Business Casual Weekend Find: A-line skirt!

I never thought I would write an A-line skirt as being a weekend find but shopping for business casual clothing has been well a bit frustrating!  I have not been able to find a basic black A-line skirt.  Shouldn’t be hard to find right? Wrong! Even my go-to workchic fave stores & boutiques seem to have been caught up in the pleated, printed and frilly miniskirt trend this season. Nothing is wrong with them but if you work in a more business or business casual environment or even if you   are like myself that has reached the late 30’s age bracket..the maxidress is more of a viable option to wear than a miniskirt!

On the hunt for that perfect skirt, I wandered into a J. Crew store in New York City this past weekend and spotted a classic A-Line or Fluted skirt silhoutette in basic black nonetheless!    For $118, this Fluted style in 120s Australian Merino wool will be a staple item to add to my basics in my work wardrobe.   I can dress it up or down with a cardigan or blazer for those last minute business meetings.  I found a button up blouse that is lightweight enough to wear now and wear into the fall.   What do you think?

We would love to hear where you shop for basics for your work wardrobe! Seen any A-line skirts out there?  Leave us a comment or email us at
