MY STYLE: SUMMER SKIRTS PT. 2

With the official arrival of fall less than a week away, it’s now or never for one of my last summer style post! Although the days have already started to cool down, and I may have already indulged in a Pumpkin Spice Latte (or two), I am still enjoying some of my summer pieces – one of them being this fabulous skirt from Lane Bryant.You may remember another fun skirt that I picked up from Lane Bryant in the first part of my Summer Skirts posts. I grabbed this colourful piece at the same time because if there’s one thing I love more than skirts, it’s skirts on clearance!

I was drawn to the bright pinks and oranges of this piece, and once I tried it on I discovered a bonus little treat: pockets! It was super comfy and the elastic waist allows me to wear it lower down closer to my hips, or higher up as an empire style, adding an extra layer of versatility. To complete the look I paired it with some fuchsia flats and an ombre necklace to compliment the shades in the skirt. This outfit turned out to be perfect for lounging poolside with my feet dipped in the water!

MY STYLE: SUMMER SKIRTS

I am a skirt lover – short, long, flowy, or twirly, I don’t discriminate! So when the end of summer rolls around, I go on the hunt. I know what you’re thinking: “Why would you buy skirts once summer was over?” One word: CLEARANCE! Stores are making room for their fall pieces, which means the clearance racks are piling up with summer clothing.

On my recent trip to Buffalo for a girl’s weekend, I knew where my first stop would be: Lane Bryant, one of my favourite American plus size stores that hasn’t yet made its way to Canada (they ship to Canada if you shop online, but I’m a try-things-on kinda gal). I headed straight for the clearance section in the back of the store, and as I had hoped, there were skirts galore! I picked up two fabulous skirts, one of them being this super fun Wonder Woman-esque piece. Inspired by Margot Meanie’s recent post about elevating a basic look with accessories, I paired this skirt with fun accessories for a day look, and something a bit more dramatic for an evening look. Which look is your favourite?
