Pared Down


Since I’m feeling confident in my skirt journey, and as this is my favorite piece at the moment, you will be seeing a lot of this skirt. In this look, I styled the skirt with a button down, like I mentioned in the previous post.

Once this weather heats up, like I’m hoping and praying it will, this outfit will be perfect for some aperitifs seaside. The skirt is great because it doesn’t take up much room in a day bag and can elevate an outfit instantly. The skirt is great for a breezy beach afternoon, while the linen top keeps me covered. And, lest we forget that linen can help with climate control of the internal heating and cooling system. This pairing is perfect from boardwalks to brunch spots and shows again just how easily a skirt like this can be styled.

The blouse itself is a little bit more structured, but the skirt makes it more playful. Also, again, the blouse is something that would pair great with denim and is a neutral. This outfit is also a great ensemble to take with you from Spring to Summer. The days may be warming up, but they can drop to 60 and raining just like that. While it may be great for my garden (maybe?) it’s not so great for my skirting life, but we’ll get there.

In the meantime, I can take my linen button down and pair it as I always have, with a great pair of denim.
