I usually wear a lot of dresses, but this summer I am mixing more skirts into my wardrobe. I love pieces that I can wear more then once and style them differently for multiple occasions. Skirts are perfect for that. With minimal effort and change of accessories you can have a completely new look. I wear all my looks in real life and is important for me to get the maximum out of my shopping.
I was looking for a light summery skirt with a flow and chic quality to it and when I saw this one at Nordstrom Rack, I knew this was the one. I knew I wanted to mix some gingham print in the look, but wasn’t feeling all the black and white gingham that’s out now. I wanted to keep this look light and airy and the yellow gingham top matched my vision perfectly.
The accessories are mix of old and new pieces from my collection. My favorite MODO sunglasses are a sample sale find for $20.00 and my absolute favorite from their collection (I also have it in black) The round shape is super chic and never really goes out style. All the tassel pieces are from my epic $0.99 find from Saks Fifth Ave and I put them together with some I already own.
Now about this bamboo clutch. In the past few years I literally saw the original Cult Gaia back everywhere, every blogger, every magazine, every store. However I wasn’t sold on it because it was too expensive for a bamboo bag and completely impractical until I spotted this baby on Target website and the price changed my mind. I love the size, I love how it goes with everything and did I mentioned the price? Unfortunately as of this moment its sold out, but I am linking a similar one plus everything else from this look below.
