Print and color have always been something I felt comfortable wearing. The ever popular body con items that have come on the market have been something I was cautious in trying. When I saw this colorful aztec pencil skirt, I thought it was worth giving a chance. I am so glad that I did!
With all the colors in the skirt, it can be paired with so many different tops. For this look, I chose one of my favorite colors of coral. I have even devoted several posts to wearing this color. What makes this top so special is that it has a long silhouette with sewn in draping. The contrast between the slim skirt and the billowing top makes for a beautiful look. It also made my first time wearing a body con item a breeze by covering some areas of my tummy I do not like showing.
Texture is the perfect element to introduce to an outfit that is full of bold pattern and bright color. This crochet vest added just enough for me to make this look complete. I love how the coral color peeks through the open work of this layer. I carefully selected my accessories to go with the global influence of the skirt and opted for this horn necklace, snake print clutch, and wood bangles.
The last time I showed these blocky heeled sandals was with a jumpsuit and with the skirt they take on a whole new light. For being a heel, these shoes have proven to be quite comfortable. I love how the neutral color does not compete with the outfit, but still carries the theme with the pierced work around the ankle.
This is my last complete look from the Designing From My Closet collection from AllyOops Boutique, but it is not the last you will see these pieces as they are easily being remixed with older items I already have.
Fit Notes: I chose to go with the 3X in the skirt as I found it to run a little on the small side. It does have an elastic waistband and it easy to move around in. The coral tee I am wearing is a 2X and is fits nicely over my upper arms and hips. It is super soft and moves beautifully.
