Hello Beautiful People!

I'm thinking of starting a series on the blog, "Get Styled." It wouldn't really be any different than the posts I do that look like this, where I create a shoppable collage of looks I've personally styled, I would just have a title for it. I think it keeps things more organized and easy to find, especially once the update/revamp to the site is complete and ready to be revealed (I've been working on it for about a month now). If you have any other names in mind, let me know, I'm open to suggestions! Anyway, a trend that I really love is the midi skirt. I love how lady-like it is; it instantly adds some class and that chic factor, effortlessly to a look. When creating this outfit I used this paisley printed one as the starting point. To make it more modern, I decided to pair it with a boxy top. The color scheme is perfect for spring/summer, since it's very light and refreshing. Going back to the skirt, I would totally rock it with a black leather moto jacket come fall; I tend to look ahead to other seasons when I shop to ensure myself that I'll get a good use out of the piece, something I strongly suggest you do, too! Lastly, I added these fringed sandals for some added texture and to enhance the focus on the ankles, the only part of the leg this midi exposes. 

I think this pairing would look great on every body shape, since the top is boxy and has longer sleeves, which could help in boosting confidence in those who may have larger arms or midsections, they're instantly gone! For those who don't have an ample bust and are insecure about that, the boxy shape can create the illusion of one and for those who are naturally boxy or rectangular, the contrast with the skirt's shape and style will help to visually distinguish the upper and lower portions of the body and can make the waist line appear slimmer and defined. So, with all of that said, what do YOU think of it?! Let me know in the comment section! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
