Summer Staple Skirt

August 1st, 2017 at 2:06am

Summer is one of my favorite seasons, and now that we’re two months in, you probably know that it’s hotter than hot out. To keep cool in July, I like to minimize my layers as much as possible. I do this by wearing light and airy pieces that allow me to breathe on the warmer days. My favorite piece this summer is my early 2000s inspired denim skirt from Levi’s. I have been wearing this skirt a lot lately, and have found that it can be worn with many different styles. Additionally, this versatile skirt can be dressed up or down for many occasions. This denim skirt is one of my summer wardrobe staples but is a year-round basic.

I paired my staple skirt with a white lightweight cold shoulder blouse. The super thin fabric plus the cold shoulder holes are perfect for the July heat. My favorite part about this blouse is the ruffle detailing across the chest. I have always been a fan of ruffles, and I love that I am seeing them more in my favorite stores lately.

Then, I opted for a leather wrap-up sandal from Free People—I have linked a similar pair. I have been loving leather sandals lately and these have definitely been my go-to this season. However, the downside is the funky tan lines!

To pull the entire look together, I threw on my leather Shinola watch and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Crossbody (aka the perfect crossbody bag). First of all, I love this watch because of its simplicity and timeless look. I find that I can wear it daily and that it matches most of my wardrobe. The Mini MAC has been one of my favorite bags for years now. Additionally, it is a perfect size and fits all of my on-the-go necessities such as wallet, sunglasses, and lip balm. This bag is perfect for everyday use.

The denim skirt has been one of my favorite comeback trends this season. Let me know how you style yours in the comments down below.
