The “IT” Skirt For Summer – Asymmetrical Skirts

The “IT” Skirt For The Summer – Asymmetrical Skirts

You know what song is stuck in my head, Demi Lovato “Cool For The Summer”.  You know what else is cool for the summer, asymmetrical skirts.  (see what I did there!?).   Anyways, this skirt trend has been happening for a bit, but looks like this summer marks it as the IT skirt.  I showed you a little inspiration in yesterday’s post but what’s great about this style it is super versatile dressed up or down summer, fall winter or spring!  mark, my love, is always on trend so no surprise this spring they came out with the mark. Taking Sides Skirt, it just took me this long to get my hands on it!

Asymmetrical Skirts and I Are Cool For The Summer

It’s basically and updated version of a high low skirt that mixed with a wrap skirt.  For summer this type of skirt is best in a knit fabric but dressier chiffon options are just as cool.  This mark. Taking Sides Skirt is a lightweight knit fabric in black but high enough quality that it will retain it’s shape and no see through.  This one is a little higher waisted on me so I did fold the band down and in.

I paired mine with a high neck racerback knit tank with lace detailing (Express, old) but this would look really cute with any of those high neck cut tanks with the deep cut ins around the shoulders that are super popular and at every store in every color known to man.  If you’re feeling a little more trendy pair it with a crop top.

For the hot summer this skirt is great, it’s cool but yet its more flattering and comfortable than a mini skit PLUS will look equally as chic with sweaters and boots come fall/winter.  I’m glad I picked up this on trend style.  You can shop this skirt at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Green and Gold for St. Patrick’s Day

Luck O’ the Irish to ya this St. Patrick’s Day!  Since St. Patrick’s Day is going up on a Tuesday it’s much more low key, but that doesn’t mean any less themed out!  Wear your green so you don’t get pinched, eat some Irish food and/or hit up a pub!

Word on what to wear:  Green.  Obviously green.  But there are so many chic options now more than the cheesy St. Patrick’s day t-shirt. With the great spring weather we’re having I wanted to wear a bright fresh green color and play up on the fun of the day with window pain ankle pants with glimmering gold accessories.  Express is my favorite for never boring but still legit work clothes hence the Express Portofino shirt (last seen here) with Express Columnist ankle pants (now available in white with black stripes, I think I need those too!).  Topped off with gold pumps (mark.) gold jewelry (mark.), a green and gold mani (Julep) and gold eye with green eyeliner (mark.).

Word on what to do:  Hit up your local pub for happy hour!  Green beer, Irish car bombs, whiskey shots… oooor maybe just some green tea or Irish Breakfasts tea for me.  If you’d rather celebrate at home then make yourself some corned beef and cabbage!  Roast the brisket for about 2 hrs with the last hour throwing in your cabbage, carrots and potatoes.  Easy, filling and festive!
