I think the thing that makes the skirt work for me is that the hem isn't cut straight across. It's more of a circle skirt. It's 100% cotton, therefore, not too light and not "cheap" looking, although it was under $10!
See? I can't wait to recreate this skirt on my own. I often hear that if you find a piece that works for you, buy it in several colors. I do this all the time with tanks and boyfriend T's from Target. A lot of times, though, I want something more unique. Good thing I know how to sew! My blue top is also of fairly simple construction, yet has on of my favorite necklines, so I may be spending some DIY time duplicating this whole outfit!
What I'm Wearing:
Sunglasses: Francesca's Collection
Blue Cap-sleeve Shirt: Garage
Cotton Skirt: H&M
Gold Necklaces: Forever 21
I'm definitely packing this outfit for my trip to NYC next month. It gets hot in the city--an opportune time to have the perfect summer skirt in my suitcase!
I really can't wait for my trip. I miss The Writer and hustle and bustle of the East Coast. In fact, I think coming back to the Midwest will be really hard. I can't wait to move in a year, maybe to NYC. I wouldn't have to drive an hour to the nearest H&M, that's for sure.
