Hello Mandy’s friends! I’m Elsie from Polished Whimsy blog. I am honored to be sitting in for Mandy today. Mandy is a great resource and friend, so I am thrilled she trusts me to post on her blog!
When Mandy asked me to guest post on her blog, I knew immediately what to write about. I had recently purchased the Loft sunny lace skirt and have been itching to style it. Because I know how much Mandy loves Loft, I thought this would be the perfect outfit to share in my guest post.
During my outfit contemplation, I decided to bring in some spring trends. Therefore I paired the skirt with banker stripes. I love how the warm yellow plays off of the cool blue stripes. Similar to Mandy, I also like to pattern mix. So, I had to take the opportunity to do so here. Therefore I chose to wear a floral print shoe.
This may seem like a lot going on in one outfit, but I assure you that it works. You see I come from the What Not To Wear philosophy. Did any of you watch that series? Basically the hosts recommended wearing color, pattern and texture in an outfit to provide visual interest. Well folks, that is exactly what I’ve done here! I have color and texture in the skirt and patterns in the shirt and shoes.
To coordinate with the outfit, I chose a light blue handbag. The color of the purse unified the blue in both the shirt and the shoes. It also allowed the Loft sunny lace skirt to be the pop of color and thus the center of attention.
For other accessories, I kept it neutral with some gold pieces. I chose fun gold tassel earrings and a pendant necklace. Then I coordinated with a neutral watch and gold cuff bracelet. You can’t see it but the watch hands are blue! Silly, I know, but that little detail makes me so happy!
I hope you enjoyed my outfit with the Loft sunny lace skirt. I can’t wait to play some more with this skirt. Next I will try pairing the skirt with purple, won’t that look regal? If you have other outfit suggestions for this skirt, let us know in the comments!
Thank you Mandy for allowing me to step in and write for your blog. It has been a true honor! Bye friends!
