Skirt of the Season
image.jpg

As it's mid way through summer, I'm sure you all have already seen it everywhere already. Being dubbed "the skirt of the season", the front button up mini (and midi) has been featured in almost every fashion publication I read. I actually styled a suede H & M version on a model for an editiorial shoot a while back, but,  with denim definitely being my forte, I absolutely love this version I'm wearing from Zara. While right now it's definitely too hot during the day for a sweater, I love a pop of color and this oversized Equipment cashmere pullover does just the trick. You guys- I can't forget these shoes! When I saw them I knew I had to have them. I love the little adorable flowers that adorn these Pradas and they are so retro-chic. I paired the whole look together with the Louis Vuitton bag that I scored off Tradesy a month or so ago. Hope you like this look! How are you all wearing your "skirt of the season" ? I'd love to check out your looks too so please post links below and share! Also press play on my summer time vibes playlist! Enjoy it!

Lately there is nothing more I love than a culotte. Even in my post last week for Festival Fashion I was wearing culotte shorts. I mean it's gotten a little out of hand. There's just something so versatile about culottes and I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down and worn for cooler weather or warm weather. For this look I chose black which is obviously the most flattering. I also do love the white and pastel color culottes I've been seeing, although they are definitely harder to pull off- especially for someone who is on the shorter side. I am pretty tall but chose to wear a high platform with these because it gives the pant an extra oomph. I would recommend doing the same for all my shorter sisters out there. There are many different types of shoes that look good with culottes, but in general anything with a platform or with a stacked heel will go great with a pant like this. 

For the rest of the look-- I paired a Marc by Marc Jacobs lunchbox-shaped red crossbody for a pop of color and a little funk (it's holographic!). I have my old favorite Rayban clubmasters on that always seem to make their way back into my sunglass rotation. The cropped sweater that says Don't Panic! is from Marc by Marc Jacobs as well. I love it- everyone just chill out and enjoy this little OOTD ;)

Below is my "Don't Panic" playlist for some good vibes. Rationale- Fast Lane is my absolute favorite song of the week. By popular demand -- I'm going to incorporate music in all my posts now :) You guys can follow my music updates and playlists on Spotify (playlist on main page) and Soundcloud.
