New skirt- c/o Minted Republic, tank top - Express [similar here and here], bag - c/o Handbag Heaven, heels - Vince Camuto, watch - NY and C, necklace - Forever 21 

I really love the dark, soft colors in this outfit, a bit of a change from my other recent posts :) Paired with a light cardigan/blazer and maybe a dark brown or nude briefcase, this outfit would also work well for a day in the office. Instead, I did some light shopping :) And yes, although I am wearing sort of dark colors, it works very nicely for summer too as the materials are very light, such as this skirt from Minted Republic. It is made from the same material as my sharkbite top in this post. One of my favorite things about 100% polyester is that it doesn't wrinkle!

Now I want to talk a bit about the fit ;) You can see that the waist was just perfect, and I am wearing a size small. (Measured to be 26.5 inches exactly). I did, however, get the bottom part of the skirt tailored at my local alterations/cleaners. I thought I might be able to pull it in on the sides and get a slit in the back (for walking) because I like a bit more of a tailored, slim look. But, there was not enough material for a slit. So here you can see what I mean about taking it in on the sides:

I think they took off about 1-2 inches on each side. It was a little harder to walk up the stairs but if I really want, they told me that I can take it back for a slit on the side. We'll see. 

Now for a new Romwe giveaway! I was supposed to do a Suboo giveaway if you were keeping track of my announcements, but that was changed/delayed.

My personal favorite is the blue :) 
Please note that the first three steps are mandatory! Good luck!

  2. I love this outfit! I really like the skirt. I never thought to take in the skirt on the sides. It really gives a better fit! I have some skirts that I thought weren't very flattering on me, but I think I will visit my local tailors to get it done!

  5. Always so pretty Jess :)
    This star printed skirt is so pretty! Aha, although I can see how the stairs might be frustrating trying to go up in that skirt.
    And darker colors definitely can still work for the summer. Its all about the material!

  7. Your outfits never fail to amaze me! Love the colors - the navy, brown and purple go so well together. Rich, deep colors, yet light looking material. The star pattern on the skirt is lovely, and I love the bag! I find long skirts like that harder to walk in sometimes too!
