Summer Cool

IMG_2427Nothing is cooler for summer than ripped denim and a white tee. I’m loving this denim skirt, and paired with this suede moto jacket, it’s perfect for a cool summer night. During the daytime worn with some cute flat sandals, this is a great day to night outfit.

Bracelet Crossbody Bag

IMG_8384The designer version of this bag is everywhere and I think it’s so cute and something so different. This one is less than $30 and such a great alternative to the Chloe of you don’t want to spend so much money. It’s a great little bag for summer and I can definitely see myself wearing it all season.

Upcycled

imageKind of strange to say but I originally wore this skirt when I was a freshman in high school, I graduated 10 years ago! The reason I kept this skirt is because I love the fit so much. My advice is to keep anything you absolutely love the fit of because you’ll love it again when it comes back in style and simple updates to it can make it seem new again.  Originally, this skirt flared out at the bottom, but to give it an update I made the bottom slimmer for more of a pencil skirt silhouette.

I went to school for fashion merchandising and there was a big emphasis on the idea of up cycling and being environmentally friendly in many of my courses. I really believe in altering things you already have to create something new instead of going out and buying new things all the time.

I’ve included a before picture of the skirt!

Thank for reading!
