I have had this skirt for a long time now, and this is only the second time I wear it!! For some reason, this skirt looks sorda blaa hanging in my closet so I never really wear it. For the 4th day of my Black is Chic Challenge, I thought it would be a good idea to finally wear this skirt... and guess what? Now I love it!

This skirt is exactly what I need to make better work outfits! I love the way it shows off my curves without making me look too big. I especially like today's professional outfit because of the pattern mixing and the gorgeous teardrops necklace. I'm soooo happy to have transformed this skirt from blaaa to fabulous!

Have you ever had an item that just gets lost in your closet, and when you try it on again you are surprised to see its fabulous?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this floral top:

  8. Fabulous is a good word for this outfit. The bold pink belt matches perfectly with your gorgeous shirt. Also the neckless adds lots to this fabulous outfit. You look great. jsm
