This is a great example of one of my favorite items I've ever done as a DIY project. I used a pattern for this particular skirt, but A Pair and a Spare has such a great tutorial here that I made for a shorter version. I full circle skirt is such a classic looking piece for anyone's wardrobe. I made this one out of broadcloth, so it's lightweight and cotton for warmer months - but can be worn with tights int he cooler months.
When I first showcased this shirt last Fall, I knew immediately it would be a perfect addition long-term in my closet. I have worn it probably fifteen different ways over the past year to include with a sequin skirt, red midi skirt and here over the summer with a pair of black shorts. It's one item I HIGHLY recommend picking up. You'd be surprised how easy it is to just throw over jeans or even cut offs. You can tie it at the waist or wear it open like I did with a swimsuit.
I wanted to show you a masculine vs. feminine approach to making item have a completely different feel. In the previous post here - I wore the button up with a pair of black leggings, over the knee boots, and a classic black hat for a masculine sort of look. Fast forward to this season and it's been all about feminine details for me. I've been loading up on bows, ballet flats and pastels for some reason. I wore my favorite bow cross body with black and white detailing. I bought this bag a few seasons back and it's really been versatile.
