Look of the Day: Little Ditty

Sequins and stripes are a weakness of mine; my closet is littered with them. I like skirts too, skirts are my favorite. They are versatile, girly, lady-like and transform clothes into an 'outfit'.

This Ecote Geo Wrap skirt from Urban Outfitters is about 5 years old (I purchased it after seeing it on Lauren Conrad) and it never ceases to amaze me how I continue to reach for it in my closet. You can see how I wore it here, here, and it's first debut here. It's bright, flattering and I always get tons of compliments on it.

Classic pieces of clothing, that can be worn over and over, have changed my shopping habits. Now I stop and think "Could I really wear this five years from now?" and chances are a flattering skirt (that's not too short) will be around in five years. I've definitely got more then my money's worth on this little ditty.

  12. That's a smart way to shop by asking if you'll wear something a few years in the future. I need to be better at that! I adore bloggers who wear the same thing over and over in blog posts, it makes them easy to relate to! Love the mix of prints you've got going on!

  13. You ladies are so sweet! I love the feedback! Thank you the Key to chic! It's funny how I feel "bad" for wearing the same skirt over & over! I love the darn thing, and you're right it is so much easier to relate to!! Thank you!

  14. I love that skirt!! The color an subtle print and fabulous and it'll be perfect for transitioning to fall! I would have never thought to style it with stripes, but your whole look is amazing! And how brilliant to bedazzle a cheap tank for a jcrew look! <3shelby
