As we continue moving into the warmer months, dressing can become increasingly difficult as we must constantly be aware that any slight shift in temperature can result in being too hot or too cold. Though every person is different and has a specific tolerance when it comes to weather, knowing this crucial detail can help you stay comfortable throughout the day. Personally, I know that as long as my upper body is covered I will remain warm for the most part. Keeping this top of mind is also what kept me focused when deciding how to style this fuchsia mini skirt. I’ve had this piece for a few weeks now and was tempted to just wait until Summer and pair it with some heeled sandals (which I’ll still do, btw). Fortunately, my impatience got the best of me and I was determined to create a look that was more “Spring-appropriate.” Because satin is a fairly thin fabric, I knew I wanted to style it with more substantial pieces that could provide a balance as well as create a solid foundation for the overall ensemble. That aside, I had also recently purchased 2 sweater vests that had been sitting in my closet waiting to be worn. I initially felt this trend was a bit out of my comfort zone, yet every time I saw these garments styled on someone else I absolutely loved the look and knew I had to give it a try. Finally, the opportunity presented itself and the outfit slowly came together. I really loved the juxtaposition of the dainty skirt against the chunky cable knit but I knew I could take it a step further! I’ve been obsessed with button up shirts lately and jumped at the chance to incorporate this gorgeous version featuring openwork detailing and elegant puffed sleeves. As I made my way to accessories, I knew that I wanted to keep things fairly simple since I already had quite a few textures in the mix. That said, I still wanted to bring in some additional contrast so, as always, it made sense to throw in a few black pieces. (Sidebar: If you’ve been following my style journey for a while, you’ll know that I rarely style an outfit that does not include some element/piece that is black). Starting with my favorite chelsea boots, I made sure to incorporate this dark shade at each level of the look with a matching shoulder bag and some rectangular frames. Though it took me a while wo warm up to this outfit, I’m quite a fan of how it turned out and would love to know your favorite featured piece so comment below! Until next time!
