The Quick Turnaround: One Skirt, Two Ways

I wanted to create a casual sort of look for those summer days when there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day; something that could go from running around town to dinner with friends in one fell swoop, eliminating the last minute getting ready frenzy that often culminates in not having enough time to dry your hair, put on a fresh coat of makeup, or (forgive me) brush and floss.

And it just so happens I have been watching a lot of tennis lately (recurring theme alert).  I love the classic, preppy inspiration of the tennis court and the influence it has had on fashion over the years.

As is often the case, I had some stuff in my closet already that enabled me to put together the kind of look I was envisioning. Go figure.  Apparently I should do this more often.

So.  A classic, preppy, runnin' around doin' stuff summer look for day.








Lacoste sleeveless polo, Limited poplin skirt (old), H&M belt, LaRedoute leather sandals

And to transition to night, simply add cardigan, lose belt, add heels, and a piece or two of bling of your choice. Done.  Changing time elapsed = 1 minute 42 seconds.








Skirt and polo as before, Neiman Marcus cashmere cardigan (old),  Tahari shoes (old), Kenneth Jay Lane animal bangle

    1. It is a rimmel polish, one of the small ones...not sure if it was limited edition or not. I picked it up last year. I know L'oreal makes a similar one.
