OOTD - Mesh Skirt + Lace-up Heels

21.7.15


While my style is mostly simple and classic, every now and then I like to throw in an edgy, out there piece. Just to throw people off. And also to push my own comfort zone... just a little. It's fun to conduct your own style experiments every now and then. Maybe you'll discover something about yourself that you didn't know before. Like how these heels make me feel like I can do anything! (totally wearing them to my next important meeting, haha). It may have taken me a while to get on board with the mesh skirt, but after wearing it out for drinks one night, I haven't looked back since! Keep reading for more photos and full outfit details!

Tee - Anthropologie (old, similar), Skirt - J.O.A., Heels - Club Monaco, Clutch - Popbasic, Sunglasses - Illesteva, Rings - Homegrown Silver & Stone - Bracelets - Pandora, Lipstick - Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Ripe


I bought this skirt by mistake. Ok, ok, fine, I did have some choice in it. I had actually ordered a different skirt from Shopbop, but they sent me the wrong one. After calling them about the error, I decided to keep the skirt on a whim, and not only did they refund me the difference, I also got store credit (Yay Shopbop!). And then it sat in my closet until the warmer weather came, and then I didn't know what to do with it. I was like, this is not me, I can't wear that! What was I thinking?!? 

Flash forward to drinks a couple of weeks ago, and I needed an outfit. It was hot, and this skirt was looking all breezy, so I threw it on. And I love it! I think the key was to keep the outfit monochromatic, and I dressed it down by pairing it with a simple tee. Throw in some lace-up heels and you've got a kick ass outfit!




Have you ever bought a piece of clothing on a whim and ended up loving it? Hating it? How do you add a little edge to your wardrobe?
