When it comes to clothes shopping and thrifting there are some clothes that capture your eyes and there are some clothes that totally captivate your heart. Ok it’s a little dramatic and cheesy I know lol but there are truly some pieces of clothing that speak to you moreso than others for sure. When shopping I often come across clothing I like but have one or two things that could’ve used some slight editing. So, I just love when I find the opposite in clothing when every little detail looks as if it was carefully thought out and perfectly executed without doing thee absolute most. This skirt, being my headliner, was of course a perfect example of that.
You probably have already realized by now that I have a thing for mixed patterns and vibrant colors. Well, this skirt completely embodies both so its no surprise it spoke to me instantly. First off, I love the shape of this bohemian styled full on flared tiered skirt. The shape of it is very flattering and forgiving in those areas we often need a little more give at times lol. I simply love the soft and sheer feminine graceful swing of this full skirt. .
The colors and patterns add even further dimension to an already beautifully constructed design. The tiers in the skirt consists of different patterns of florals, stripes and polk-a-dots which I all adore. Mixing patterns can add so much personality to an otherwise boring and mundane piece of clothing. But in this case it added even more fabulousness to an already beautifully made design. The colors were absolutely gorgeous too!! I love the turquoise, corals and pinks along with that one subtle contrast of chocolate brown in one tier. I honestly don’t think I would like the skirt as much without the one tier that stood alone. It adds just the right element of surprise..
Ok enough about the skirt already lol. Because the skirt is so busy and colorful alone I decided to go with this simple cotton gauze top that picked up the hint of corals in the skirt. I like this shirt because it is very lightweight and thin making it perfect for warmer weather..
For my shoes I went with these wide strapped camel block platform heels by Guess. I love a block heel because they give you both the look and height of a heel without all the discomfort nor all the feeling of balancing on stilts lol. And the fact that they were round toe didn’t hurt either as these were extremely comfortable.
I decided to go with this two-tone envelope clutch bag. I love the material of this bag because it isn’t your standard leather or fabric clutch. The pink rubber-like material makes it stand out even further alongside the leather. I thought it was really darling and a perfect addition to my entire outfit picking up both the hints of pinks in my skirt as well as the camel in my shoes.
Last but not least I chose a chocolate brown cotton jersey hijab to offset that one chocolate tier in my skirt. The pair of turquoise and coral beaded chandelier earrings I wore were also purchased thrifting and were the perfect match for my skirt. I just love it when that happens!!!
