|Madewell Tank and Belt, nine3two Skirt|
I bought this fabulous skirt from Nordstrom’s summer sale last week. Now that fall items are starting to arrive in stores, the summer collections are being marked down to great prices. This is a big plus for me, as I’m attending grad school in Florida in the fall, and can extend the wear of my summer pieces, like this skirt, past August. Even if it does get a little chilly, I can easily winterize this skirt with a big sweater or scarf. I love shopping the summer sale items around this time, because you can find great items for such reasonable prices! This blush-toned skirt complements so many pieces I already have in my closet. When paired with a simple tank and wide brown belt, it creates an effortless, downtown-chic look. While I wear tons of dresses, I also like skirts because you can really show off your individual style, by what you pair them with, and how you personalize the look, versus a dress, which, barring accessories is already a complete look. Having a simple silhouette leaves more room for funky jewelry, which I love. Don’t be afraid, pile it on and go!
