JCPenny Coat (old) \ Zara Sweater \ F21 Skirt (DIY) and Bag \ Express Flats
You know those days when you have the perfect top and shoes you've paired together and can't find a neutral skirt? This is when a gold skirt comes in handy plus it adds a luxe feel to any every day outfit. So, when I saw this gold mini out of the corner of my eye, I grabbed two and had my tailor add it on to increase the length! Of course, soon after shopping online did I find a few modest options. If you crave one you can get 'em sans tailor. Woot, woot.
Start by measuring the trim for the front of the top, one side to the other. (Apply the trim in sections first in front then on the back.) Cut, then apply the glue to the ends and press in place. (Be careful to apply the trim on a flat surface and make sure no material is getting bunched.) I layered three strips on top of another spacing them two inches apart to my desired length. If you want a shorter peplum then two rows will be just fine. Done!
