Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend. On Saturday my hubby and I were suppose to have a date night, but there was some miscommunication between my family (the sitters) and so we ended up spending the day out at the mall with the children and I got some errands done and some online shopping and me time done. I know that some fashion bloggers are participating in the #noshopseptember challenge (which is awesome by the way) but since I never shop for myself I finally took part in spendingthe first of September shopping with a gift card on a lovely Aztec printed cardigan at the Mint Julep Boutique and went to Rue 21 and got a Aztec printed maxi skirt. I am new to the Aztec printed theme but I am just blessed to have had a gift card and some extra money to shop with. Next on my shopping list is a chambray top, leopard print flats and grey jean jeggings and maybe a leopard printed scarf. We shall see, I need to keep an eye out as I don’t want to go expensive on anything, so I may be doing a Plato’s Closet or Goodwill run soon as the mall doesn’t have much of what I am looking for with the price range I am looking for on each item.
Now on to this skirt. I found it on the 50% off rack at Rue 21, it was originaly $20, marked down to 12.99 and I got it for half off of that for a whopping $6. Score!
I choose to wear this Aztec printed lovely as if it was a maxi dress. If I had not told you it was a skirt you probably wouldn’t be able to tell. The key was to wearing a crop like top I owned and tuck it into th skirt, bringing the skirt up past my waist just under the bosom area. Like you see below.
I love how the pattern looks.
The top I chose has silver and gold embrodiery and sequins that zig zag and creates a Aztec-y pattern about it as well. I wore my punk nail chain necklace and earrings, along with my Rue 21 high heels to give the look a sexy and edgy look.
I cannot wait to style this skirt in other ways, especially into a fall transition style.
What do you think? How would you style this skirt?
