Monday Remix: The Corduroy Skirt

Hi, all!

2014-07-27 16.01.43

Here´s another casual and summery look to start the week right: red stripes for a top, blue colored corduroy skirt, a tan colored bag and sandals and Panama hat to cap off my nautical inspired look. Such a no-fuss combination, isn´t it? ;)

Throw in a studded leather bangle and an assortment of other bracelets on the other hand and we´re done! My feet always swell when it´s hot  outside and so I make sure that I´m wearing open-toed sandals so that it can breathe especially the toes.

Summer is my favorite season to dress up because you don´t need to layer a lot of things (except that jacket/cardigan for those chilly mornings and evenings) to keep you warm because it´s already hot AND I don´t need to worry about stacking my bangles and bracelets because they won´t get snagged. Practical thinking, no?

As for the corduroy skirt, I first wore this last year at the beginning of summer. As usual I forgot about it, then the other day while my arranging my summer clothes, I re-discovered this royal blue number stuck between my summer shorts.We hooked up again. ;) Corduroys have  come a long way from those thick fabrics used for jackets and pants and winter skirts to lighter and breathable fabrics which can be worn all summer long. Try having one!


Today is the beginning of another week where summer´s about to end. How time flies! Have you had your vacation yet? Plan it now while there´s some sun!

You know, I actually own a pair of corduroy skirt, only a blazer! This fits your shape very well and both outfits are cute. I especially love that hat you are rocking.

I really like this simple look! The red stripes go perfectly with your blue skirt.

I love that first outfit. It is sort of Americana, sort of French Riviera. I pinned it. You are right Summer will be over soon. We are scheduling a vacation for the first week of September, we will see. =)

Have a great week, Cheryl!
