I completely passed over this skirt for the longest time,
then one day it hit me...
maybe, just maybe, a girl needs an underwhelming (but completely versatile) piece that allows her more vibrant pieces to shine.
As I started pairing it with different things I realized it changed color depending on what you put next to it--looking deep slate blue, camo green or even gray.
Suddenly, what I thought was a no-go, don't need skirt became the sheer definition of a wardrobe necessity.
#1 Running Errands
This chambray shirt is vintage 1980's--I can't believe we've already come full circle to this silhouette since I was a kid, but I just saw a shirt like this in Walmart last week for $10!
Just proves everything comes back around some time or other.

This J.Crew twisted tortoise headband is one of the most versatile accessories I've ever bought. It's the same color as my hair and I love that I can put it on to hold back the frizzy insanity without my hairstyle being interrupted by a jolt of color.
Completely understated, working neutrals in all the same shades, which I've been making an effort to do more. I feel like I'm usually just color, color, color...so this is different for me.

#3 Trip to the park
I can't believe this is the first time you're seeing my insulated Starbucks cup on this blog, because I'm literally NEVER without it.

#4 Street Festival
I think this looks the way I felt that day--relaxed and neutral.
(J.Crew tee, Ruffle Cardigan, Wood Wedges and Twisted Tortoise Headband -- see what I mean? You can hardly tell the headband's there, but it's totally keeping the frizz at bay.)
So, off for a holiday weekend!! I hope you all have a FAB Labor Day!!!
