1 Skirt, 3+ Ways!

Style tips

Have you ever found yourself scrolling through your pictures on your phone and realizing that you literally only ever wear the same two outfits? Have you ever been called out for being an outfit repeater *gasp*!? Well don’t worry! You’re not alone! according to the statistics I just made up, most people have this issue. And you may be thinking, “Leah. What am I supposed to do about it? I can’t just go out and buy new clothes for every day!”

And I agree 100%. There is no reason to buy anything more than you already have! Today, I’m going to be teaching you how I mix things up by sharing sharing how I styled 1 skirt in 3 different ways and got totally different looks! And how easily you can do the same!

The piece that I chose to style today is a basic denim skirt. But don’t limit yourself to your jean skirt! These tips are transferable to so many different bottoms! Be creative!

The first outfit is definitely a staple in my wardrobe. Obviously I have my denim skirt, and for this look I styled it with a graphic t-shirt and my Adidas sneakers. The idea of this look is comfy and casual. You can pair your bottoms with any t, and bring the look together by tucking the shirt in in the front and adding a statement piece of some sort. This can be a big necklace or chunky rings, or a fun bag of some sort! Whatever you’re in the mood for!

This second look is perfect for the fall! I threw on a chunky knit sweater and boom. Instant outfit! For me, what really makes this outfit a “look” is the earrings. As soon as I put on a pair of hoops, I immediately feel like a badass, so these are for sure my go-to earrings. You can’t see from the picture, but I paired this outfit with a cute pair of booties (another fall time closet staple). I feel like the color of this sweater really brings out my eyes, which I always like to play up.

The third and final look is my personal favorite. I love the flutter sleeves of this top, and the white looks so good with denim blue! This look could either be dressy or more casual, all depending on how you accessorize. For a more casual look, go for more simple jewelry and a pair of sandals. If you want something a little more dressed-up, add some lipstick and a pair of heels!

So basically, the possibilities for outfit combinations are nearly limitless! As long as you can see you’re clothes with a fresh eye, you will be able to avoid the outfit repeater slump, and come up with fun new combinations! I can’t wait to see it!

My Top 10 DSW Sale Picks

Sale Finds!

From the 1st to the 6th of July 2020, DSW is having a 20% off sale on MOST of their products! You can check everything out for yourself at http://www.dsw.com, but here are my top 10 (ish) favorites.

The first pair of shoes I had to feature! These Moira Sandals by Essex Lane are the heels that I wore to my prom. They are so super comfortable and actually pretty easy to walk (and dance) in! Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures that show my shoes from prom (#longdressproblems), but you’ll have to trust me on this one.

My exact shoe is not available (I wore the taupe suede color), But the style comes in three awesome colors. I especially love the bright pink suede! Which is your favorite?

The second pair of shoes that I have to highlight especially are the Sam Edelman Felicia Ballet Flats. I have two pairs, and I’m ready for more! After walking literal miles in them, mine are starting to fall apart, which basically just means I’m ready for a new pair! I’m obsessed with this gold metallic color!

Now we get into shoes that I haven’t personally tried on, but are definitely on my wishlist!

Third (the one with the treasure chest?) are BIRKENSTOCKS! Do I need a pair? I think so. This is an investment for my future! Right?

Either way, DSW has some great Birks available, and I think I’m ready to try them out for myself…

Let me just put it out into the universe- I love Steve Madden! I do get confused between Steve Madden and Sam Edelman (and it’s fine because both of them are awesome), but these are definitely Steve Maddens, and they’re awesome!

The clear accessories trend is real, and I love that this is so subtle. I’ve seen people trying to wear full on jumpsuits made of clear plasticky material, and while it’s most definitely a look, I’m not obsessed haha. But these sandals are the perfect amount of clear plasticky material without it looking tacky.

The Nike Benassi slides are supposed to be super comfy and easy! I actually got my dad a pair for fathers day, and now my whole family wants their own slides!

Next are these adorable Hailee Sandals by Kelly & Katie! They have so many cute colors and fabrics, but this navy and white polka dot/stripe denim style is for sure my favorite. I think it’s so stylish, and love that it can be a focal point or not depending on how you style it.

They have so many choices though, so check it out! They have a bunch of not printed pairs in super unique fabrics that take the heel to the next level.

Finally, there is only one word for these J Lo Florella Fishnet Pumps. ICONIC!
