Styling a Midi Skirt

September 4, 2015

How fun is this plaid belted midi skirt from Chicwish?! When it arrived, I wasn’t sure what I would pair it with. As I was putting it away, my off the shoulder chambray ruffle dress caught my eye, and I decided to tuck it into my skirt!  You saw me wear it as a dress here. That is the great part about styling a midi skirt – anything can become a top! I’ve also worn it to work with a red and white striped tee. I find midi skirts really versatile. You can wear them to work with more polished tops and shoes or style them for a date night with a crop top and heels. Just FYI – my platforms which you have seen here, here, and here are on major sale!

Also, I am going to fashion week! It is super last minute, but I am so excited. My amazing mother is coming with me, and we are making a girl’s trip out of it. I feel so fortunate to be able to go. When I started this blogging journey, I never dreamed this would be a reality for me. God has been so good to me. I mean that in the truest sense of the words. In the middle of a hard season in life, blogging has been so much fun. So much unexpected fun. All that to say, I have absolutely no idea what goes on at fashion week. I’m actually kind of an introvert. Sooo if you are going, let me know! I’ll be attending the LuLu*s party and the rewardStyle party. I’d love to see some friendly faces. Have a great long weekend everyone!

    Awesome combo! That skirt totally pops! I tuck dresses into skirts too; body con dresses are my favorite kind to do so with. Have fun at Fashion Week! Good luck picking an outfit and I’m glad blogging has been so fun for you (it has been for me too for also unexpected reasons!) XO
