Do you know those events where you’re a bit unsure of the dress code? We seem to have a party each year where a cocktail dress is a bit much, but jeans just aren’t appropriate. That’s where a sparkly pencil skirt like this one from Shabby Apple can be a lifesaver! It’s dressy on its own, but it’s so easy to pair with a fancy top for more formal events, or a casual top like this buffalo plaid flannelÂ (which is on mega sale for only $12 right now by the way!).
I’ve worn it to an event and to church already, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received! And I love that it’s formal enough for a classy party, but also casual enough to wear as a mom. How many times does a handful of applesauce end up on my skirt even if I only wear it on a date night out? I’m learning the era of silk has temporally ended in my life. Skirts like this one that are delicate but not too high maintenance are so my speed right now!
Thank youÂ Shabby AppleÂ for sending me such a great skirt! And now I just need to figure out a way to make sparkly skirts a thing year round so I have plenty of excuses to wear it!
