I haven’t done a dressed up/dress down post for a while — they’re some of my favorite posts so I’m excited to bring them back! I found this gorgeous striped wrap skirt at Zappos and instantly fell in love with it. It’s made of a lightweight linen fabric so it’s easy to dress up or down.

For both outfits, I styled it with this white tee (which is amazing, so soft and lightweight but not at all see through!), to show how easy it is to dress up a basic tee.

To dress it down, I paired the skirt and tee with these adorable pearl embellished flats, my favorite straw bag, and this perfect straw hat. I wore this outfit down to the boardwalk in the morning, and then wore it all afternoon at home with my babies (without the hat). The skirt is perfect for lounging!

For a dressier look, I added a pair of embellished heeled sandals, a laser cut clutch, and a pair of statement earrings. This outfit would be great for a bridal shower, a dressier summer date night, or even a more casual summer wedding!

Which styling is your favorite? Dressed up, or down??

    Fabulous basket bag and such a pretty skirt! You’re looking lovely!


  2. Both outfits are gorgeous! My favourite is the second one though because those heels look amazing.

    Great outfits! Love the skirt and hat ESPECIALLY.

    Looks like your hat in this post is discontinued. Any other recommendations?
