trending: silk (midi) skirt

Look. It is NO secret that I am clearly feeling the leopard trend. (#sorrynotsorry)

But…wait…should leopard really still be considered a trend? I feel like it’s a staple, at this point. Wearing this print has evolved so much and can be tastefully worked into daily outfits without looking too sexy or outrageous.

I love pairing my leopard midi skirt with a graphic tee. It instantly makes the look relatable and cool. Daydreamer clothing makes some of my favorite graphic tees of the moment. They not only have authentic graphics, but they have a wide range of styles (oversized, cropped, distressed; colorful, monochromatic, neutral, dark). This t-shirt, in particular, is the perfect length to wear with skirts. Not to mention, the colors just work when mixing with a bold print (like leopard).

While I love the effortlessness of this perfect summer outfit, I cannot wait to transition this skirt into fall with a simple fall sweater (and sneakers for as long as I can).

This cropped sweater from Nordstrom is under $100 and from last year. There is a similar one available this year and in multiple colors (and under $50). It looks great with jeans, black pants and skirts. Just like the t-shirt, it hits in the perfect place, isn’t too bulky and I love the low neckline. This transitional outfit would be great for work, brunch, a meeting or a weeknight dinner.

Pause.

Can I also say…I was never really a ‘sneaker’ head. Maybe it’s because the sneaker craze is so fashionable and wildly accepted in today’s fashion or maybe it’s because I am a busy, working Mom…but I literally wish I could only wear sneakers all day, every day. While I am excited for boot weather (because what midwesterner doesn’t love boots?!) I am not ready for sneaker season to end.

Okay…back to styling. This outfit would look great with black booties and even an oversized denim jacket, or black moto jacket, as the weather gets cooler.

Fall is definitely my favorite season and I am ready for cozy vibes. I love dressing for transitional weather and re-styling basic pieces (like this skirt) in my closet to get the most wear out of my clothes.
