Skirt or Blouse: Look 1



Hey guys!  I'm truly excited about getting the most from my current wardrobe as I continue building it with only things that I love.  For instance, this cute skirt I bought from my go to store Gabe's was only $7.99.  It's a Dressbarn label and I was too thrilled about scoring it for this price!  Well, I put this outfit together while playing dress up in my closet, because....duh that's what girly girls do...lol.  To stretch the amount of ways I could wear this skirt, I hiked it up over my boobs and slapped on my brown stretchy belt to cinch my waist and flatter my curves.
Can you tell I was feeling cute this day?  Definitely a twirl-worthy outfit...lol!
If you're hippy, like me, a skirt like this with an elastic waistband will work well for you.  The skirt is nice and flow-y.  It has great stretch because of the elastic and is lined as well.  Because I'm not very busty and I have narrow shoulders, this neckline works for me.  
Adding accessories such as this cute quilted crossbody in ivory; stacked bangles, midi rings, and a statement necklace all added character to my outfit.  Stay tuned for a different way to wear this item! I will be doing another blog post soon.  Thanks for reading!
