Yes... It Is A Dress...

I know, I know...
I am a committed member of the...
"Community Of Girls Who Love Skirts."
That will never change.
Are you a member?
But...

It had to be done.
Mostly because (let's be perfectly honest here) I got so many wonderful compliments about the skirt I have in the exact same pattern.  I know I wore the skirt yesterday but today will be spent mostly away from the office.  New faces.  Who will know?

Does anyone else ever do that?

I call this one my "Venice Dress."  You can see the "Venice Skirt" here if you wish.




 



It is quite warm here in Dallas AGAIN today.  The weatherman promised some warmer temps all week and he really delivered.  It has been downright HOT

Fall is supposed to arrive on Saturday.  I am ready.

Since it is a bit warmer I did something that I rarely do... I wore an "open toe" shoe to work. 

If you follow my blog, you know that I just do not do that.

I occasionally make an exception for these wonderful shoes because I think they are just "fancy" enough to be appropriate for work.

In my opinion, sandals can VERY easily be far too "casual" for office wear.

I think these babies "skirt the line" just enough between "casual" and "dress."

What do you think?

In case you are wondering... they are made by Born.

Yes, Born.

You know how much I truly LOVE any shoe from Born.

Simply put... the most comfortable boot I have ever worn.  These shoes are no exception.

I wish that Born would begin making a classic dress shoe.  I just know they would be a staple in my wardrobe if they ever do.  A pair in every color.  A girl can dream.

And the final ensemble...


So were you surprised when you opened my blog today?

I suspect the girls at work will a bit surprised when I walked in.  Complimentary but clearly a little surprised.

You fashionable ladies that read my blog are not the only ones that know that  I am a committed member of the "Community Of Girls Who Love Skirts."

Sometimes I like to keep people on their toes...

BTW... thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and read my blog.  I cannot express my gratitude well enough.  It never ceases to amaze me how sweet my "blogger friends" can be.  I read all of your comments and do my best to return the comment in kind.

Look forward to reading both your thoughts and your wonderful blogs.

Have A Marvelous Day!
