Day 8 mixing casual and fancy

I am not crazy about this outfit, but I like it. I think. I wish the colors were a little different but I had to work with what I have and I got to the point where I could not spend any more time in front of the closet. 
 Mixing fancy with casual really got me to think outside the box and I think it will really help me create outfits in the future. I chose a hooded shirt. You don't get much more casual than that.

And I paired it with a pleated skirt and I don't get much fancier than that. I also double belted it so I guess I could have worn it for the last layering accessories challenge. I just needed another color and a belt did the trick.
By the way, this used to be one of my frumpy shirts. Glad to know it can go the other way.
Today I met with some ladies to map out the joy school we will be starting for our preschool age kids. When I say joy school I really just mean a rotating home preschool. It should be great. I really like the ladies I am doing this with. And I know Gracie will love it cause she really wants to go to school.
