Today I’m back with part 2 of my floral skirt series and I am thrilled you’re here! I’m going to ease you into different ways to style a floral skirt and save a little riskier move for later in the week. Yesterday’s simple cross front tee was easy and comfortable and could definitely have been done with a plain black tee or blouse; use what you have! However, if you are in the market for new pieces think of adding items with detail to make them more interesting.
The cross front tee I wore in yesterday’s post was purchased from SheIn and so was this OTS top I am wearing today. I was in the market for a white OTS and when I spotted this one I didn’t think twice, the price was nice! #poet It is a little long in length and almost a tunic, it’s also very voluminous but I really love the sleeve detail. It’s sweet. When I look at these pictures I think I need a belt. In fact a nice, wide one would cinch in at the waist and help create a nice silhouette. I’ll be on the look out for one when I allow myself to shop again. I didn’t try tucking in the top but I could have. Since my tummy is my problem area I hesitate when tucking in because of the added bulk, same thing with belts. Sometimes, however, they work.
I added a necklace to this look, it’s one of my favorites from Stella & Dot. It was gift a few years back, after seeing every blogger wearing it I new how versatile it was so I didn’t mind asking my husband to get it for me for Mother’s Day. It was pricey from Stella & Dot but since then there have been less expensive versions that look just as good. Check out Accessory Concierge. My earrings are dupes for the Kendra Scott version I have in turquoise. I bought them from Living Social or Groupon. Since the top is OTS there’s no way this would work in my workplace but it would work for going out. The top is supposed to be convertible meaning you can pull the sleeves up and wear it that way which I tried to do in the last picture but it wasn’t very comfortable.
That’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today, are you ready to add an OTS top for Summer yet? Would you wear it with a skirt? I’ll see you back here tomorrow for look #3 with this same thrifted, floral skirt!
