Outfit: chambray + red pattern skirt

I've been seeing chambray's styled with skirts on lots of blogs lately. Here is my take. I love the dark denim with the fun red patterned skirt and my favorite mint statement necklace.

Chambray - Love Stitch
Skirt - Burlington Coat Factory ($14!!)
Pumps - Cole Haan, old from Nordstom's Rack current version
Necklace - J Crew similar
 
Confession: the last time I wore a skirt (excepting maxi skirts) was probably at a funeral. I'm not kidding. I love skirts...on other girls. I struggle with skirts on me though. I am tall (5'9") and I have super wide hips. So I have to be careful to not look bottom heavy. This look works on me because the tucked in chambray accentuates my waist. This visual 'cinching' breaks up the top and bottom half and helps me not to look like a pear. Also, at $14 this skirt was a steal! I'm so much more comfortable taking risks when they come with a small price tag.

  1. I love this skirt on you - you can definitely pull this look off, even if you don't love skirts. And I'm loving the darker chambray of your top!
