One Skirt, 2 Different Outfits

 I purchased this adorable multi-colored boucle skirt in the clearance section at Tarjay. I was literally salivating when I got home when I thought of all the colors I could pair it with. (I'm weird like that.) For the first round of outfits with this skirt, I chose to pair it with a dark pink tank. From there I used different shoes, accessories and cardigans to change up the look a little.


I loved the idea of aqua and pink because these are two very prominent colors in the skirt. So, I went with what I tend to do best and used both colors when styling this skirt. I kept everything else fairly subtle (nude flats and a simple necklace) because the contrast of the aqua and pink were so striking.


I have to admit that of the two, this is my favorite. Something about navy and pink makes me happy. At first, I thought navy might be too dark for the lighter colors in the skirt, but I think it works. It keeps this look a little more profesh (and I actually did wear this to work!) and slightly more subdued than when I used the aqua and pink.

  5. Hmmm. I think I like the navy cardigan the best! I think it brings out your beautiful eyes and accentuates the vibrant colors of the skirt! This look is great for work, church, date night, so I've gotta pin it to my modest fashion Pinterest board!

  8. ok, now I'm really disappointed that I didn't buy that skirt when I had the chance. It looks great on you, and I agree, there are so many possibilities! I think I like the navy cardigan just a little bit more just because it looks so great with your hair :)
