Colorful Skirt & Flowy White Top

purple flower hair braidcasual pencil skirtHello again! Staring next week, I’m going to try and keep my blogging schedule consistent and post on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I just started a new job so a posting schedule will hopefully help me plan better around my new work hours.

In today’s post I’m sharing a colorful and casual outfit. The geometric skirt is from Nordstrom Rack. For awhile I had trouble wearing it because it seemed so businessy, like when I wore it here. My job doesn’t require typical “office attire” so I thought I might end up giving it away. But then, I put it on and started trying on a bunch of tops and found something that worked.

What do you think of the results?

tty soon!

Friday I was featured on Lauren Conrad’s website and I’ve been smiling all weekend because of it. I’m excited to meet and chat with all the new visitors that stumbled onto my little blog. Please feel free to leave me your blog link in the comment section so I can stop by!

Today’s outfit, believe it or not, is another clearance find! Express has definitely impressed me with the cute pieces they have on sale. Next season I plan to hit the clearance sale early. I missed out on quite a bit because I went into the store towards the end of it.

I think this outfit is perfect for almost any warm weather special occasion. I’ve included a few links below if you’d like to try this look out yourself.

Enjoy!

I recently tried an a new blouse style, the halter swing top! It kept me cool but also looked dressier than a basic tank top. And guess what, it only cost $10 thanks to the clearance sale Express was having.

Unfortunately, Express is all sold out of these tops but I found a few similar items you can try if you’re interested in experimenting with this look.

Cheers to Your Proportions

I have no waist. I’m like a box with limbs and a melon stacked on top (you think I’m joking but I’m not, Lol). I can either find something that fits my waist or something that fits my chest and hips.

I’m hoping that as I continue working out my body will reshape in a way that’ll make shopping a little easier. But if not, oh well… there are other first world problems I can focus on. Like what if I go through life without ever having cable?! (note: I’ve never lived in a house with cable, the exception being one summer in middle school when my parents tried it out and then decided against it. It was the summer of Powerpuff Girls)

Back to the outfit! I found this skirt at H&M for $9.95. It’s so grown-up and feminine. The only downside is that the fabric has no stretch to it and I had to go up a size since it sits on my waist. It definitely fits me but I ate a breakfast burrito while wearing it and I started to lose confidence in the strength of the top button!

I love dressing up and sharing my style but I wanted to do a blog reality check and let you know that I have just as many fashion struggles as the next girl. At the end of the day, fashion should be fun. And if you’re not having fun, than what’s the point?!?!

Now it’s your turn to share, in the comment section let me know what your biggest clothes shopping struggle is.

Talk to you soon!
