Cut it Out

Zara Skirt, Urban Outfitters Top (I like this too), Rebecca Minkoff Clutch, DANNIJO Earrings, Ray Ban Sunglasses. Bracelets: Oia Jules, Hermes, Anthropologie

I am so inspired by street style looks. When I was able to visit New York City, after months away from it, I could feel my creative mind flowing. I've been feeling pretty blah about my style lately and completely miss living right outside of the fashion capital for daily inspiration. While being awkward, and staring down perfectly dressed city gals, I became obsessed with maxi skirts paired with a cropped top. One in particular was a white lace maxi skirt paired with an oversized, cropped tank with a faded American flag on it. Shortly after, I hit up H+M and Urban Outfitters and walked out with new tops that are perfect to revamp the skirts that are already in my closet. What street style has recently inspired you?

  7. Great look. That skirt is such a gorgeous color; and that top is so great! You look wonderful.

    I've been, oddly enough given my penchant for color and pattern, inspired by neutral outfits lately. I realize how strong they are.
