Fancy But Not: Slitted Skirts with Sneakers (+ Layers)

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I sometimes buy these things that I wear maybe once…and then they get hung in the closet (for all eternity). Well, this darling skirt is one of them. Just when I think I’ve shied away from wearing this too-dressy-for-everyday piece, I tried it with sneakers.

I’ve had the itch to wear it and decided eh…why the heck not? YOLO. I mean, come on. There has to be a way to style this thing with sneakers and make it more wearable for everyday…and then it won’t sit lazily in my closet. Instead, it can revitalize my transitional style a bit.

Also, it’s one of those things that’s actually pretty perfect for Fall down here in the South. The leg slit makes it more breathable and provides a bit more of an opportunity to add a layer or two up top, BUT removable ones that act more as accessories, of course (b/c it’s still too darn hot).

outfit details

shades: BP. Round Sunglasses – my particular sale is no longer available, but this pair is super cool w/ the blue and tort(!).

sweater: love by design sweater, sold out – for the sleeve look, I’d go with this Tie Sleeve Sweater, but for the slouch factor…I’d go with this Michael Stars V Neck Pullover.

jacket: BlankNYC Moto Jacket – amazing jacket for the price. FYI: I went up one size to a medium.

skirt: ASOS Maxi Wrap Skirt, almost sold out – ya know what, though…I’d totally wear this Sangria Skirt  OR even this Ribbed Midi Skirt. Awesome.

sneaks: Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Sneakers, my particular pair is pretty much sold-out – BUT these are very similar. I also really love these with the mix of black, tan & white. Yessssss. Now, if you love the look, but don’t have the $$…CHECK-OUT these Ash Glitter Sneakers. Significantly less. (they have more styles, too)

bag: The Fix Mckenzie Studded Suede & Leather Bucket Bag – an update to the old cross body. Really cute bag (& it’s available in Navy, too!).

earrings: ASOS, old. I LOVE these DesignB London earrings, with the hoop and cross!

Slitted Skirts to Try with Sneakers

Yeh, that’s what I’m talkin’ about. #momstreetstyle, ya’ll. Maybe I’ll be to able to really wear all of the layers to this one by…oh, late December at this point. ha.

So. What’s something you’ve got hanging in your closet that you’d actually like to wear for once?

Cheers,

  1. I love this look! As a lady in South Carolina, I appreciate the layering potential. Definitely going to try to copy it… on my 5’4″ frame… ok, I have no idea how to make these proportions work on my short self without it becoming overwhelming … 🙂

  2. Love this look. I can’t wear all the layers in SoCal, either. I have a backless muted black sequin cocktail dress that I seriously need to figure out how to wear. It’s just hanging there…waiting…
