One Skirt. Two Ways.

I have been blogging for almost two years and this is the first time I have ever done a post where I have shown how to style one piece two ways. Even though I have remixed certain pieces from my closet, I haven't done a two for one post. It was a little intimidating and challenging, but so much fun to compare the looks side by side and see the difference it can make by changing out a few items that I already owned in my closet.

Gracie B contacted me a few weeks back about collaborating on styling one of their pieces two ways. I immediately was drawn to this skirt and knew it was something I wanted to add to my wardrobe. 

I chose to start out by styling it in a more edgy way with leather, gold and stud accents. This would be perfect for a dinner date or a girls night out on the town.

The second option was to keep it more casual for daytime wear. The camo print utility jacket was found on super sale at Target right before spring. I was pumped to finally pull it out of my coat closet. It's a versatile piece that adds a little character to a solid top and bottom.

I love both jackets! If I wasn't on a spending freeze I would be ordering both of them right now!! I don't have camo or leather in my wardrobe...yet. :)

Alice Warren said...

Both are great outfits! Love it paired with the leather for an edgier look and the camp for a more mix of girly and tough look!

You're the cutest! I love both looks; I would have never thought to pair that skirt with those and I love it. I have a fear of jackets... I feel like I look funny in them!

We should start a clothes swap; I'll gladly take your clothes when you're sick of them. Let me lose this baby weight first though ;)

Lauren {Fizz and Frosting} said...

It is impossible for me to pick which one is my favorite! I love them both for different reasons! The camo looks fab with the skirt, but I also love the edginess of the leather!
