Just Enough Ease

 Jacket: H&M, Skirt: H&M (old), Sneakers: Converse, Accessories: H&M beanie, Karen Walker sunglasses, J.Crew bracelets, Michael Kors watch, BCBG ring (old), Clare Vivier clutch

Happy Monday! While the one hour "loss" of time because of Daylight Savings was a bit of a bummer, I LOVED having sunshine through 6:30pm! It's going to feel so much more like spring and summer with the extra light. 

For me, this weekend was actually "perfect." We hung out with friends, lounged, enjoyed the good weather and my husband surprised me with a lovely date night on Saturday (since we went to a good-bye party for one of his friends on Friday). There was just enough ease throughout the weekend that I felt relaxed rather than overwhelming busy. So this oldie but goody of a sequin skirt dressed down well with my jean jacket and Chucks.


How was your weekend?!

    Thank you so much for the blog comment today!! xoxo

  37. Pretty skirt! I'm so jealous it was warm enough to go bare-legged! I'm dying to wear skirts without tights again! haha

    And I agree about not necessarily liking that we "lost" an hour, but I am also loving the extra daylight! (Plus, now it means I don't have to do all my outfit photos on the weekend and can shoot after work if necessary, yay!)

  49. It sounds like you had such a fun weekend - and you looked fabulous, too! I love the combination of a super feminine and romantic sequined skirt with a denim jacket, Chuck Taylors and a beanie; it makes the skirt look almost casual, and yet the whole outfit has just the right amount of sparkle. Absolutely love it :)
