You know when you’re at a restaurant and you order something but then someone else orders something way better and the food comes out and you’re like: I regret everything. This is how I felt about my outfit choice the first time I met Emily Maynard. I was in a too-safe blue dress and she breezes in in this sassy printed mini and I was like: Damnit. I want one too.
I can’t be the only girl who thinks Emily is like a perfect little Barbie doll, right? (She is.) Tabloids be damned, I think this girl is cool as hell and also the master of the printed mini. Exhibit A and B.
So when I saw this skirt at Target I was all, “YES. WHAT WOULD EMILY DO?”
The answer is probably not wear it with a striped bodysuit from Forever 21. But that’s where this becomes my blog so here we go…
The second I got this skirt I knew I would wear it with stripes. I feel like the triangles in the print pair nicely with black and white stripes, but I also feel like my whole life pairs nicely with black and white stripes so I could be wrong here.
- SKIRT: Merona Aztec print skirt from Target (sold out but people are selling them on Ebay)
- TOP: Forever 21 (similar here)
- SHOES: Lucky Brand
- NECKLACE: gold collar from Forever 21 (similar here)
- PURSE: Day Trippin crossbody in cream from Forever 21 (here)
I’d like to point out that that $7 gold collar necklace is totally changing my life. Buy one.
I wore this to dinner at Fahrenheit for Charlotte Restaurant Week and I did not regret my outfit or food decisions. I got a the biggest pizza the world has ever seen and the lady at the table next to me goes, “HOLY SHIT” when it was delivered to my seat. So all in all a successful night.
