New wardrobe essential alert! This pleated midi skirt is to die for! I was definitely a little wary of a skirt like this…if you believe it, I was worried I would look a little frumpy. After trying it on, I feel anything but! This skirt is SO comfortable and light!
Seriously, my Instagram husband was trying to take these photos and I just kept twirling and jumping around…he had to tell me to keep still…but I seriously just felt so light and carefree in this dress! It’s modest and stylish all rolled into one!
We’re currently in Italy, and wearing this outfit around town was the BEST. It’s adorable, but also super comfortable and light. Perfect for humid days!
I’ve been super into mixing looks lately…mixing girly with athletic especially. Mostly, I can please my girly, frilly tendencies while being super comfortable. Literally the best of both worlds! You can check out my recent post [ HERE ] about mixing these two styles. The more I wear it, the more I love it.
I was definitely a tomboy when I was young…it wasn’t until high school and college that I started getting into fashion and girly details. Even then though, I always love my Vans. These classic Vans are comfortable and give the perfect amount of edginess to this girly look. Once you have the skirt and the sneaks, you can keep everything else super simple! Tank and a simple black crossbody, and you’re done!
I love outfits with statement pieces (like this skirt and/or these shoes), because it really makes the rest of the ensemble so easy to put together! Statement pieces are the fun, season things you buy, while you invest in your staple pieces. Speaking of investing in a staple…this Kate Spade crossbody. The one in these pictures is old, but I linked a bunch of similar ones below. Seriously, the best investment. It lasts and can be worn for years to come.
This trendy skirt is going to be so fun for fall. It can be worn casually like in this post, or it can be dressed up for a fancy holiday party or wine tasting excursion! To dress it up, I would wear simple block heels or sandals [try this Steve Madden sandal or this Block Heel Pump ] with a fancy tank and maybe a structured blazer [ like this Topshop one ]. I’ll link them all below in the widget as well.
SKIRT: BP. NORDSTROM | SHOES: VANS OLD SKOOLS | TANK: BP. NORDSTROM (SIMILAR LINKED) | PURSE: KATE SPADE (SIMILAR LINKED) | NECKLACE: STELLA & DOT | STUDS: STELLA & DOT | CUFF: STELLA & DOT
This look is so adorable, and so much fun! A statement piece like this skirt is something you will NOT regret picking up! If you’re in between sizes on this skirt, size down! It is pretty stretchy at the waist, so better to be a little snug than loose!
Don’t forget to check out my post about sunless tanners and sunscreen [ HERE ] as this summer winds down! And read all about my favorite lounge pants [ HERE ]. I’m also so in love with this girly athleisure look I blogged about a few days ago [ HERE ].
Happy New York Fashion Week! I’m so excited to watch the stories of some of my favorite bloggers who are there!
