I have decided to do a little series of posts devoted to my new chiffon maxi skirt I scored from Forever 21 (for only $17.50). The idea for this series came when I was lusting after a long tutu I saw on Anthropologie's website and after deciding I would never wear it because it was too fancy and anyway what on earth would I wear it with?, I never purchased it. Then, I realized all the ways I could have worn that gorgeous full length tutu, and was completely disappointed in myself for not realizing before it was too late!
Well, when I was searching for some bargain buys in my local Forever 21 a few days ago, I saw this lovely, flowey, pink pleated chiffon maxi skirt hanging on the wall across the room. I was instantly drawn to it. I knew I could wear it all the same ways I could have worn the tutu! When I tried it on and realized I actually didn't look frumpy in it, my mind started racing with ideas.
The first was this chambray shirt. I love pairing something this flowey and girly with something so casual. Also, I'm really into this tying my shirts thing lately. Anyway, I love this look, because the shirt offsets the dressiness of the skirt and the ballet flats make it extra casual for just easy wear around town, think lunch with a pal, or even just shopping and running errands. You could wear this to a dinner as well. It's a pretty versatile look. Also, I love the way the colors look together. In an effort to mix in a few different textures, I dug this thrift store clutch out of a pile (this looks like it's made out of raffia or something?)
