If you have not yet read my post The White Textured Shirt, then head on over there to get some background info, before you continue reading this post. Anyway, with a busy month coming up, and many social functions already on the calendar, it is time for me to start planning outfits. The minute my hubby sends me an iCal invite, my mind begins to roll with outfit ideas. Planning ahead will undoubtedly save you time, but it will also alleviate stress. Coordinating outfits should be anything but an aggravating experience so don’t let it come to that. Meet my new favorite Wrap Skirt from Nichole Ciotti’s collection for the one and only Kingdom & State!
I had the hardest time finding an ivory or white crop top that would do this skirt justice. When you are working with a gorgeous statement piece like this wrap skirt, you cannot just throw on a cotton-knit sleeveless shirt and call it a day. While it took a little bit of digging, when I came across the Nyella Banded Bra Top at BCBG, I knew it was a winner! I love how clean cut it looks yet the banded crisscross front and the cutout lower back add just enough edge. Although feeling a bit bashful with an exposed midsection, I had to get over it. You can still look elegant in a crop top – it just has to be paired with the right bottom. According to the KK and GG handbook, as long as your bellybutton is concealed, and your lower half is suited up in a lady-like garment, you have nothing to worry about. In this case, the ultra feminine silhouette of the skirt and the charming periwinkle hue balanced out the fit of the top. Anyway, I accessorized the look with a pink and blue necklace, pearl rings, and blue lace-up shoes. I polished off the ensemble with a gold box clutch and a bright pink lip.
What occasion do you have coming up where a midi skirt and crop top would be the appropriate attire?!
