style: the perfect black mini

Prairie chic 1
Joe Fresh Camouflage Sweater Joe Fresh Ponte Pleat Skirt 1

These two pieces from Joe Fresh are rockin' my boat lately. The black mini skirt is a bit shorter than I would normally wear, but I figure that when worn with tights it's not as scandalous. Did I mention it has pockets? It truly is the ultimate staple -- suitable for almost any occasion, super chic and dare I say, sexy even. I've been wearing it with my ankle booties almost every weekend since I bought it. And the sweater? What's not to love about a soft and comfy camoanimal print (try saying that ten times).

This picture was taken at a random farm outside of the city. I desperately needed a change of scenery a few weeks ago, so Scott and I went for a spontaneous drive in the country. We stopped and trespassed through a farmer's field to get near the hay bales, but only for a few minutes because I was scared we'd get caught. My idea of living on the edge. Well that, and wearing a hat in public.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you, Jess! There's a good chance you're going to see me in this outfit when you come to visit in November. Just pretend you've never seen it (;

  2. LOL I love this look and the fact that you stopped in the farmer's field to take the photo. I've wanted to do that forever and have never had the guts.

    Great hat!

    1. Thanks, Sarah! It was totally worth it. Although, I almost peed my pants every time a car drove by us.

    1. You definitely should get one, Julienne! It'd look fantastic on you. Plus, the pockets will hold plenty of snacks for your babes.

      p.s. Let me know when you've joined the "trespassing for style pics" club.

    1. The pockets sold it for me, Rachel. I like to go to Superstore/Loblaws on my lunch break, too. Where else can you pick up a salad & sandwich and a black mini? Happy shopping!

  9. Ahhh! I've been looking for a good black skirt and can't believe this one is from Joe Fresh! P.S. I've always wanted to shoot an outfit on/beside/under a hay bale :)
