Xteeener - OOTD -  05

I am often won over by separates because of it’s practicality in it’s capability of being mixed and matched. Does anyone else find it gratifying to wear certain items in your closet over and over again just because it’s so easy? Striped tops would definitely fall under this category. When I bought this textured striped top and pale blue skirt I had envisioned pairing them separately with either a print or something that would bring higher contrast to the overall look. The versatility of the two pieces inspired me to start by pairing them together and keeping it clean and simple.

Lace Maxi Skirt and a Straw Hat

embroidered lace maxi skirt

Hey everyone! I’m back with an outfit post; let’s pretend it only feels like it has been ages  😀 This embroidered lace maxi skirt, which was an awesome find at Marshalls, has been sitting in my closet waiting to be styled. I have never received so many compliments–everyone of different ages loved the skirt!

gold nastygal necklace

If you’ve watched my Summer Fashion Haul this Nasty Gal necklace should look familiar :) I recently found this Chambray-like thin short sleeve top that though casual, I felt had that right amount of substance to pair well with the skirt. Normally I have little luck locating Marshalls or TJ Maxx finds online but whenever I can will most certainly link it for you guys!

TIP! If you aren’t already shopping in the Women’s section of discount stores (or really any store in general), you should! The clothing in those aisles tend to be of better quality than that of what you would find in the Junior’s section for example. It’s where I found this top at Marshalls :)

panama hat

I’m a lover of all kinds of hats but this Panama straw hat is perfect in this humidity and really needed some more lovin’ as well.  I’m also currently loving my Fjord watch that was gifted to me. Hopefully they will have shopping available on their site soon as i’m really liking the aesthetic of their pieces!

This Cole Haan crossbody bag is a TJ Maxx find and the shoes I scored from Marshalls. You would think I was sponsored by them! Haha but I honestly have loved shopping at these stores since I was a kid (you can thank my Mom).
