~ Summer Fashion: Skirts!!

This year is zooming by!! It’s already July end, say what!?! For most of ya’ll summer is on it’s last leg but for us Houstonions, we are blessed with scorching summer heat more than other states of the US! Haha! Not that I am complaining, I am enjoying my summer 🙂 with my frizzy hair in tow and all 😉 LOL!

When it comes to dressing up during the summer months, I like being chic yet comfy and wearing skirts is one way out! I love my skirts!! Over the years, I have picked my skirts from various places – India, Kuwait and here in the US: Aeropostale, New York and Company, Cato’s, JC Penny and Macy’s!

I have many skirts, some printed, some plain. Mostly I like to keep complimenting pieces together as in if the skirt is printed, keep the top plain and vice versa, but off late I have been more daring and mixing some prints.

In the collage above, I have compiled some of my recent summer looks depicting my love for skirts. These skirts are from all over the place and I am sharing the details below (going left to right, from the top row):

1. Green Skirt is from Biba. I got it on my trip to the in-laws in Lucknow, India. I paired this with a simple beige top from Loft and shiny gold sandals that I also bought from Lucknow, for an evening party.

2. Grey Skirt with mint green stripes is from Macys. I usually pair it with a black top for an evening look but since this was an outing during the day, I wore it with this mint green top from Aeropostale along with my new sparkly mint green shoes from Cato’s. The tote bag is from Gucci.

3. The black skirt with white tiny polka dots in the third pic on the top row is from Mumbai, India. It’s a sexy little number with side slits and all. I hadn’t found an event to wear this skirt to, but the recent date night with the hubby was a perfect occasion. I teamed it up with a nice white lacy blouse from Loft, sparkly black flats from Payless and my Coach wristlet.

4. The white and black chevron print skirt is from JC Penny and this is the time I tried to mix prints! The orange palm tree print top, my sparkly orange flats are from Cato’s and my bag from Gucci. I usually wear this with a plain white or black top, but like the mixed prints – what do you girls think?

5. Next up is one of my favorites – the beige skirt. This one is from New York & Company and I have had it for a while. I wear it pretty often with different tops, but love my pairing of purple and beige! In my opinion even though the skirt has white zig-zag lines all over it, the butterflies do not clash as the skirt’s subtle neutral color makes it almost as good as a plain skirt. What do you think?

6. The last one on this collage is actually a perfect skirt for the fall – with the colors and all!! It’s a recent addition to my skirt collection and comes from Cato’s just like the top and the shoes I am wearing with it. I love this bag I got from Aldo in Kuwait, especially using it in spring/summer months thanks to it’s bright color and laser cut design 🙂

My jewelry is from all over the place, I pick things up as and when I like it, anywhere and everywhere – some from India and Kuwait, others are either from Charming Charlie, Forever 21, H&M, Rue 21, Icing, Old Navy or Cato’s among others. There are way too many cute options available, so be sure to check it out:
