Happy Monday, readers! I love prints (as you may have guessed), and this skirt I found is no exception! Even though I’m not currently on vacation, this silk skirt reminds me of being on vacation! A close second!

I wore ankle strap heels and one of my Charming Charlie necklaces to complete the look (sorry for the dark photo!). These ankle strap heels were a real find at $6! I found them at my favorite consignment shop…another find that looked as though they had never been worn. They are surprisingly very comfortable!

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) This skirt is very busy with the stripes and print. I looked for tops that would match, but ultimately settled on a black cardigan tucked into the skirt. When I added a bold necklace that matched the skirt, the outfit still looked coherent but not overly busy. And, joy of joys!, my nails ended up matching perfectly.

2) One of my favorite tricks at stores is to look through all of the racks, including the sizes that do not generally fit me. First, every manufacturer/designer has their own sizes, so you never really know what “true size” you are. Second, sometimes pieces wind up in the wrong section. I found this skirt in a different size section than where it belonged. I’m guessing people saw that and looked past it. It pays to go through all of the racks, you guys!

Have a good week, readers! Thank you for all your support in my fashion hunting adventures!
