Your Steal Summer Skirt FOUND!

tie dye skirt maxi skirt summer maxi skirts
  Skirt: Forever21. Mens DIY sleeve hacked Tshirt: Second hand/thrift. Bag: Chanel

This week a friend was wearing this skirt and my brows arched when she said where it was from. She gave me an extra (thank you Ju!)  and I had to share it here.

It's super long with a flattering wide waistband so it can be doubled over to adjust the length or leave as is.  Perfect for weekends and small enough to roll up into a holiday suitcase.

Badass now with cut off t-shirts.  Badass later with giant knits, boots and brimmed hats.

I do not need to tell you either that it works as a strapless dress with a low slung belt.

White Dungarees

White overalls

I love a good white denim especially in dungarees because they take the fuss and 'perfectness' of white out.

I wore them while upstate a few weeks ago and borrowed Daria's vintage jacket for a few minutes just to 'feel' it on me.

White dungarees: Levis. Try Asos or Frame.  Sandals: Zara. Cuff: Liberty United.  Shades: Ray-Ban.  Jacket: Daria's (she talked about it before here).

We both were discussing the merits of constantly searching for the perfectly slouched leather jacket which she now has in this one.   You can read the full piece on Daria here.

I reckon that we're all looking for THE perfect slouched leather I don't care what time of year it is.

If not, then it's looking for the perfect denim 'something' which these dungarees are for me - it's their second summer rotation.  Wear them with a white t-shirt for a white on white look or contrast them in dark tops - both ways work.

7 Ways To Wear Summer Denim

Elaine Welteroth

Denim seems harder to wear in summer but here's seven ideas that inspire enough to want to try.

A summer dress with a denim detail like this one on Teen Vogue beauty editor Elaine Welteroth from Urban Outfitters.  


Update bunched skinny jeans by hacking to above ankles leaving raw edges.  This is killer with heels. 


Try a fitted version of denim on denim versus going oversized.  


Contrast destroyed fitted dungarees with little kitten heels.

Contrast all blue with an accent colour.
