I put this outfit together over the weekend, but did not have a chance to wear it until today. Finally, it warmed up here and we got some sun!
A few weeks ago, I found this skirt when I went consignment shopping. Interestingly, I saw it was still selling online at other retailers for $158. Consignment price? $7. As my mother would say, you cannot beat that price with a stick.
The skirt is by BCBG Max Azria and has beautiful embroidery along the top. I paired it with a striped summer sweater from Ann Taylor, blue polka dot shoes from Gap, and a yellow necklace from Charming Charlie’s.
Skirt: BCBG Max Azria ($7 marked down from $158)
Top: Ann Taylor ($17 marked down from $44)
Necklace: Charming Charlie’s (approx $10 on clearance)
Shoes: Gap ($21 marked down from $50)
It’s a monochromatic pattern mash-up! And really, who doesn’t love a good mash-up?
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Monochromatic is very popular right now. If you like the look, try it for yourself! I added patterns, but kept the skirt, top and shoes blue to keep everything coherent. The pop of color in the necklace was a nice detail and kept the outfit interesting.
2) I kept the look more conservative for work with the summer sweater and flats. With heels and a tank top, this skirt could easily make for a great weekend look. And, pairing consignment with a new sweater kept everything fresh.
A side note, my nautical nails ended up matching with the monochromatic theme!
