Summer Skirts

I’ve mentioned before that Summer dressing, to me, should be easy and effortless, but still polished.  There’s nothing better than being able to pair a great pair of pants or a bright silk skirt with your favorite tee or tank top.  It’s the perfect balance of appearing casual, yet like you still care about your appearance.

Lately I’ve been stocking up on skirts of different lengths in preparation for warm months.  I’m going for bold colors, interesting prints and fun hemlines to wear with my best simple solid colored tanks, layered with denim shirts or a light sweater.

I made the mistake of reading an article years ago that interviewed Cameron Diaz where she told a story about being undiscovered and choosing between paying her rent or buying an Alaia dress.  She said she still has the dress and that it remains to be one of her favorite pieces in her wardrobe.

Let’s just say I’ve been living under this mentality for five years and I’m still not a Charlie’s Angel.

Here’s to all the girls who shop online for hours, putting as many items into their “basket” as they want, only to see the final total, cry, close the window and head to H&M.
