You may remember this skirt from the 12 Days of Christmas series when we featured Dainty Jewell’s. As mentioned in that post, Dainty Jewell’s is one of my favorite online boutiques. I am a HUGE fan of their items and their brand. Whenever I wear their items I receive a ridiculous amount of compliments and questions as to where I purchased the item. Case and point, this skirt! I wore this look to church last Sunday and received SO many compliments from women of all ages and many asked where they could get one for themselves. P.S. this is not sponsored, I just really love the brand and think y’all will as well {if you haven’t checked it out}! 

Anyways, last time I styled the skirt I dressed it up for a special event {Christmas party, at the time} and now I wanted to share how to dress down the item, for every day wear.
