SPRING into black + white – week two

Heya!

So, I’m a midwest gal.  Born and raised.  And I’ve lived in the Chicago suburbs now for about 11 years.  And it’s great.  I love the food.  The amenities.  The proximity to downtown.   But what I do not love…  What I loathe completely, actually, are the Chicago winters.  And this years’ just keeps coming for us.  We had snow – snow – on the ground this morning.  And as I’m over here trying to warm up from my incessant coldness in general, this winter just seems to want to be a total a-hole!

With that said, I’ve decided to go to La La Land.  Not like the movie (though, that is one of my all-time favorites) – but the la la land where an adorable skirt is in season and you can wear a tank top and toast to the weather with a nice glass of champagne.

And that, my friends, is where this week 2 of SPRING into black + white comes into play!

This week, I’m sharing an adorable mixed print skirt – worn with a basic tank that is on clearance for under $5 right now (yeah… I bought it in 3 colors!).

Style Tip:
Try mixing a dressier piece of clothing with a more casual one.  So with this outfit, I’m wearing a dressy skirt with a muscle tank.  You wouldn’t probably normally think to put the two together, but mixing the casual and dressy can create a very cute look – and give you a lot more options in your closet!   Or try wearing a dressy top with some distressed jeans or shorts.   Try it!!  You’ll be amazed at the outfit combos you can come up with!

The adorable skirt runs pretty true to size, but if between sizes, definitely size down (wearing XXS here) and the tank fits very true to size.  I’ve been wearing it dressed up, but mostly dressed down with a cardigan to hang out around the house – gotta love a clothing item that is under $5 and multi-use!

So cheers to la la land, and wearing this skirt when this weather decides to shape up! 😉

Have a great week, loves!
