how to style a paperbag skirt

 

Hey Beauts! Summer is underway and I’m a little nervous that it’s already June. Slow down please. Mk thanks.

I came across this paperbag skirt and loved it! (I really wish there was another name for this style). It is really chic but also simple and not fussy. I’m definitely a girl that likes to feel put together but, at the same time, not too complicated. I found this from Nordstrom and decided to put together a post for you guys with some ideas for how to style a paperbag skirt. (Piggy-backing on my previous post on Three Different Ways to Style an Athletic Skirt.)

And if you are not a skirt girl, but like the style, there is also a pair of paperbag shorts similar to this skirt that I will link for you down below.

Also, how obvious is it that I missed a button?! Insert face palm. Seriously, Al?

#1 Ruffle

This ruffle shirt though! Just for when you’re feelin’ a little bit extra. Wink wink. I bought it in an XS but wish I had gone one size up because it is a little short. However, tucking it into a high-waisted skirt like this works out pretty well. This is perfect for a summer night out–especially pairing the outfit with these peep-toe booties. Fancy fancy.

#2 Casual

I love this look because it is a bit more casual and would be great for a grad party or cook-out. This tank is also great with just jeans or a pair of shorts. It’s so versatile and the color and style is really flattering!

Since whatever top you wear with this skirt is best tucked in, choosing a shirt that is shorter or thinner is your best bet to avoid bunching and constant readjusting.

 

 

 

 

 

Hey you guys! I’m so excited that this Cleveland weather is finally starting to warm up–I don’t know why it is taking so long this year! But with summer around the corner I love that I get to crack out the flops, shorts, and cooler outfits. I bought this skirt last year and it is great for casual summer days. So today I’m sharing three different ways to wear an athletic skirt.

If you’re like me, we love to make intentional purchases and buy things that are multi-purposeful and functional instead of that one shirt we wore twice and is now shoved in the back of the closet. It helps to save money plus it creates a solid capsule wardrobe you’ll love.

I found this athletic skirt last year (Target) when I started golfing. But when I cracked it out this year, I found it can be worn more than just on the green. These athleisure outfits are super simple to style, and did I mention so comfy?! Perfect for summer run arounds.

I paired this flowy muted purple top with the grey skirt. It’s super cool for hot days and really makes the skirt look a little less athletic. Since it’s flowy, I tucked it into the skirt to break the outfit up so it didn’t look like one rectangle. (I styled this tank last year with jean shorts and a kimono that you can check out!) I also love the sneakers with it–casual + laid back.

Also, side note, I wear footie socks with tennis shoes and sneakers to hide the fact that I’m wearing any. They have a little rubber insert on the back to help them stay on. I wear these all the time, and they are really good to just always have on hand. They are also perfect for your slip-on shoes because they keep them clean and prevent them from being ruined.

This jean jacket is seriously one of my favorite purchases this year. Talk about multi-purpose. I wear it. ALL. THE. TIME. I’ve paired it with dresses, leggings, sweat pants, and this skirt. It’s my fave. And if you couldn’t tell, I’m also a fan of tying up tees, especially since this one is kind of long and would overwhelm the outfit if I didn’t.

I just threw on a pair of my gladiators with this look, but sneakers or flip-flops would also work.

Since this skirt is made for active people in mind (wink wink), it is perfect for lacing up your running shoes. I also got this pull-over last year (also from Target). This top is better for warmer weather because it is thin. I honestly don’t like to wear it too much with leggings because the black on black is always slightly off making my leggings look faded. So I love it with this grey skirt (I have also worn it with jeans).

I have been asked about these shoes a couple of times–Target wins again. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find them on their site, but I know I saw similar shoes in a Target store not TOO long ago. They are actually really comfortable and I love the colors.

I would love to hear any comments you guys have or any post ideas you’d love to read!

After taking these pics I realized I still had my hair tie on my wrist. I put them on completely unaware and will most likely forever have that indent on my arm. I know you are the same way! Anyway, I’m kinda loving all these off the shoulder tops & dresses. Pom poms + stripes have me hooked!

This is the perf little top for summer or vacay and would look great with shorts or white denim. I can literally hear the beach calling right now!

I found this top at Charming Charlie for under $30. There site is “under construction” at the moment so I was not able to find and link it. But I will share some similar tops in the carousel below.

This is still my purse I’ve been using since Christmas. I have gotten compliments on this purse, and (spoiler alert) it’s from H & M. But it definitely could pass as Kate Spade. I love the structure of it because it really pulls an outfit together and makes me feel a little more grown up. And still this color is great because it goes with everything. You can check out this post from a few months back with this purse and a winter outfit?I wore. (Although I’m considering a smaller purse that’s more relaxed for the summer).

I found these sunnies a few weeks ago at Francesca’s 2 for $20. I’m notorious for losing my sun glasses, and honestly if I have too many that chance goes up. But they have some of the best affordable sunglasses I’ve come across. These leopard print glasses are my fave style.
