July 26, 2011: Chartreuse, Navy, Creme, Brown

Tank: J.Crew sale ($10)
Skirt: Madewell sale ($65)
Sandals: H&M sale ($7)
Bag: Thrifted ($10)
Belt: J.Crew outlet (gift)
Necklace: Black Sparrow (gift)
Barcelets: Vintage & Swapped

This is definitely one of my favorite and most comfortable outfits, possibly ever. I wore this last week to work, after two and a half days of being confined to my apartment with a terrible cold, I was happy to finally get dressed and look nice. Long flowy skirts feel incredible when they brush against your legs in the breeze, which is one of the reasons I love them. This Madewell skirt is one of my favorites, when I can easily envision incorporating an item into three seasons worth of outfits, I know it's a keeper. I can't wait to style this for fall, I think a nubby sweater is just the thing for it. For summer though, I added some cheap-o sandals from H&M and a navy tank.

Definitely one of my favorite looks I've seen on you lately--and paired with the bun, looks perfectly breezy and comfy! The fitted tank and longer skirt are a great silhouette.

Lovely skirt. You pull off pleats well. Its so chic when the right people wear them. I still look like a school girl :(

christen said...

i have those sandals in black! i was disappointed that the tips got worn white after just a few wears, but seeing that the same has happened to yours and that it doesn't look too noticeable makes me feel better :)
