Ageless Style: Maxi Skirts & Link-Up

Hello friends and welcome to another installment of Ageless Style, where we showcase real women, from across North America, at all ages and of all body shapes, rocking their styles.  Todays prompt is brought to you by Amy over at Amy's Creative Pursuits.

Let's jump right in!  I am running everywhere this week.  Work and strike sanctions, personal meetings, high school tours and decision making, and packing up for our trip!  It's busy but we are off to Mexico on Saturday/Sunday and I am so excited so until then it will be what it will be.  I will be taking off two weeks off of blogging but you can follow me along on IG.

I am so glad I bought this denim maxi skirt.  It has been such a great addition to my closet and honestly I have now made it work all year long, spring, summer, fall and now winter, see how I styled it here.  I styled it for my nieces/nephews birthday party this weekend.  I think it's super chic with the black turtleneck, little edge with the leather jacket and funk with the sneak skin boots.  It's classic and simply chic, don't you think?

Pink & Red: Valentines Day Office Inspired

Casual Fridays are for jeans at work and I took the opportunity to put together a cute pink and read combination in honor of Valentines Day.  My real Valentines Day will be spent coaching 40+, 13 & 14 year old's at an indoor relay track meet until later into the evening.  That's just fine with me as we don't really make a fuss of V-day around here, but don't mistake that with not taking a moment to acknowledge how much I love my partner and how grateful to have built my life with Logan.  I'll probably get home, we will enjoy a glass of wine and unwind from the day.  Also, I am purchasing a couple of really cute bracelets for the girls from a local vendor because why not.

Skinny Jeans, Red Top, Pink Blazer and Killer Heels.  Let's chat about this cute outfit combination.  I pulled out my skinny jeans for the first time in months because these red heels need to be showcased!!!!  They are amazing and surprisingly comfortable.  Like I wear them at school all day, and I put on a LOT of steps people. I made the shirt a couple of years ago and you can see it styled for a another casual and dressy look here,  and then my favorite Barbie inspired blazer to top it off.  Usually I wouldn't have so many pops of color, but I really think for the occasion it totally words and it's festive.  Check out other Valentines inspired outfits here & here.  

What are you up to for Valentines Day?

Monochromatic Brown Office Outfit

Brown has been going strong since fall and today I showcasing how to play with shades of brown to create a monochrome outfit for a business casual outfit.  I love this light brown, "desert brown", with black spots, blouse.  It's sleeves are cute and flirty, and the fabric is so lovely and blowy that it's perfect for tucking into pants or skirts for a polished business casual look.  These pants were in my teens donation pile and I snagged them and added them to my closet, thank you very much.  I also love my cinnamon brown purse that I received as a gift from Annborsa last year and it's the best quality leather ever.  Add gold jewelry and a lovely white wool coat to polish off the look.  What do you think?

This past weekend, Mr. and I went for a quick getaway just the two of us to our cabin.  It was a much ne4eded weekend for just the two of us and I am so grateful that the girls were able to hang with my parents and their friends.  If you follow along on IG, you know that we read, slept, got outdoors for walks, a long run, and just enjoyed each others company.  I didn't even know we needed it until we were there.  It was BLISS.

What's your favorite monochromatic look to create?
