stripes and spots

top (old, LOVE this)/skirt (j.crew)/shoes (audrey brooke via DSW)/clutch (deus lux, similar)/sunglasses (prada)
I'm not usually one to gravitate to red or orange colors but the combination of the two, turns out, is fabulous! It's surprisingly easy to wear and manages to really brighten up the most basic outfit.

Take away tip: don't knock it till ya try it (on.)

mid to the max

skirt (worn as a dress) (great option)/belt (anthropologie)/shoes (similar - great price!)/clutch (Clare Vivier)/sunglasses (Prada)

This is probably gonna sound crazy but I'm not really in love with maxi skirts for myself. I'm not a very big person and I feel like a long flowy maxi skirt often highlights my size (or lack thereof) up top. I think the right fitted boxy top would work out well with my long skirt but until I find that top, I'll just wear those maxis as midis with a cute belt to highlight the waist.
