PhotobucketGlam-Bam, Thank You, Ma'am!: Fool-proof outfit (aka, my current obsession)

Fool-proof outfit (aka, my current obsession)

Recently, I have been craving a chic, simple outfit, that doesn't scream "old lady" or, perhaps even worse, "trying too hard." Well, epiphany hit, and although this seems like a no-brainer, I swear it didn't occur to me how simple and chic--not to mention easy--this outfit really is. And the best part? I guarantee all of you have these sitting in your closet right now.

What you'll need:
-Simple knit tank, in a sheer white.
-Black pencil skirt, knee length, either high-waisted, or jack it on up.
-One of mom's old belts that magically fit her when she was your age, but now that we wear our pants down to our asses...well, you know the rest.

Seriously, all you do is tuck that tank top into the skirt, and if it's not high waisted, pull it up to right past your belly button, and belt it where the waistband is. Add heels, and some intricate gold jewelry, and you'll look so chic, you won't believe it. Honestly, it's unexpected gold.

My favorites for this look:

I agree with you, it's so easy to ignore simple outfits and I can image this would look great, although I think I might hoick up the skirt just so that it's a bit shorter and maybe add a cardy for my own twist!

But those shoes..oh, those shoes!

Hey P!!
It's been so long since I've read your blog!
Might I add that I love being granny-chic... or is that totally "out" and "non-fashion-y"?
I'm loving stoles and ugly floral print, and woven belts and ankle boots. OH GOD.

Anyway, I'm gonna call you soon.
I need to update my blog, goodness.
And I need an update from you too!
You still going to MI? Save up for P-town in the summer!
Love, Baby P
