The Secret To Faking Curves? This Full Skirt!

This fall, one of the many style goals I made was to have more volume! So, when I came across a perfectly adorable pouf-ed-and-patterned mini skirt, I quickly scooped it up. The full skirt trend is all about shape. While simple, a tea-length flared skirt with a cotton button-down blouse can be dramatic.
This particular skirt has a thick waistband, which I love because it gives my straight figure more feminine curves. And to keep that lovely hourglass look, I tucked in my silk blouse but let it spill out just a tad. To top it off, my favorite leather jacket adds a little edge to the otherwise super-sweet ensemble.
Don’t laugh, but I instantly feel more sophisticated and mature when I button my colored shirts all the way to the top. I guess the phrase buttoned-up would definitely apply here. So, what's the most proper, grown-up accessory a girl could own? A watch, of course, with a brown leather strap no less. I'm keeping with the neutral palette with my purse and shoes, too. Before the weather gets too cold, I'm pulling this skirt out every chance I get.
