Today I am oh so excited to participate in my very first link up hosted by Audrey at Putting Me Together! Audrey has challenged her readers to choose one piece of clothing and incorporate it into several outfits…”one piece many ways!”
For my featured item of clothing, I chose a knee-length navy and white printed skirt with an elastic waistband and pockets (who doesn’t love a skirt with pockets?!?). This skirt has been one of my favorite purchases of the summer because it is super comfy! Also, navy is one of my favorite neutrals and I have been having fun remixing it with different tops. Here are a few of the outfits I’ve been wearing!
This first look is a casual, every-day ensemble. This is also one of my first experiments with pattern mixing. I find pattern mixing to be pretty scary because I’m worried I will do it horribly wrong and consequently will look like a crazy person. I think this skirt works with the purple, striped tee because the print on top is big and bold while the print on the bottom is smaller and subtle. What do you think? Does my pattern mixing attempt work for you and why? I’ve added a jean jacket, cognac sandals and my amber necklace to accessorize the look!
I think that my second ensemble would make for a fun summer date-night outfit! I’m wearing a slim-fitting pink tank top and a pink bubble necklace for a monochromatic look. Add some fun printed wedges (mine are covered in tiny pink flamingos), and you are ready for a hot night on the town!
My third and final look can be worn on breezy summer days and into the fall. I will definitely be wearing this outfit to work when I go back to school! I’ve combined my go-to skirt with the ever-versatile chambray shirt. I added the belt to lend a different structure to the skirt and the coral heels for a pop of color!
