Summer Style

My favorite fashion staple this summer is the midi skirt. This high waisted, knee length skirt is the perfect piece to mix up your wardrobe and lets you take advantage of all those crop tops you’ve been hoarding in your closet! As with most unique fashion trends, I was a bit hesitant to try this look because of the length of the skirt, but you never know how something will work out until you try it! I was pleasantly surprised to find how versatile and easy this skirt was to style without making me look too matronly.

Style Tips: Like pattern mixing, bright color pairing is the thing to do this summer! Don’t be afraid to mix bright pinks and reds like I did here, as long as the color is broken up with a neutral, you won’t look like you’re on your way to a crazy Valentines Day party ; )

I’m all about details and the sheer paneling accents in this skirt elevate your look to make it appear more elegant without looking too formal. Wear with colored or patterned flats and a jean jacket for a daytime look or with heels and a leather jacket/blazer for the evening.

One of my favorite aspects of this outfit is that most of the pieces featured in this look were all under $20! You’re never too old to find style steals and H&M and Forever 21 are still my go-to stores to find fashionable items and I never feel like im sacrificing style for price.

Adding a beige ruffled clutch to this look mixes up the textures and plays up the neutrals.

I love finding fun statement necklaces to add some interest to the neckline. This piece I found at H&M for only $7! The jewel tones and light pink rope detail add a vintage feel to my outfit.

What’s not to love about hot pink strappy sandals? Victoria’s secrect is my “secret” online shopping destination for shoes where you can find high quality and comfortable heels for great prices. The bright color is so perfect for summer and spices up any outfit!

Summer here in Cali has been a bit windy, but all the more reason to twirl around and show off my favorite new skirt! : )
