-weight fabric that features a little zipper at each ankle. Those come in a wide array of colors and I tried some on in-store this weekend and loved them but couldn't for the life of me decide what color I liked. I'm still pondering to this day.

Friday's OOTD: What could be more appropriate for a park date with my little guy than a gingham shirt? A bright, fun, colorful, comfortable outfit with a touch of whimsy. Just like my date himself!

Ruffled skirt - Garnett Hill

All ready for date night.  I even white stripped my teeth.  Fancy!  ;)

Saturday's Date Night Outfit - We went out for drinks and dinner and then had coffee and enjoyed some music at a piano bar close to the restaurant. I felt so great in this outfit. The skirt is just SASSY, but I think the black top grounded it a bit and kept it age-appropriately understated.

Black silk Henley top - Victoria's Secret
Lace skirt - Garnett, on major sale right now
Patent and animal print belt - Talbot's
Black heeled pumps with gromet and bow embellishment - Circa by Joan and David
