Parade of Skirts- January Recap

January was a productive sewing month; I sewed seven skirts over three weekends: 2- navy blue, 1- camel color, 1- camel & black, 2- black and 1- black & white hound tooth.
The photo on the left; I am wearing the houndtooth skirt. Can I tell you how much I love this skirt. This is how I will wear it on casual Fridays at work.
The photo to the right is an example of how I will wear the same skirt on date night; depending on where hubby and I are going I can wear fabulous gladiator shoes or strappy sandals and up my make-up game.

 Here I'm  showcasing the black skirt. In both photos I am wearing a blouse that has been in my closet for a long time. I love this look because I can wear it to work and add a jacket on the days when my job duty requires me to go to court or I have to meet with representatives from X, Y or Z company or corporation.
I will say my work environment is relax ( when you are not dealing with the public) casual business to conservative ( dealing with the public or going to court).

Below are photos of the seven skirts. Yes, January was a productive month.
