Blue Crinkle Maxi Skirt

Yesterday I was in the mood to wear a little color.  The sun was shining, it was warm outside and I felt like something bright.  I decided to go with my new blue crinkle maxi skirt that I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this weekend.  I paired it with a white tee and a white linen blazer.  The skirt was so comfortable, and aside from rolling over it with my desk chair a few times, I loved wearing it.  It has a nice stretchy knit foldover top so you can adjust how long it is.  The knit lining was super soft, and the outer chiffon layer gave it a really nice look.  Super happy I found this skirt.

Patterned Tunic top

Another style I’m fond of for disguising my pear shape is a tunic top paired with skinny jeans.  I got this one at Anthropologie and love the pattern and fabric.  There clothing is somewhat on the pricier side, but I try to find thing I truly love there and therefore can justify the price.  I once bought a pair of $80 lounge pants there which seems ridiculous, but they are my favorite pants in my closet.  I paired them with a simple white tee and a layered necklace for a summer concert.  I’m sure they’ll be one of my go-to items in hot weather.
