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!

    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.

    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!

    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. (:

    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!

    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.

    I'm not sure why but this weblog is loading extremely slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    The solution should be spread uniformly throughout the pond.
    In understanding what is solid waste and the effects of solid waste pollution, we are drawn to the conclusion that consumers
    can help hasten the achievement of zero-wastes in the
    environment,by minimizing, if not eliminating the use of nonbiodegradable or solid wastes.
    In this case a treatment plant will collect and burn these gases, thus producing harmless (and not so smelly) carbon dioxide
    and water.
