Statement Skirt

I splurged & bought this Zara skirt on my birthday last December (outfit instagrammed here).  Sequins were everywhere last winter and I knew I would break eventually- I'm just glad defeat turned out to be in the form of this skirt. While I'm no longer seeing the same slew of sequined skirts in stores, I am seeing a lot of playful floral, tribal, striped, patterned mini skirts. Before, I used to automatically associate these "Statement Skirts" with heels, a strappy tank, a clutch, and a night out. But now I've been loving the more casual, daytime look: like playing down a sequined skirt with Toms & a light wash denim jacket.

What do you guys think about statement skirts for summer? Are you going to give them a try?

DRESS Random boutique in SF, but love this high/low option / CHAMBRAY American Apparel, last seen here / JACKET JCrew (old), similar here and here  HEELS Zara, cute wedge version, here BAG Nine West, similar here NECKLACE H&M, Anne Taylor

One of my favorite ways to wear this light weight utility jacket in the spring is over an easy, breezy, silky dress. I decided to have some fun with it today (it is the weekend after all!) and played around with different patterns/textures/layers: polka dots, chambray, gold details, layered necklaces, color blocked sandals. I'm thinking of pairing the jacket with a flowy lace dress next, and also eyeing this camo utility jacket, hmm. Happy weekend- enjoy it! :)
