I think I've found my perfect summer outfit. A few weeks ago my friend Meghan of High Plains Thrifter came upon this adorable denim floral skirt. Well ... it wasn't adorable right away — the thing was originally floor-length and dowdy as hell — but we saw great potential in it. We knew it would look perfect sans a couple feet of fabric, so we hacked it off, and voila! The ideal summer skirt: breezy, not too short, and girly yet tough.
I decided to pair it with a plain cotton t-shirt so the floral print could take center stage, but I think it would also look cute with a light striped top, playing with a little pattern mixing. The '80s brown belt, thrifted from my mother's closet, and vintage coi fish pendant I got from my boyfriend for Christmas polished off the look.
I've worn this to one street fesitval so far and plan to work variations into many more occasions. Here's to favorite summer outfits!
