I was getting dressed for fashion week last Friday, standing in front of my mirror in a white dress and pink shoes. I was worried the white wasn’t particularly slimming and that I’d undoubtedly spill coffee on myself before reaching the Kate Spade presentation. At the last minute, I slipped into this navy-or-nothing ensemble and instantly felt more like myself. Simple? Sure. Predictable? Probably. But I’d choose an outfit that makes me feel my best over one that’s fresh and new ten days out of ten. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Above I’m wearing the same skirt dressed down for running errands around the West Village. I swapped out the silk blouse for a cozy Demylee for J.Crew sweater (this one is super soft and in my favorite color combination — I couldn’t say no) and nixed the wedges in favor of flats, my feet crying tears of relief. I love an item of clothing that can do double duty and I’ve probably worn this skirt fifty times since I bought it. Lucky for you it’s now on super sale in a bunch of colors for less than $40 so scoop one up before it’s too late!

UPDATE: J.Crew is offering 50% off all sale styles with code EASYSALE, making this skirt only $20!!!

  1. Love this outfit! I truly believe that fashion and style are about wearing what you feel confident in; what makes you feel like the best version of yourself. I love that you stuck true to who you are.

  2. OHHH I love this outfit 🙂 I have the same skirt and dying for this sweater 🙂 I was at the opening of a new store in London last night and saw it and almost splurge ….
    It looks so nice on you and I think I would have wore the exact same style for NYFW I am never too comfortable in heels or anything so simplicity is just what I would have gone for!

  3. Hi Mackenzie! Love love the outfi! I normally throw on sweatpants or leggings to run errands, I wish I looked so chic 🙂 was wondering if you could do a review of your HB purse. I love the size and look of it from your pics. Could you also do a what’s in my purse post – those are always my favorite posts and I still love yours from last year!

  4. I wish I wore outfits that cute while running errands! Seems like such a versatile skirt and the sweater is a great match for it. Love the flats too, as I am obsessed with all things perforated! I’ve been wanting to try Madewell’s flats but wasn’t sure if the pointy toes would be comfortable….
