Summer Trends: Bright Bottom

Top - BCX, thrifted
Skirt - thrifted, no tag
Shoes - Sam and Libby, thrifted

Raspberry! Fuschia! Ahh I normally hate this color because it clashes worst with my orange-red hair. I bought this skirt 1. because it was $2 and I need good layering skirts for this winter and 2. because if I wear colors I normally can't wear away from my face - I can still enjoy them. I originally planned to wear my red silk skirt, but I wanted something more in tune with comfort. This felt kind of boring so I decided to go polka dot to the max and add my DIY'd covered belt.

Tomorrow my mom has kindly offered to pay for me a haircut. I've held off for a long while because I'm trying to grow my locks back out, but they're rather ragged after growing from pixie length. Wish me luck!

Also if you participated in Summer Trends and want to be included in a round up post over on Casual Chic Kiki, make sure you send Keely (kkmkreations[at] your favorite photo and what your challenge day was!


  1. this is a cute outfit! Love the skirt.. I think the color looks really good on you. And I LOVE that belt!

  2. Hah -- that's why I never wore yellow! It just makes me look sickly. I'm sorry I'm so far behind in posting my pics! It takes me forever to write them up ... I should have done the challenge a week earlier, so I could have gotten a jump on the writing!

  3. The skirt color is gorgeous! But what I really like are the polka dots, especially your belt! That belt is great. I can see you doing lots of different outfits with this.

    Good luck with the haircut. I'm sure you'll look great!

  4. Such a pretty skirt! I like the added polka dots too.

  5. Very cool bright skirt.
    I just voted for the 'favorite' look as well.

  6. I love the belt! That's a DIY?

  7. Great color on you! I love when my mom pulls through on things like that! Yay for moms!

  8. After I grew out a pixie many years ago, I said "Never again!" to pixies! That was rough.


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
