Day to Night Series – Black Maxi Skirt + $50 Shopbop Gift Card Giveaway!!








Today is my Friday, and I was so close to accidentally wearing jeans to work today, oops.  I remembered just in time though.  I requested off on today and tomorrow a couple of weeks ago not even realizing it was Labor Day weekend, but a 5 day weekend makes it even better now!  It will be a nice break from work and school for a few days.  = )  We’re still debating on going to the lake, the casinos or just staying in town and getting caught up on life.  What are your plans for the holiday weekend?Thanks for stopping by for the Day to Night Series! Every two weeks I will pick a different item and a different blogger. One person will style it more casually for day, and the other will dress it up for night. This week the item is a black maxi skirt.  Joy from All Things White wore her black maxi more casually for day with a tee, a denim vest, some really cute tortoise sunglasses that I love and a gorgeous bright blue bag (that I need also!)  Make sure you stop by Joy’s blog to see her outfit details.  I wore my black maxi skirt a little dressier this time be pairing it with my favorite J. Crew punk floral printed silk blouse (my favorite J.Crew print to date,) ankle strap heels and a necklace that I won from a local boutique here in Memphis, Ella!  Besides the jewelry and clutch, my entire outfit was bought off of eBay.  I love scoring deals like that!  Keep reading to learn about one of my sponsors this month and to enter the $50 Shopbop gift card giveaway!

I want you to meet one of my blogger friends, Lulu from Simply Lulu Style.  She is a wife, twin mom to her little nuggests (boy/girl twins), HR professional, and oh yeah…a lifestyle blogger!  Simply Lulu Style shares all things fashion, food and a little this and that.  Lulu is so gorgeous and wears realistic outfits that I could wear to work or feel comfortable wearing out without showing too much skin.  She is one of my daily reads, and I love her sense of style.  Lulu is giving away an amazing giveaway to one of my lucky readers today, a $50 Shopbop gift card!  I just hate that I can’t enter.  = )  To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget below.  Good luck and make sure you stop by and say hello to Lulu!

  1. LOVE your night look! This is the perfect way to look classy in an evening maxi skirt. And you really need to teach me your ways on ebay shopping!!

    For the giveaway I think I might pick out a few of the travel items, so cute!


  2. First off love your top with that fabulous maxi skirt and second I love Lulu's blog. You both have such a great sense of style.

    Don't forget to stop by and link up tomorrow, Thursday, for my weekly Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up.


  3. Laura this outfit is fabulous! I wanted that top so bad, and now that I see you got it on Ebay I am totally going to be on the hunt. It looks fantastic with the maxi skirt! Enjoy your long weekend! I can't wait until Friday. This back to school thing is killing me.


  4. I am excited to head "home" and see my family for Labor Day weekend. I am really looking forward to seeing my 94 year old Grammy who is not doing very well.
    I am also going to introduce RD and the kids to Amish country while we are there! My son has been obsessed with whether the women will be wearing bonnets or not. LOL
    I can't wait to follow Lulu's blog as we have that twin Mommy thing in common. Have a good weekend, Laura! –Becky

  5. Great giveaway! I've been wanting a pair of leather D'Orsay flats to transition into the fall season ~ the Jeffrey Campbell 'In Love d'Orsay Flats' are perfect!

  6. I am desperate need of a new purse. I've been using a light pink bag for months and I mean there's only so many times I can pull out the magic eraser to clean up the scratches. Really wanting a dark pink or purple purse for Fall! 🙂 And love that top on you – so so pretty! – JB
