Summer Neutrals

Monday, June 16, 2014






Top: H&M (similar here)
Skirt: Forever 21 (similar here)
Heels: Zara (similar here)

Wishing everyone a wonderful start to the week! I wore this outfit to see Newsies on Broadway this past weekend for Father's Day. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend seeing it. Everything from the choreography to the onstage talent is just amazing!

I wanted to embrace the beautiful summer weather with this outfit by pairing a bright yellow blouse with an otherwise neutral look. This skirt is one of my favorite pieces because the combination of pleather and pleats creates a perfectly structured silhouette. The dramatic flare makes for a feminine look, especially when paired with a pair of strappy heels. As a petite girl, the mini circle skirt and nude heels help to give me a few inches. This is also a look that can be worn to work depending on your office culture. The skirt may be a bit too short for my current workplace, but I have worn it to a more casual office in the past. As long as you style a piece like this with the idea of professionalism, you can pull it off even at work. It's all about maintaining the image.

  4. It's so hard to look put together in the summertime, but you manage to do it really well! I'm not even someone that usually goes for brighter colours, but I really like how it looks against nude.
