If you’ve been following along with me for long, you’ve seen me say that as far as fashion is concerned, “It doesn’t have to match, it just has to go”. That’s how I feel about today’s outfit. I am sure it’s not too matchy-matchy but I’m not mad about it either!
Today’s Jumpin’ July Style challenge is Free Bird so naturally I thought I would wear something with birds on it. Problem: I have two items with birds-wait, make that three- two are scarves and one is this tee shirt. I am not going to wear a scarf on one of the hottest days this year! (Currently it’s 90 degrees!).
So, a tee shirt it is. I decided to wear this fun striped skirt because it is one of my favorites. I bought this at Anthropologie a couple of years ago when I finished up a project at work. I saw it in the store while out in CA and I loved it but wasn’t ready to spend the money and pay full price. I kept an eye on it online and it went on sale, so I made it mine! I love navy-it’s such a great neutral- and the fact that it’s striped with quaint pockets on the front, makes it that much more fun and interesting to me.
A tee and a skirt in the summer seems to be my go-to outfit this year. I love it because I can wear plain or graphic tees and a skirt and stay cool while looking put together. I decided to put these Old Navy green t-strap shoes with the ensemble because who doesn’t love a fun shoe and a little height? It gives the outfit the extra ummph that it needs and it lengthens my legs.
Add a few accessories and the outfit is done! This outfit came together pretty quickly and I love it because when the day is done, a pair of shorts paired with the tee is easy for dinner out or just hanging out with the family.
Hope you all are off to a great start this week! Thanks for reading and following along with me!
