Up to Par

We had a golf tournament at work today and I was thinking I could do a golf outfit post. You know, shake it up a bit, show my athletic side. Besides, I was rocking some awesome earrings I won from briannelee and it would have been nice to debut them. Unfortunately, it rained and we were soaking wet before we teed off the second hole. It rained on and off all day and by the end of eighteen holes, I was exhausted, drenched and my feets were dyed black from my flats. Not too pretty.
Two highlights of the day included me teeing off and having a wormburner (?) that landed two metres from the hole and I hit my co-worker (technically even one of my supervisors...) in the face with a club. You see, he was being kinda and holding the umbrella over me and I did not see him (really!) and I followed through on my shot (which I missed), hit the umbrella and grazed the side of his cheek. It's funny now, but I'm so glad he's ok. Beside the one good tee-off, I am really terrible at golf. It often takes me 5 swings to even hit the ball, no wonder I'm so tired...
So, no golf outfit post but here's what I wore yesterday.

Skirt? To The Limit (?), thrifted
Shirt? ABS, final Winners sales... super cheap.
Belt? Michael Kors, Winners
Bag? Zara
Earrings? h&m
Shoes? Steve Madden, DSW

I've been looking for a heavy lace skirt like this for a while and my thrifting came through. It's a little big, so I hiked it with a belt but the best part is that it fits comfortably over the bust and can be worn as a dress too. A black turtle neck, some tights and a belt to cinch and this skirt becomes my new favourite dress! Good times!

i think to the limit is max azria's walmart brand. which happens to be quite good, quite often- as in the case of your skirt...
