fluted skirt.

This outfit is another schooling (see June's pencil skirt post) in not putting your separates in a box. I bought this fluted skirt last year for an interview at a trendy startup, so it's pigeon-holed in my mind as pseudo-corporate, and I have trouble remembering to wear it casually. But for a sunny lunch with my dad on Father's Day, I wasn't feeling jeans and impulsively paired it with a basic tank to switch it up. With the top tucked in, the two pieces looked like a sweet little dress, making for an easy transition into the balmy evening.

If you don't have a fluted skirt, get one now, girlfriend! The silhouette is super flattering for someone with hips, and it's a little flirty, but still a conservative length and age-appropriate. This J.Crew one feels really well-made and I anticipate wearing it for years to come. Now that I've realized its versatility, it's as essential to my wardrobe as a tailored blazer or white pocket tee.

If I'd really been on top of it, I would've added a pop of color with some Essie Clam Bake—one of my favorites. Hope you're enjoying the short holiday week! Seriously reeling that it is already the Fourth of July!
