Some style posts are well-thought-out…maybe an article of clothing I fell in love with and wanted to create a post around (like these yellow espadrilles), or an idea that formed from a number of reader-requests (like most of these Five Ways, and the whole Work to Weekend series). But some style posts happen organically without my even realizing it…like this one.
I picked up this white midi skirt for our trip last month, and before I knew it, I’d worn it so many different ways in my day-to-day life, that I realized it was a wardrobe staple worth sharing.
Paired with heels and statement jewelry, it was the perfect mix of stylish and casual for speaking at the Bloom Conference in May. I tied the gingham shirt at the waist for a bit more panache.
For a second look, I went with a classic Summer medley of red, white and blue. Our founding fathers really knew their color combos, right?! This was after a day on the water, so the hat disguised my lake hair, and the lightweight off-the-shoulder top and espadrilles made it look like I’d given the look a lot more effort than I really had.
Some days it’s too hot even for shorts, so I reach for a breezy skirt like this one…and it doesn’t get much easier than a muscle tank and sneakers. Super casual, definitely comfortable, but still full of style.
I could have kept going with more outfits…in fact, I wore the skirt on our trip, and again for a recent Date Night…so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of it. Which was your favorite look of the three? See more Summer Style here, and find all my Five Ways posts here.
