Parisian stripes, floaty tulle, and snakeskin slip ons — the perfect combination for a grey weekend day filled with running around, and a pedicure squeezed in, before the snow could keep us cooped up indoors.
Give me a full skirt and a pair of heels and I’m a very happy girl, but lately I’ve been trying to give some of my flats a little more wear time. I’ve got a new puppy to walk after all, and he’s not able to grasp that running on grass in high heels isn’t as easy at it looks.
There is something so undeniably elegant about mixing black and blue together that it’s hard to believe there was ever a time where the color combination was considered a fashion no-no. It even makes a cropped tee seem a little more pulled together.
The best thing about fashion? It’s always changing. One day I can go dramatic with a full, bold skirt and studded boots, and the next I can choose to keep it simple with high top sneakers and a cotton dress and a denim jacket. It’s all about being comfortable and having fun.
The exaggerated fullness of this midi skirt is what attracted me to it (and the other three colors I’ve subsequently acquired it in), but it’s what also makes it feel overly girlie at times. A textured sweater and studded moto boots bring the right amount of balance when I want a look that’s just a little bit less sweet.
