Photographing this skirt gave me a ton of trouble, for some reason I had a lot of difficulty getting the maroon color to really pop. The skirt itself comes from Ann Taylor Loft, and is technically labelled as a mini skirt. However, I have shortish legs, so I am able to get a little more coverage out of it. I can't find the exact style, but similar choices are here and here.
I paired the slightly short skirt with an uber-conservative top, so that it is still business appropriate. I also brought in the maroon color in my necklace as well, with a Michael Kors watch being a perfect accessory. (I bought mine on Amazon, the prices were cheaper, and I got free shipping via Prime!)
Finally, the true color of my skirt showed through! I mainly wanted to show off these adorable booties, which are the perfect fun completion to any outfit. I find that maroon works really well with almost any color, and functions almost as a neutral. Plus, these boots are super comfortable, and still give me a height boost! Mine are originally from American Eagle, and you can find similar pairs here and here. (The Old Navy ones are on sale in maroon!)
Partially through the day I decided to start wearing my necklace like this, and I really like how it makes it more noticeable, and a bigger part of the overall style of this outfit! What do you think, does it look better over or under the collar?
