Winter to Spring :: Lace miniskirt & Ruffle top

by wendy

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Two looks today.  One skirt, two ways – a winter styling and a spring pairing.

Freezing outside = all-black outfit.  It’s my automatic response now.  Sometimes it’s just too cold to think of other ways.  But what I love to do is to break up an all-black ensemble by adding a dose of texture and color to the look.  This utility miniskirt has just the right amount of sweetness (the lace peekaboo) and toughness (the cotton canvas structure).

Transitioning to spring, this military-inspired skirt also pairs well with classic (like this button-up shirt) and statement tops.  Playing with a blue color story, I paired a ruffle top and navy clutch with the blue lace detail of the skirt.

I hope you enjoy the looks and thank you so much for reading!
