Skirt, another Australia purchase … some darling boutique in Melbourne

Today, I gave a presentation to a group of women who work for the federal government. The topic was “professional dressing on a budget,” a subject close to my heart. They seemed to enjoy it, although I did catch some snoozers toward the end!
Anyhoo, I wanted to look slightly buttoned-up but not TOO conservative. And so we have this quirky little ensemble, complete with yet another Australia trip purchase. I swear I didn’t wear them two days in a row on purpose!
I realized just recently that a belt worn underneath a top layer – such as a cardigan or blazer – can still do wonders for waist definition. I figured since the belt is mostly masked, it’d be useless. Not so! And I felt both defined and polished once I added this skinny belt to the mix.
