Bring Me A-Line (See Jane Wear)


BCBG skirt, Zara turtleneck, H&M belt, necklace from small LA boutique (?), UO shoes

I don't often post work outfits on here.  Why?  Well, they're sort of boring, consist of a lot of black, and I do a lot of traveling so sometimes comfort takes precedent over anything else.  I have my good days, but truth be told, I don't always look as stylish as say, Anh, at work. 

This particular skirt is probably a little too short for the workplace, but I'm a big believer that if you cover your legs with tights, you can get away with a lot more.  (I suppose that's just the rule breaker in me.)  Plus, wearing a turtleneck seems cancels out any sort of inappropriateness that a short skirt might convey.  Tip:  if you want to be taken seriously at a meeting, wear a turtleneck and glasses. 


Have a great weekend!

  5. This is SO something I would wear to work! I love it! And I agree with you whole heartedly, haha if something borders on inappropriate (usually too short) I try to balance it by wearing flats or a modest shirt! I figure it's all about balance! Haha! And loving this pale skirt with the black! Gorgeous combo!

  8. I have a very similar outfit I wear to work. My skirt is a tad bit longer in my version, but I have some skirts that are this short that I wear to work. I agree. The tights make it ok.

  13. I agree- add tights and you are good to go for a lot of things.

  14. Oh yeah, tights solve all the world's short-skirt dilemmas in my opinion! I also have a thing with clothes I used to wear to work (when I went to my social work job). Even if I loved a pair of trousers, I just could never bring myself to wear them any time other than work. Now that I don't go to that job anymore, they just sit there all sad and rejected...I need to remix them! You've inspired me.

  15. I love your necklace, doll! And I completely agree -- tights make things infinitely more appropriate, and I love how you've balanced it all with a turtleneck. Plus, this particular pair of tights looks so warm... I desperately need to get some so I can start breaking out my skirts again! Have a fab weekend!

  16. Love the whole look, especially the light colored skirt! I agree, I think shorter + tights = get away with more.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  18. Oh this is so cute Anna Jane!! Okay and kinda crazy...I've got a taffeta skirt (same kinda shape/little shorter) and am trying to find a sassy striped top to wear w/it for the wedding this weekend. I opened your pic and was like whoa!! Love it!

  30. I love the outfit! I too don't post work outfits that often (though one is scheduled to post on Monday). They certainly can be boring!

    The color of that skirt is perfect.

  31. I definitely agree that tights and a turtleneck cancel out the length of the skirt. I love your skinny belt!

  37. If you are can not repay the money, anyone who co-signs for your
    loan becomes responsible to the payments not fake instead of lowering your monthly obligations and trying to pay back a loan over 48 months or longer, you could be required to
    spend the entire sum in three years.
