What I Wore | Ruffle Knit Skirt & Plaid Blazer + Kosher Casual Review & Giveaway

What I'm Wearing
Graphic Tee -- Lauren Conrad via Thrift Store (Free)
Plaid Blazer -- H&M ($15)
Brown Ruffly Knit Skirt -- c/o Kosher Casual
Nude Flats -- Steve Madden ($10)
Crystal Drop Earrings -- Lauren Conrad (gift)

Hello lovelies! Why look at this, I'm post yet another outfit post this week. Yay! And I have at least one more planned, it is an outfit that I'm copying from a picture I saw in a magazine -- that will be fun. Anyhow, today to work I wanted to wear something comfy, yet professional for where I'm working. Enter a knit ruffly skirt from Kosher Casual and a plaid blazer from H&M -- the perfect combination for the workplace. Also, instead of going with the traditional button-down blouse, I went instead for the fun creative option and wore a graphic tee shirt. Making this outfit fun & stylish.

I must mention more about Kosher Casual and my ruffly skirt from them, as I'm going to be hosting a giveaway for them at the end of this post, giving y'all the chance to perhaps buy this skirt for yourself (we could then be skirt twins). Anyhow, I worked them last year (I think it was anyhow), and I had picked out a jean pencil skirt that has pockets, yes pockets -- it is awesome. They have a wonderful selection of modest skirts in varying lengths, and their shipping is fairly fast for coming from Israel. 


I'm in love with my knit skirt from them. The knit is a nice thick knit, that doesn't wrinkle nor do you need a slip. If brown isn't for you, there are several other colors for you to choose from: black, purple, navy, etc... I went with brown mostly because I want to copy my sister Hanne-col, who owns a similar ruffle skirt. In case you are wondering about sizing, I decided on a size small after reviewing their size chart -- the skirt fits perfectly (no loose waistband). I was really worried about the sizing, since my waist & hips never match up on most sizing charts, but with the knit fabric (and ruffles) I figured I was safe with a small. 

But enough about the skirt, I'm sure y'all are wondering about this giveaway that I mentioned earlier. Well, one of you will be winning a $25 gift card to Kosher Casual to buy anything you want. Yay! To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below with your favorite thing from Kosher Casual. Once you have done that, you can earn more entires by using the rafflecopter widget.


Rules:: The giveaway is open to everyone, but I'll double check with Kosher Casual. The winner will be emailed once the giveaway ends on August 31th @ Midnight.

  1. Oh, Kosher Casual has a lot of nice skirts! I think my favorite, though, would be the running skirt with built-in leggings. My other one is wearing out, so that would be awesome if I could get a new one! Its perfect for biking, hiking, running, etc!
