Chic Swap: Summery Skirt Look

I wasn't planning on doing another "Chic Swap" post for awhile (not that I intended to wait any certain period of time), but with temperatures hitting the high 90's (and even low 100's...ick), I'll probably be wearing quite a few skirts this week. Here's what I wore to work today:

*Lost the jacket, swapped the red top for a cooler, white tank, and added a woven leather belt to complete the look*

...and what I wore to dinner with my SO...

You may be thinking I'm crazy to wear the jacket in the first shot (even if it's linen), but don't worry, I only wore it inside. I'm a firm believer in the power of layering. :) Also, that Cole Haan daytime clutch I wanted awhile back would probably have been more appropriate, but when you're rushing out the door, you don't have much time to swap everything. Hey, I'm certainly not embarrassed of my Chanel!

Red, Leaf-Patterned Skirt: J Crew
Red Top: Banana Republic
Linen Jacket: Banana Republic
Linen Peep-Toe Pumps: Banana Republic
White Tank: Banana Republic
Woven Leather Belt: Banana Republic
Purse: Chanel

Hmm...I'm sensing a trend here. As you can tell, I love BR for quality, comfortable work clothes.

Hey Trendini - they're awesome and so versatile!

Thanks Frasypoo!

Hey Looks to Love - I know what you mean, but it's who you really are, not who people perceive you to be that counts, right? :) Congrats on getting the Chanel!

That is one fabulous skirt! I esp. like the dinner version with the belt.

Are you overseas Catlin? If not, I think they ship all over the US.
