outfits style summer

building blocks

skirt: thrifted (originally Talbots/similar) // top: Old Navy (old) // shoes: Steve Madden // scarf: vintage // bag: Forever 21 (similar)

 After a year and a half of documenting outfits on this blog, you’d think I’d recognize a trend in my own outfit building. It wasn’t until the lovely receptionist at my doctor commented on my go-to formula that I realized it: I’m addicted to color-blocking. I think I didn’t notice it because I’m not very attracted to pieces that have color-blocking on them, but it’s a great way to build interesting and cute outfits. The only prints I really wear are stripes and floral, which I usually just pair together or color-block around them. 
How did I not realize how often I do this? Evidence here, here, here, here, here, here…and pretty much everywhere else on my blog.
Anyway, I LOVED this outfit! I put it together to sell things at Buffalo Exchange because I read that they buy more if they like your style. I thrifted this skirt when I was in Houston a couple of weekends ago and have been so excited to wear it. It’s from Talbots and is actually petite, which I was worried about because sometimes pleating on petite skirts fits me awkwardly across the hips. I’m already planning another outfit with it using a tomato red color on top.

How would you style this skirt?

PS. #proudbloggermoment when I got that spinning picture on the first try, all by myself!
