It’s time for another Twin Style post with Alice of The Mow Way! Check out our first post from last week here where we styled our favorite cat dress!
For this post, we styled a black mini skirt for a casual afternoon date. Black bodycon mini skirts are my kryptonite. I have more than a couple of these skirts stashed in my closet because I find them to be one of the easiest to wear and most flattering pieces of clothing. For this look, I went with a simple black on black, accenting the look with shades of yellow: in the leopard print of my scarf, the belt buckle, and my bright as hell tights.
Alice brightened up her skirt with some cute florals and an awesome jacket! Though I don’t have a lot of olive/khaki stuffs in my wardrobe, I’ve been looking for a coat like hers for a long time now. I can imagine just tossing it over any outfit and looking oh so relaxed chic! And those boots! Check out her post HERE!
Can we take a moment and talk about boots? I used to dream about owning pairs and pairs of knee and thigh high boots, and, to be totally honest, when booties came into trend a few years back, I pretty much abhorred them. Now, I want tons and tons of booties (am I the only one who laughs whenever I say that?)
I spotted these boots at DSW a couple weeks ago and was on the fence about buying them (the heel is a little too high for me) but while I was trying it on, I caught a sweet, old lady checking out my gams. When she exclaimed that the shoes make my legs look super long, I gave in and bought them. What can I say? I’m a sucker for compliments. After wearing it a few times, I’m acclimating to the heel height, and these pups are actually very comfortable to wear and walk in!
I wore this outfit to a late lunch/early dinner date with B. Since I’m turning into a beer lover, we thought it only appropriate to have our date incorporate that. We’ve been exploring the different craft breweries here in St. Louis, and this time we shared a couple glasses and some yummy dishes at Square One, which is nestled in Lafayette Square. It was soooooo good!
