Patterned Skirts

Top: Target  |  Skirt:  MNG by Mango via JCPenny (shop)  |  Tights: Old Navy
Boots: Dolce Vita via Macy's  |  Necklace: Anthropologie (gift)

I've searched high and low for months for a floral skirt because I don't have any patterned skirts.  I've come to believe that having a few patterned bottoms are key to helping me build a remixable wardrobe.  They are a far cry from my typical skinny jeans and help me to wear basic shirts, like this denim top, in a more interesting way.  And pockets?  Pockets will always be the keys to my heart.

I have just a few topics left for the remaining posts on Building a Remixable Wardrobe.  They'll probably be less robust and involve less how-to's.  Instead, they'll talk about the third piece of "3 Things I Needed to Learn" (found in the "Intro" section), discussing the pieces I needed to add to serve as foundational building blocks for mixing and matching.  A floral skirt was one of them!

  3. Doesn't it seem like like floral skirts go "in and out" of style every few years? Regardless, I hope those boots are always "in"!

    It's safe to say I am obsessed with your style. I can't find a chambray shirt to fit right and I wish I owned one. Uber cute look. Need that skirt and those boots in my life too,

    I also really just don't own a patterned skirt...I feel like I should rectify that.

  9. Ooooh a patterned skirt, the STAPLE of my Spring and Summer wardrobe. I can't wait to pull them all out! I'm having fun playing around with mixing the patterns up! Yours is too cute!

  10. I'm pretty amazed at how, when I have fewer things in my closet every week, I suddenly feel like I actually have more combinations. Gotta be something about having only multi-functional pieces goin' on. Anywho, congrats on moving into pattern skirt land. It's a fun place to be. (:

  11. I love this outfit! I agree, even though patterns have a personality, I think that we all need a few in our closet to spice things up. You look great, as always!

  12. That skirt looks great on you, better than on the model at JCPenney! I would not have given that a second thought seeing it online, but now I want one.
