I’ve been on the hunt for more casual attire as of late and fell in love with this Splendid Stripe Maxi Skirt when perusing Piperlime last night. There was something familiar about the skirt, somewhat of a déjà vu moment, but I couldn’t put by thumb on it. I went to bed dreaming of watercolor pleats and when I woke up this morning I had my answer – the skirt would be best friends with J.Crew’s Fan Fringe Necklace (weird dreams, I know!). Maxi skirts with pleats tend to make my waist look bigger than it is, so I always like to pair them with a thicker belt to slim down the extra fabric (I usually steel Billy’s, but this one is very similar). I would pair up the look with a simple denim jacket from Target, these comfy Rag & Bone Harrow Boots (cheaper option here via), and my new favorite purchase – Anthropologie’s Seamless Tank. One of my friends recently introduced me to the tanks, and at first glance I thought $24 was a bit pricey for a basic, until she pointed out they are reversible – scoop neck on one side, v-neck on the other – genius! And of course what would a casual weekend outfit be without an amazing pair of tortoise shades, and a big chic handbag to accompany me on my errands!
