Today is the first Tuesday in May and that means it’s time for this months Ageless Style link-up party! Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust has chosen the theme Flower Power and after a month of April showers I’d say the theme is pretty perfect. I decided it was high time to show off one of my spring purchases!
Getting dressed each morning is one of my favorite things but also an area I tend to take a little too much time with if I do not do some pre-planning. I’m very guilty of planning an outfit in my head and waiting until the morning to try the first time look only to find it doesn’t work. Back to the drawing board and my Carly girl starts the countdown to keep me on time!
Setting aside some time on Sunday to pull together a few outfits and hang the items, including the accessories, together makes a huge difference for me. Bonus points if I actually try them on ahead of time! As you can see Dutch Buddy was pleased with my progress this morning!
I have been loving skirts again for some reason and when I saw this one I knew I had to have it. It is so different from anything else I had in my closet and it has the perfect amount of stretch plus the length is great for my longer legs.
Out the door and I’d like to take credit for coming up with this pattern mix but this is exactly how I saw the skirt paired on the J. Crew Factory website! I already had this gingham top so that was another selling point for sure. I love this top as it is super lightweight and can be worn even when the temps heat up.
Shoes always throw me just a bit and I’m still not sure this was the perfect pair for this outfit but they had to do. I kept the rest of my accessories fairly simple and walked into work feeling pulled together and professional.
I have worn this skirt several ways so far this spring and definitely think it will see lots more action through the summer. Red + Flowers is definitely powerful don’t you think?
Shop this look for yourself!
