Snakeskin Maxi Skirt | The Style ScribeCan you believe it’s already Labor Day Weekend? This summer just flashed by, don’t you think? Yesterday I hopped on a flight out to Salt Lake City for the weekend, so follow along with my adventures in Utah by tuning into my Instagram. The cooler weather and beautiful, mountainous landscape will provide for some gorgeous photos for the blog, I’m sure! I actually packed a few sweaters, a jacket and boots for the trip – the lows at night hit around 60, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about that. It’s a nice escape from the miserable Texas heat!

Now onto the outfit – you may remember seeing this Abi Ferrin skirt before. I’ve actually worn it twice before on the blog since I bought it several years ago! It’s really been a timeless item in my wardrobe, which I wouldn’t have guessed when I first purchased it. It makes quite the statement, but it’s been super versatile. It’s also very comfortable, so you can imagine why I’m constantly reaching for it in my closet. It’s been a wonderful transitional piece for me – it provides a taste of fall without being overly heavy while we’re still riding out the heat here in Dallas. I’ve worn it with sweaters, turtlenecks, tanks, crops, you name it! This time, I paired it with my favorite summer crop top and some neutral + gold accessories. Some new jewelry I’m dying to share with you includes this chevron ring set and this solitaire ring set (Tori and Mae, respectively), both by Gorjana. Aren’t they gorgeous? Wear them together as a set or separately – either way, they look understated and elegant. I personally love to mix and match with my other gold jewelry! I’m clearly still attached to my Brandy Pham needle bracelet. It’s the best!

Every woman needs a good pair of pants in her closet. A classic style and fit like the pixie pant is ideal for transitional dressing, whether it’s from day to night or from summer to fall! I typically think of work when I hear “pants” unless the word “leather” comes first - anyone else? Old Navy’s array of chic pixie pants has reinvented the word for me. Not only do they come in a bunch of pretty colors and prints, but they also have tall, regular and petite lengths to give each lady her perfect fit. I obviously selected the tall style! I wanted to share a few ways I’ve styled pixies and how they’re taking me from work to weekend with ease – let me know what you think and shop each outfit below! PS – head over to Refinery29 today to see my feature with Old Navy!!

LOOK 1 — FRIDAY – WORK

When I have meetings with a potential collaboration partner or brand, I want to look chic as a way to represent my blog, but also put together and sophisticated enough so that they take me seriously. While I love to make my outfits more fashion forward (and sometimes a little wild) for a night out, my daytime looks are much more subdued. Even when working in a creative field like interior design, consulting or anything tech-related, you want to show that you will put your best foot forward when working with that person – for me, that means dressing professionally, being polite, and wearing a confident smile. Shop my work look below!

Old Navy Hi-Lo V-Neck Sweater (I ordered the tall style in this sweater too – love the length!), Old Navy Pixie Pants, Smythson Tote (on sale!! also love this neutral color), Old Navy T-Strap Sandals, Kate Spade Sunglasses c/o, Ippolita Ring, Nicola Bathie Necklace

LOOK 2 – SATURDAY – NIGHT OUT

For a night out, I like to incorporate more color into my outfit – I’m certainly not opposed to standing out in a crowd, and a punchy pop of red is just the ticket! For a night out in the coolest part of Dallas (aka Deep Ellum), I wanted to make the outfit slightly edgier than I normally do, so I pulled out this light New York tank. For an even bolder look, I topped the ensemble off with a matching red blazer and a bright red lip. Black heels and a simple clutch level everything out, don’t you think? Shop my Saturday style below!

LOOK 3 – SUNDAY – PICNIC

I often like to spend my Sundays trying something new, whether that’s a new recipe, a fun activity or a new exercise class. The Dallas Arboretum is such a beautiful spot, even if they don’t have an exhibit or display going on, so I thought it would be the perfect place to visit! During the summer, it’s a great spot to go for lunch – whether you bring your own picnic or visit their restaurant, Degolyer. I picked up a cute picnic basket, packed my Calypso blanket (thanks Dori!) and snacks, and then I headed out the door! Old Navy’s pixie pants were a clear choice for this outing, since they are so soft and comfortable – easy to lounge in, even when you’re on the ground! Shop my casual daytime look below.
