I love getting the most use out of my dresses by layering shirts or sweaters over them (exhibit a & exhibit b). And since my search for the perfect little black flared skirt has thus far been unsuccessful, I decided to “create” my own with a dress I’ve had sitting in my closet for months. It was an easy solution for happy hour with friends & the ideal pairing for this new BaubleBar necklace – my absolute favorite yet from them! With a cool vintage feel, it’s great worn alone against a simple tee for daytime or layered with other pieces for an evening-worthy statement (bonus: it’s under $45!).
