Outfits recap – July 2014

outfits comment

Goodbye, July! The weather was much nicer around these parts which meant more opportunities to wear dresses! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dresses are so versatile and perfect for those mornings when you’re running late or seem to not have anything to wear. Which outfit was your favorite?

Most the times, when I wear a skirt, I dress it up and make it appropriate for work or more formal social gatherings. But, today, I’d thought I’d change things up a bit and dress down this skirt. I love the combination of pink and gray, and with neon being quite the trend this season I started with this soft tee. Keeping it simple due to the bright top, I paired it with this striped skirt and bright white canvas shoes gives the look a more sporty feel. Of course, I couldn’t do without an accessory so I paired it with this simplistic pink pearl and gold bracelet. Tennis, anyone?

Is it just me or do you try to swirl around while wearing a pleated skirt? I remember, as a child, I used to be so fascinated by the way the fabric spun. During a recent shopping trip to J.Crew, I saw this navy pleated skirt on the rack and immediately knew I had to purchase it. Not only is the navy color classic but the length is perfect – not too short, not too long. I brightened up with outfit with a blush pink knit top that is adorned with gold metallic accents at the neckline. It matched perfectly with my pink and grey colorblock clutch, and gold heels. Do you have a skirt that reminds you of your childhood?

There’s something uniquely different about seersucker fabric. Even in any form of clothing, it always seems to convey an airy, wind-in-your-face-I’m-on-a-sailboat feel. To complement this skirt and its feel, I paired it with a white knit top and gave it some pops of color with the teal clutch. I kept the palette neutral with the black quilted ballet flats and a lighter charcoal-colored necklace.

I hope you’re having a happy Wednesday, and maybe this outfit will inspire your upcoming weekend plans!
