Long time readers of the blog may recognize this skirt; I purchased it back in 2013 and each summer it’s a regular wear. I wore it with a crisp white shirt, I’ve worn it with a Ramones tee, I’ve even worn it in a canoe. In the cooler months I’ve paired it with a fitted black turtleneck sweater as well as a denim shirt tied at the waist.
I saw this top at ELOQUII and immediately thought it would look great with my maxi Ankara skirt but it felt very heavy and wintry. Pairing it with a shorter skirt was more appropriate to the season. This top is super cool, the sleeves are utterly amazing. I think it would look great with high-waisted jeans or pants, and think it’s a cool way to add sleeves to a fit and flare dress. Why stick to cardigans and denim jackets; a wrap top over the dress gives a completely different effect!
A print like this begs to be partnered with more print. This Rebecca Minkoff clutch is such a cool pattern; the fabric is flocked and there’s a zipper edge so there’s interest with texture as well. And well, how could I not wear these fun yellow tassel earrings? I never thought when I bought yellow earrings that I would find so many outfits to pair them with. I wore this look last Wednesday when I met some fashionable friends in the city for dinner. It was breezy and festive, perfect for the evening!
