Car Wash Skirt

File this skirt under: most fun piece of clothing to wear ever. 

It is appropriately named the ‘Car Wash’ skirt and couldn’t be more fun shimmy in. How fun is the movement on it when you walk!? I love how Bekka captured it swishing.

Tibi Car Wash Skirt I wit & whimsy

I’m not one for boring pencil skirts. I don’t own any. I’m much more inclined to find a skirt that can take you from your desk to drinks and has a more interesting component to it (and I got so many compliments on it at work!) Other examples include lace or a a bold color or a cool asymmetrical hem (I rounded up 15 cool skirts below for your shopping pleasure!)

When we shot these photos I had an early appointment uptown and Bekka and I had so much fun shooting in Central Park in the prettiest morning light. I’ve never experienced Central Park so calm and peaceful in my life. I mentally noted to make early morning visits there more regular.

Cut Out Shoulders

How was your weekend? Mine was eventful…to say the least. I was at Governors Ball out on Randall’s Island for a client of mine and while it involved a lot of work, I also indulged in good food and…got shit on a bird HAHA. I would have most likely freaked out more had I not had an extra shirt in my bag (#prepared) so I had to laugh because there had been plenty of stress involved in the event and then that happened. Sometimes you have to roll with the punches (and then buy yourself this.)

wit & whimsy I tibi cut out dress I aquazzura heelsI’ve long been a fan of Tibi (historical references part I, part II and part III) and when I saw this dress on sale I knew I had to snag it because of the twist on the LBD it offered. It’s a fun dress that can go from work to drinks. I don’t know about you, but I am way into the off the shoulder trend this season (evidenced here.) I keep wanting to buy off the shoulder dresses / tops and this dress has a similar feel that is a bit more work appropriate.

And a POSA that if you haven’t recently checked out the SHOP portion of my site – I’ve been updating it with loads of on-trend, wear-now pieces ready for perusal!
