Let’s just address the elephant in the room – that is a crazy sunburn on my leg. STOP STARRING.
It appeared while we were on vacation in spite of the fact that I had religiously applied sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside and every 2 hours after that. Oh well.
So this skirt, right!?
I bought it on Amazon to wear on Mother’s Day and it’s perfect. I love the A-line shape, I extra love the flower and stripe mix – I could wear that all day everyday. Styling it was a little bit difficult because there’s so much going on, but here’s how I did it…
Tucking the shirt in seemed to create too harsh of a line at my waist and leaving it out would make it way too sloppy. The knot was the perfect way to go (keeping the knot was a little bit difficult, surprisingly). What would have helped were those clear tiny elastics, but I couldn’t find any.
Because there’s so much going on with the skirt, a solid shirt is totally called for. This skirt also works with a black shirt – a combination perfect for a night summer wedding. I would say that I tried to pair a pink shirt with it, but I couldn’t find a pink that exactly matched the flowers and that bothered me. I’m not a matchy matchy person, but I think two different pinks competing like that diminishes the appeal of the print.
A big bold skirt is fun to have in your closet to play around with different looks!
