Tank: Gap

Skirt: The Limited

Belt: Came with a jacket from The Limited

Flower: New York & Company

Cuff: New York & Company

Shoes: Baker's Shoes

Today was the last day at my part time job, so of course I had to step up the style a bit. This tulip skirt is a step in a new direction for me. I'm more of a pencil skirt type of girl. Most tulip skirts are too puffy in the hip area to be flattering but this one sticks pretty close to pencil cut - just a tiny flair on the sides and in the front. And I am digging the pattern for going into fall. I see this getting a lot of wear over the coming months!

I was tempted to pile on the necklaces, but kept it simple by accessorizing with a flower, a la Kimberly's August Inspiration calendar. The flower keeps it nice and simple with the tank top.
