I saw this spangled skirt earlier in the season in the jade (center, below) and acid pink (far left). While I love a sequin, lately I find them difficult to wear in different ways. As I am in the office five days out of the week, and upwards of ten hours a day, I do not think that a sequin skirt would serve me during my “nine-to-five.” Waking up during the five o’clock hour to be in the office during the six o’clock hour is not conducive to putting a ton of effort into one’s outfit, let alone even hitting hair with a blow dry. When working in a male-dominated industry, I have found that these matters are not even matters at all. Effort is turned down to zero.
So when would I really wear this skirt? Dinner, the ballet, a museum party, and that is about it. Granted we have one of these about twice a month, but with work picking up during the fourth quarter, I barely have enough energy to make the nights out, let alone getting amped for them and consequently putting as much effort into my outfit as I previously enjoyed.
Something clicked in my mind in the last week and now all I can think about is either this skirt in light gold (second to the left) or the bright blue (far right). I would wear either to the office with a Breton stripe tee. I would wear either on the weekends with an oversized cashmere sweater (budget).
Is a sequin skirt going to be my answer to look like I put much more effort into my lewk than I actually did? Maybe it is about time that I start looking like I turned the dial up to twelve?
