The Perfect Summer Skirt

The Perfect Summer Skirt

Happy almost holiday weekend, friends! You made it! Today's post is going to be short and sweet because this week has given us a serious run for our money, so this is just a little bit of summer style inspiration for the ladies, and a reminder that there are some pretty awesome sales happening this weekend that you won't want to miss out on!

If you know me well, you know that this skirt has all of my favorite colors combined into one glorious, flowy little package and I couldn't be happier about it. Yet another awesome LOFT find, this skirt was in my closet about 5 seconds after I saw it and I've been wearing it every chance I get ever since! The pale pink (I think we're calling it "millennial pink" or something now, right?), seafoam and periwinkle colorblocking was definitely what caught my eye (bonus: there's a matching tank that's pretty much perfection, too!), but the fact that it's such a "throw on and go" style and that it's as comfy and easy breezy as can be to wear really sealed the deal.

I sized down one size because I wanted it to have more of a midi/ankle skirt length than a floor-sweeping maxi skirt, and it works just fine that way because it has a cinch-able tie-waist, so it can be worn higher at your true waist and become a little bit shorter or it can be worn on your hips and be the perfect maxi length, too. A girl's gotta have options, right?

I've worn this white lace Zara top a couple of times before HERE and HERE on the blog and that's because it pairs so well with so many things. I love the cut and the lace is just so perfect, so it's hard for me to find a new versatile white top to replace it with. I'm just not ready to put it out to pasture yet!

If you love this skirt as much as I do, LOFT is currently throwing their huge 4th of July sale with 50% off of your entire purchase in store and online so you can score this skirt and so much more... for less! Their sister store Ann Taylor is doing the same 50% off deal, and there are so many things I'm currently coveting from both places. I absolutely love these pink Ann Taylor slides and am definitely picking them up before the sale's over.
