Brown Bag It

Happy Columbus Day lovebugs.  Most of Washington has off today but alas, I'm at work.  I hope you're sleeping in right now and have big plans to do absolutely nothing.

Today I thought we would look at a trend that I'm really loving right now: paper bag waist.  It's a great way to add interest to the mid section of an outfit and hide anything you want to in that area.

There are so many details going on with this skirt but they all work together beautifully: color, slanted pocket, waist, mini length.

You know I'm a sucker for dots.  I'd pair these with some tights for a Friday night out!

I love this skirt. So beautiful and you can wear it all year round.

J Crew, Heather lace mini, $50
Beautiful lace in a neutral gray. This would be really special with tights.

What do you think of the paper bag style waist? I think it's something a little different then the plain waistline.  

Be fabulous today!


  1. I think you + I may be the only Washingtonians behind a desk today...

  2. I love it!! I have a few skirts with this style and they are fabulous!

  3. This look is so flattering! I LOVE that Asos skirt! xo Lisa

  4. i LOVE them, every one I've tried is always so comfortable too!

  5. I worked Monday as well : /

    I DO like paper bag waists...but for some reason only on skirts. I think they look awkward on shorts, but I really couldn't tell you why!

    My favorite is probably the first skirt : )


Hey lovebug! Thank you so much for you comment. I just loved spending time with you and I hope you come back again soon! TCB.
