Let The Skirt Do The Talking...

Happy Thursday my loves...
I feel like I am soooo behind! With work and school starting again, I'm just a tad bit overwhelmed.

Please excuse me if I haven't been the greatest blogger friend lately. I promise to catch up on reading, commenting, and replying to all of you as soon as possible.

Anywho, lately I've been on this whole closet purging kick-in fact I've talked about it here and here. But I promise to you that just when I decide that I'm fed up with having an overabundance of items in my closet and limited space to store new things, that's when I seem to find the cutest of cute pieces to pair together.

This, for example...

Shirt-Thrifted (Old Navy)

Up until recently, I wasn't a huge fan of skirts!

I mean, I think they look great on the hanger, but on me-well that's a different story!

Skirt-Thrifted (H&M)

The funny thing is that about a quarter of my closet is filled with nothing but skirts.

Perhaps it's safe to say that I'm a bit obsessed with them now!

Especially this one...

It's so bright, flowy, and colorful!

I feel like style is often a direct representation of your personality and this skirt describes me to a tee!

And believe it or not, it was thrifted from Goodwill. H&M tags still attached!

It had me at hello!

Since summer will soon be coming to an end, I wanted to make sure that I wore as many of my cheery colors as possible.

Being that the skirt had a plethora of colors in it, I was easily able to pair it with the cap toe heels that I DIY'ed in this post. I've been dying to wear them and it was only right that I did so with this 'fit.

Cap Toes-FREE and DIY'ed

 Ha! I couldn't stop staring at them!

My accessories were pretty simple and a bit matchy matchy, but who cares!



 I wanted to let the skirt do the talking!

And that it did!!

I love statement pieces!

Which item in your closet makes the biggest statement?

I can't wait to hear from you!

Thanks so much for continuing to read. I appreciate YOU!
