How I Style: an​ Orange Skirt + Lookbook

This beautiful orange skirt is by Victoria Beckham from her VBxTarget brand. I love the fit, the pocket (yes, it’s a real pocket!) and how versatile of this skirt is. The 5 looks I did are all something I would wear to work or to a professional event depending on the setting or if I just want to be over the top lol. Hopefully, you will get some inspiration from these looks.

 

  1. The first outfit, I thought this skirt would look great with a chambray top, in my case a chambray dress. I’ve always wondered how stylish woman pulled this off but I think that I hid the fact that its a dress. What do you think? I added some leopard print flats to give this outfit some fun and paired it with gold and blue accessories.

2. Yellow and Orange complement each other so well. Because the colors are so bright, I kept the accessories simple and matchy-matchy with the yellow purse and orange/gold bracelets. I added my fitted black blazer because the top is sleeveless and I freeze easily. I also feel like it pulls it together and looks professional. I have 2 different shoe options, my beloved mules (lol I wear them every day!) and a pair of heels.

3. If you didn’t know, I BLEED ORANGE & BLUE!! GO GATORS 🐊 This is my favorite outfit in this lookbook. I may be a little bias haha. I paired this skirt with this baby tee that I tucked in with a matching cardigan and nude heels to pull the look together. Do I look cool with the cardigan wrapped around my waist?

4. If you’re not into wearing a lot of colors, this outfit is more “toned down.”  I paired it with all black and my brown snake-print crossbody bag. To me, the crossbody bag really adds to the outfit.

5. The last outfit, I decided to add this pink knock-off Zara blazer, that I got a long time ago on eBay. I got inspiration for this outfit from Instagram but I can’t remember who it was. Wearing two bright colors together is a bit scary because 1. people are going to stare and think your crazy and 2. you don’t want to look like skittles. I think this outfit works because I separated the skirt and pink blazer with the black top and pumps and I no accessories on so it’s not over the top.

Which look is your favorite 1,2,3,4, or 5? What would you wear with an orange skirt?

Pants Life: What I Wear to Work

I work part time at an Art Museum and its freezing in there. So unfortunately for me, I have to dress warm even though it feels like 95 degrees outside. I typically wear pants 1) to keep warm and 2) I wait to the last minute to get ready and I need a quick and easy outfit.

So all of the pants are from Old Navy Petite besides the Olive pair. I ordered them back in November during all the holiday sales. These pants are not only chic but comfortable. These pants are versatile, you can dress them up or go for a casual look, you can wear flats or heels with them as well.

The first outfit are these Relaxed Mid-Rise Harper Trousers in Black Leopard and a maroon sweater and lace-up flats. The leopard print and maroon pair well together. This outfit is for those casual days in the office or for those days when you are on your feet.

These flats are on clearance for $12 from American Eagle. These are all sold out in petite but, are still available in maternity. Click here if interested.

The second outfit is more professional. I wore this to a luncheon meeting. The outfit still has the black and white professional element, but the polka dots in the pants and the red lace up heels adds vibrancy and fun to it.

The third outfit is bold and by far my favorite. I put two of the biggest trends for Spring/Summer together and made it work appropriate (depending on your dress code). The material on the yellow pants was not what I expected. They are a bit thick and heavy, but once you have them on, you won’t notice.

If the yellow on yellow is too much for you, but you still want to play with color, I paired this Who What Wear Target top with dark olive green high waisted pants. The yellow in the top pops more with the dark pants. If you’re not up for wearing heels at work, I’ve worn sandal with this outfit during an outside event. Flats will work as well.
