I picked the Andes Skirt because I loved the pattern and the high-waist/pencil shape to it was so cute! Living in Hawaii, I was a little curious if it was going to be practical for me, as my style has definitely been more casual over this past year. But, when it came, I was in love! It is nice and lightweight, making it great for warm weather. You could also wear it with tights or leggings, making it a great transitional or layering piece, as well.
The first time I wore it was to an educational conference in Kona with my new principal. I wanted to make a good impression - I think I nailed!
I paired it with a mustard colored cotton top and coral sandals. Since the conference was in an air-conditioned room, I threw on a neutral sweater. It was perfect! The fabric is so soft and the high waist didn't bother me as I sat in meetings all day.
The next time I wore it was this week to school!
This time I paired it with an orangy top, a green military jacket, different coral sandals (I'm obsessed with sandals!), and a low bun. I got so many compliments at school! It was great for walking around the classroom, even sitting on the carpet with kids. The *only* trouble I had was I had to do a little hop to get into my car because the opening of the skirt near my knees is a little small. It wasn't a huge problem, though.
