Happy Saturday! Ending the week on a neutral note with this all grey look. A few weeks ago I mentioned in this post that a prevailing trend for Fall would be Grey. I love my neutral tones and have always loved the simplicity of a monochromatic look, but the floral print and small black details in this customizable eShakti skirt break up the look nicely to keep it from being too boring. What I love especially about this look is that although I took it on a more glam route, it could easily take on an understated appeal with some sneakers, a baseball cap, and a thin cross-body bag. This way, it can take you from day to night and you won’t have to sacrifice comfort to look cute or stylish – talk about a win-win!
While Fall is technically in session right now (and I am not complaining about that one bit, it’s my favorite season from the scent of cinnamon all throughout the halls to the fashion!), our Minnesota weather decided to throw us for a loop and put 70 degree weather back on the table this past weekend. Thus, my closet cleaning was put on hold to go out and about and enjoy the beautiful weather. Usually when wearing a graphic tee or sweatshirt like this one, I like to add structure with light layers. In this case, I chose to wear one of my favorite boyfriend blazers cuffed at the sleeve, but sometimes, if I’m wearing a sweatshirt especially, I’ll wear it layered over a button down shirt that’s buttoned all the way to the top for a more polished look. The truth is, I think Fall is my favorite season simply because of the layers, I just love layers.
“She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini…” Does anyone else have that song burned into their memory? I remember the first time hearing that song I instantly felt compelled to go out and buy a yellow polka dot bikini – I was a pretty impressionable child. I guess the same thing holds true to this day, but within a different form of technology – the internet. Just scrolling through my Pinterest feed I see thousands of Spring style and bikini pins and can’t help but feel an instant need to own it and for the items to show up in my closet (a girl can dream, right?). Above I posted some of the bikinis I’ve been falling in love with and looking into purchasing myself, hopefully there’s one you find you like up there too!
