Ever since my big closet clean out, I have been trying to look objectively at every article of clothing that is in my closet. One piece that I was wavering on was a green midi skirt that I featured on one of my early posts showing 4 ways of how to style it. Just after thinking I was going to part ways with the skirt, an Anthro Instagram post made me stop in my tracks. It showed a very similar skirt with other items that were very similar to other pieces I already owned.
I fell in love with the look and wanted to see how I could translate it without spending a dime. It was a cross of a little flirty and a little edgy that just appealed to me.
a.n.a. Drape-Front Faux-Leather Jacket: JCPenny | Pleated Ivory Tank: LOFT (similar) | Green Midi Skirt: metrowear via Burlington Coat Factory (similar) | Sueded Boots: Old Navy (similar) | Aztec Rings: Old Navy (similar)
My version had all the same elements with the green flowey midi skirt, ivory camisole, leather drape front jacket, and peep toe booties. Although this look is fairly simple, the combination of hard and soft play nicely off of each other.
The rings the Anthro model wore were big and spectacular. I selected a ring set I got from Old Navy a while ago that have an Aztec pattern on them. That and my wedding band, complete the look.
This look is super comfortable and easy to work in. My love for skirts and dresses is growing daily and you will be seeing a whole bunch of them when Spring and Summer arrive.
