The last time I wore this skirt, I rocked it with a backwards cardi and pastels. Someone had commented that they loved that styling so much, they couldn’t imagine how else I could wear the skirt. So, in the words of Barney Stinson - challenge accepted.
To be honest- at first, I agreed. I did have a hard time styling this skirt, and I was pretty impressed with myself for that particular combination, so I was a little at a loss as to which direction to go next. But then I somehow put this combo together. And I thought it was pretty awesome. True story. (ok, I’ll stop with the Barney quotes now).
skirt: Diane von Furstenberg
sandals: uuuuh, old and worn out. Urban Outfitters, I think?
This dress is dangerously close to being just too short. I was just about flashing everyone on my street when I bent down. Not that I haven’t done that before, though.
The reason it’s so short, is because it is actually a childrens size. Remember when I found out I could still fit in little clothing, after thrifting in the kids section that one time? Well, when my sister sent me a gift card for my birthday, my first instinct was to head for the kids section, instead of the womans. Come on, you knoooow you envy how stylish those kids are in the JCrew catalogue. Could you blame me?
P.S - I was a little disappointed in how the dress photographed. The stripes are actually a really bright, neon orange. But it’s coming across as kind of peachy. Boo :(
necklace: Marc by Marc Jacobs
