If there is one fashionable piece of clothing that I’d rather not live without, it is a skirt.

Not just any skirt, but a skirt with pockets.

A skirt with which you can put your hands into those much-loved pockets and twirl around and go swish, swish.

A skirt like this lovely, long, black linen number I scored from Anthropologie last week.

It is classy, comfortable. It can be dressed up or dressed down, like I’ve done here by adding a simple, stretchy, black T for only $38 from Free People that I grabbed from a real store this weekend in person.

This outfit, black on black, makes for an easy and stylish Monday statement.

I feel good in it.

I feel stylish in it.

I feel sassy in it (always a plus on a busy Monday). It’s easy dressing.

And I don’t feel like I broke the fashion bank to own it.

Add my gold Big Buckle, lavender Birkenstocks, which I love, and the long, gold Free People earrings I featured a couple of Mondays ago, and I’m ready to stare down this Monday in May.

Comfy, cool, fashionable, affordable, and sassy.

Just how I like my Monday fashion.

This is definitely a skirt I will be wearing often.

As always, this fashion rant and mention of name brands is clearly my own doing. Until those fashion brands come calling. 🙂

What are your favorite go-to fashion pieces for feeling more confident on Monday, Monday?

Are skirts with pockets your thing, too?
