Day 24: lift & tuck

How to turn a pencil skirt into a mini skirt: lift, tuck under a sweater, and secure with a belt. 

Oh you already knew that nugget of information? 
Well how about this revelation - watch out for the back slit... you're welcome

Only 1 more week of my 30X30 Fall Challenge, and I can't believe I haven't had to put on a heavy jacket yet! Although, as I am currently running a little low on 30X30 inspiration, I might have to start wearing coats exclusively.... good life plan, huh?!

  4. Yeeaaahhhhh... this summer I bought a maxi skirt at Targs that's got a back slit, and I thought I was being all cool and resourceful and pulled it up over my chest and belted it like a dress, but Boyfriend about died laughing because when I turned around you could see my entiiiiiiire bootay. Thank God we hadn't left the house yet. I retired from being resourceful.
