I’ve worn a variation of this outfit once before, but it was geared more for summer. With fall literally around the corner, as in tomorrow (I cannot even contain my excitement) I paired this beautiful skirt with a long sleeve chambray top instead of the sleeveless. I just love it and apparently everyone else did too because I got a lot of compliments. These skirts are so easy yet look so dressed up (I say “these” because yes I have a second one). I found them on BooHoo and they have a lot of different styles, plus it was really inexpensive. I love simple outfits that look really put together. The other good thing about this skirt is all the options you can wear with it because it has so many colors in the print. Perfect for all seasons!
How cute is this midi skirt?! I wasn’t sure if it was too circus tent-y, but I couldn’t get it out of my head from the moment I saw it. I decided it was too fun not to buy. I wore it to work but it would also be great for dress up events like brunch, a bridal shower, or a birthday party.
I paired it with my sleeveless chambray top and my rose gold heels, you know for a little pop, because a bright yellow skirt needs more pop…
I got so many compliments on this outfit from the minute I walked in the door at work! I just loved it! Probably one of the best parts about it is how inexpensive the skirt is. I got it half off on BooHoo.com. I’m excited to see what other looks I can make with it. Check it out!
Yesterday my old roomie/best friend/sorority sister/and the.B.Law style panelist Heather and I started a month long challenge. In this challenge we are on wallet lockdown. There will be no purchasing of unnecessary items ESPECIALLY clothing. We also have to wear a different outfit everyday with no repeats, creating new looks with the clothes we already have in our closets. Now to be honest, 30 days of new outfits doesn’t fully intimidate me. I am not one for outfit repeating and I know Heather isn’t either. There are days though where I wake up late and just go for something safe, that I know works. This challenge is starting off at a month to make me be creative everyday and could very well continue to an additional month. We will see!
Anyways, today is day 2 and here is my look! I saw this embroidered, button up, striped, bell sleeve top and thought it was weird yet I was strangely fascinated by it. I literally walked back up to it in Target two more times after I first saw it. I remembered a skirt from BooHoo I wanted and thought it might be the perfect pair for this top. I left and didn’t buy it. I had to see if I would still think about it after I left (that is how I really know I want something). I looked up the skirt again on BooHoo and was sold. I ordered the skirt and went to Target the next day to get the shirt. Well the skirt came in and was entirely too small so I had to make an online return, which honestly I have always been terrified to make for some odd reason but it turned out to be so easy that I felt silly. FINALLY I got the new skirt it and it fit! Note about the skirt, it does not stretch so although it may fit around your waist your leg spread really isn’t all that wide. Not that you should really need it to be but its not, and I walk fast and I don’t feel like my legs have the proper speed potential. That sounds totally ridiculous and can totally go off in a bad direction so moving on… The color of the skirt isn’t quite the same pink as in the embroidery but I really like it together. Check it out below!
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did nothing and it was great. Definitely got some much needed sleep. Can you believe it is already July 10th? This year has gone so fast and I feel like I can’t catch up. Pinterest is already suggesting fall outfits. Don’t get me wrong, I have said countless times that fall is my favorite season, but part of the love is the anticipation. Me, patiently waiting for the first day that I see leaves on the ground and the first day I get to wear a sweater and boots. This year though it feels like I may blink and it will be here.
Anyways, sorry about my tangent. Today’s look has been a long time coming. I bought this top a while ago from Target and had this great idea to pair it with high waist black pants. It took some time to find a pair I liked. Well honestly not too long, I found some with a sash tie waist at Express but kept waiting for a sale and it never happened. I was browsing Boohoo recently and saw some that were similar and would do, AND they were only $20.
The two pieces paired together perfectly! The top is great because although it is sleeveless it is still work appropriate which helps with this heat lately! Check it out and find the items linked below:
