Back to reality is quite rough some days, no?

After being out of the office Wednesday-Monday, my alarm this morning was a rude awakening. Alas, now that my eyes are fully open and I’m getting things done, I’m feeling much better. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I was beyond happy to be back in the Midwest for a bit, and grateful to spend time with family and friends. Leaving yesterday was definitely rough, but amazingly I had zero flight issues (thanks Delta!) and slept on both flights (thanks neck pillow!)

I shared this Banana Republic skirt back in October with sneakers, a striped tee and a chambray for a more casual look, so today I wanted to share a way to dress it up. And, you may notice that almost all the items I paired with the skirt (leather jacket, v neck tee, leopard clutch & rainbow necklace) made the cut for my 10 closet essentials list.

I’m trying to shop in my closet, and get even more creative with mixing and matching, so if there are any pieces you want me to specifically remix – let me know.

xo, Maddy
