Lately some beautiful Spring collections have been showcased on around the blogosphere...all very much swoon-worthy and inspiring. Some of my favorites include, Built by Wendy, Harvey Faircloth and Kate Spade. But, with the exception of a few stellar or classic pieces, I'm the kind of girl more likely to wear something that I like a lot, but that I found for a good deal. Without the latter, it's usual a "no-go" :)
In the Summertime when we spend more time at the park than anywhere else it seems, I like the idea of wearing a soft, cotton skirt that breathes...and a simple top with maybe a fun detail or two...and a pair of shoes that are not only comfortable but look stylish too. Add in a pair of hammered gold hoops and I'd call that my ideal summer uniform.
Here are some simple, versatile, and seemingly comfortable skirts I've spotted. None of them run over $50 and one is as low as $16. Awesome.
Beginning top left and moving clockwise: skirt 1; skirt 2; skirt 3; skirt 4; skirt 5; skirt 6; skirt 7; skirt 8
And of course we can't forget our feet...a very important part of our daily comfort! Below I've presented some choices that hopefully fit every personal style and/or lifestyle. Some are slightly "rugged", some more sophisticated, others bohemian, most pretty classic. Shopping links are included below the images in case you're interested in seeing more. Enjoy!
Beginning top left (read like a book): black sandal*; peep toe croc; mauve lace-up; bronze wrap; bronze rugged; red ankle-wrap*; chocolate brown; blue; cognac w/studs
p.s. did you know that I found every single one of these sandals in the "comfort" section? Yup. It's not just the section where your grandma shops anymore :)
