Black and Classy Outfit

DSC01713

Finally! An outfit post! I have trying for weeks but it hasn’t worked out. We have been super busy. Our Family’s “Barn Boutique Sale” was this past weekend and everything revolved around that for two weeks leading up to it. Plus, we have had my little niece and nephew (4 and 3) a lot. They are such sweeties and I have enjoyed having them around! They call me “toria” because my name is a bit of a mouthful. Reminds me of when my siblings were little and couldn’t say my name either.

I wore this to an eye appointment and you might notice that I am not wearing my glasses! I got contacts! I am slowly working my way up to wearing them. This morning was really hard, my eyes were all dry for a while. And I thought I had put the contact in inside out. LOL! Wearing contacts is a bit of an art and takes some practice and getting used to.

I love this outfit! It is just so effortless, but so put together and classy at the same time.

I had a lot of fun with my hair. These crown braids took a little extra work, but they were so worth it! They lasted great all day and I just loved them! I am hoping to doing a video tutorial on them soon!

I got this skirt from E-shakti. I have been looking for a black high-waisted gathered skirt for a long time. Like, several years. I also wanted to make one, but that didn’t pan out. I couldn’t find the right weight of fabric, so I bit the bullet and purchased this from E-shakti. I couldn’t be happier! They aren’t paying me to say this, but I love this skirt! Is a definite staple in my wardrobe and it goes with pretty much everything. You can pair it with a floral, stripes, solids, flannels. . . you get the idea. It is also a good weight that it can cross over from winter to summer. You can find it here and if you click here you get $30 off your first order! Here are two that are similar. They might seem a bit pricey, but the quality is fabulous and the customer service great. I ordered the wrong size and they paid the shipping back for a return and I received the right size. They want to make sure that you love what you get and that it fits perfectly. With the $30 off you can get one of these skirts for actually a decent price.

  1. I love that hair, and your nail color. When I saw the outfit I was like, “Oh, that’s cute- wait- flip flops?” I thought it was funny just because flip-flops aren’t necessarily what I would consider classy… Completely something I would wear though!

  2. That is SUCH a cute outfit! I love high-waisted skirts – particularly ones with pleats. 🙂 Congratulations on getting contacts! I’ve considered it, but my grandmother has terrible problems with hers, and it’s scaring me :P. I like my glasses anyway 😉

    • Thanks Aria! Everyone has a different reaction to contacts. One brother can’t wear them, but the other can. And once you get used to them, they aren’t bad! If they work for you that is. I like my glasses too. I will probably end up doing half and half.
