River breeze

The slight breeze coming off the water was about the only thing keeping me from completely melting down in these photos... even though this yacht club is only a short walk from my house, a short walk in heels in the heat carrying a tripod seems like a heck of a lot longer.
River Breeze
This outfit illustrates two things; firstly, that no one will notice and/or care that you are wearing the same top you wore a few days ago, and second, that I can't think of very many ways to style this skirt.
So far, I've only worn it three times. With a white top, with a yellow top, and now with a white top. Any suggestions?

Even if this skirt is hard to style, it's really lovely- the blue and white print is so perfectly summery and your turquoise nailpolish/ring/sandals are the perfect contrast. But since you're looking for new ways to wear it, may I suggest a dark blazer? I find it's the perfect way to take a summery skirt from day to night.

These photos are amazing! Thy could easily be straight out of a magazine! Also, I adore the print of that skirt. I say try pairing it with a red top for a Nautical feel, or go with a Teal or Turquoise top and go for some fun shoes! The options are endless with a great skirt like that!

Looove this outfit!!!!
and I say try any color top with that skirt, or maybe even a kooky print ;) XD [I would probably do the same thing you've done though...pretty much wear it the same way...haha]

I feel like that skirt is such a statement piece that maybe it doesn't need much in the way of styling other than a simple short and maybe some colorful shoes (which I see you've done) - it's really a beautiful item!

Lovely skirt... I'd say go ahead and pair it with a green or pink top. I think this skirt is also begging to be mixed with prints... :)

eek said...

What a gorgeous skirt - I wish I had your skills! I think you could go bold with a pink or salmon top or maybe a neutral brown or cream top.

Rebecca said...

I'd try the top with a bright pink, or maybe an orange top.

Shelby said...

FIRST of all... you made that skirt?!?! amazing!!! second of all, the photos you took were well worth the hike and the heat. they are stunning!!

i love navy and hot pink together... do you have a hot pink top to try? or you may be able to pull of stripes or a small floral print in the same colors as the skirt. good luck!! <3shelby

i think it would be super cute with a coral top too :) but maybe that's just bc im in india and have pink on the brain....

Mrs. J said...

Beautiful outfit and great job with the blouse!! I would definitely wear that blouse with everything!! Maybe you should mix the skirt with a stripe top.

I love your green shoes!! :) Lovely location and outfit.

Katie Aman said...

Try the skirt with some fun polka dots or ruffles! Love the pics-makes me love summer..ahhhh :)

Anne said...

I can't think of many colors that you can't wear with this skirt! Red comes to mind right away, along with green, blue, purple, turquoise, grey.... Blue is practically a neutral, right?

Sil said...

The background on your pictures today is lovely, it even seems to match your outfit. I agree with previous comments that a pink top is a viable option for that pretty skirt of yours.

Jess said...

You style this skirt well. I love it. I can't believe you made it. Well, only because I have never made a garment in my life.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Hmmm... you don't have a sparkly gold or silver top, do you? I think it might look good with that and some sparkly shoes! Totally did not remember you wore that top a few days ago. It looks completely different now!

The yacht club scenery is very picturesque. Your outfit is very breezy and summery, especially with the beautiful skirt that is so versatile.

Sherry said...

OK - Totally cool you made the skirt. You have mad skills girlfriend. I think you can do fuchsia or the color of your nails. Any bright color is going to work! Cheers! xoxo

kris said...

I would love to see silver or gold, in a sexy tank style cut, and I'm loving navy and black together. I wonder if a black top with a white polka dot would work.

Wait . . . how about a fruit and floral print? : )

xoxo kris

Mochachocolata Rita said...

this silhouette is fantastic for you!

Nicci said...

Love that skirt, your such a DIY guru.

Frannie Pantz said...

Lovely skirt! I can't believe you lugged a tripod in the heat and took these amazing photos yourself. You are fabulous!

Josie said...

I love that skirt on you -- it's such a fun graphic print and a great shape.

these are such pretty pictures of you! I love the scenery :)

Lydia Marie said...

I think this skirt would look really cute with coral or turquoise!

Madeline Quaint said...

What a great skirt! The backdrop is really nice too...

Maybe you could try wearing the skirt with a blue and white top, with a different pattern, striped, maybe... I've never tried serious pattern mixing before, so I'm collecting ideas too. :)

Sue said...

Such a fresh and cool look! Lovely.
A blue top may look nice with the skirt, accessorizing with red? Go nautical again!
Then again, I'm thinking - keep it simple like you have and use the extra colour in your shoes and nail polish. I'm sure you'll come up with something amazing.

Kaleido Mind said...

i loove the pop of color with the sandals:D

Debby said...

I love this skirt, it looks so good on you! I think it's neutral enough you could pair it w/ almost any color. xo

Sabina said...

I really love the sheer top! And the photos are totally amazing, they look like straight out of a magazine! :))) WOW!

Ariana said...

The skirt is such a statement piece I don't think you need anything elaborate on top! That airy white top is the perfect compliment to it!

Fashion Therapist said...

First a short walk in heels without that stuff is already too far. Second, I can't believe you made those shorts they're amazing!

jess said...

That skirt looks so great on you. I love the shape. Why don't you pair it with a printed top?

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

These are some of my favorite photos from your blog! I love how sweet they are. That top and skirt are perfect for summer. :)

Jenn Giles said...

I think the blue is bright enough that you could even pair a black top with it for an evening look. P.S. You won my giveaway! Yay for you!

Rachel said...

Beautiful nail color! It looks perfect for summer! :D

rlutz said...

Amazing skirt...I could see it with tan, bright green or even orange. Love the big white sunnies and the great frills on that blouse!

Diana Mieczan said...

Those photos are so pretty and the skirt has the most amazing pattern:)Have a lovely afternoon, sweetie

Amber Blue Bird said...

many props to you for trekking around with your tripod in this heat, thats devotion. As for the skirt, have you tried a white top?

Style Journey said...

That skirt is gorgeous. A color suggestion would be a berry or magenta colored top?

Natalya's Closet said...

Amazing job on that skirt! You look stunning! XOXO, www.NatalyasCloset.com

à la Modest said...

This is definitely an outfit I'd love to wear! I like the white sun glasses too. Yeah, looking great in heels... it's a sacrifice we are all willing to make. :)

Ramona said...

hey, pretty lady no worries You look wonderful. That treip in heels and heat was worth it!
I think we sometimes get to panic about getting new clothes, that we don't even now anymore how to wear those who we have. I'm getting to learn how to use all my wardrobe instead of shopping new one.
I think You can try something blue as well ;)

Shea said...

I'm just so totally impressed that you made that skirt! I keep telling myself I want to take a sewing class, but then I never take the time to actually do it!
And I love how you've styled the skirt here--it looks great with the yellow and turquoise accents. Since it looks good with those colors, you could try a yellow top, or a turquoise top or cardigan, maybe?

Lorena said...

Well, how about red ?
I must say that you DO PUT A LOT OF effort into taking your pics and it shoes because they look marvelous.
I take my pics with my cel phone and 99% of the time I am on my own.. no help from anyone !

Marie said...

You made that skirt?! I totally love it! What a perfect summer piece. I'd try styling this top with a cobalt blue or magenta tank and a little cropped cardi...could be fun :)

Kim said...

this outfit is so elegant and pretty! love the skirt! Can't believe you made it!

Taylor said...

I just love that skirt! Have you thought about kelly green, or a royal purple? Even bright pink I think would work!

Emily said...

This outfit looks so put-together and extremely ladylike. My favorite part is the ruffle on the blouse- adorable! I think a magenta-colored top would pop nicely against the dark blue.
