girl crush

Nothing makes me happier than when my pinterest collects images I actually love, i.e. does the work for me. This popped up on my home page yesterday, a street style photo from one of the various fashion weeks im sure, and instantly I had a new girl crush. This lady has it going on. I am not usually a fan of a graphic t with a dressier look (although it seems to have been a look iconized by J.crew in every one of their catalogs since 5th grade, so I should be used to it by now.) This girl, however- rocks it.Screen shot 2013-10-06 at 11.48.31 AM

This outfit is the answer I have been searching for- how to look fall-ready without sweating to death in 90 degree Carolina september heat. The skirt is literally the perfect transition item- sheer material and slits make it comfortably cool but the color and abstract poppy print are a perfect ode to fall.  The red lip, arm party, and Celine bag (drool) plus her sick shades (look like Karen Walker to me)  and a good pair of lace up heels, like I wrote on here. Ugh. So good. I’m officially in love.

After hours of searching for a similar skirt, which I won’t totally give up on yet- since it is a key essential to this look. (I just don’t understand- why isn’t every woman in the world rushing out to buy one of these??) I’ve had to swap in more of a pencil style one from Zara (guess I’ll have to add my own slit.) I also love this midi style from Michael Kors. On top, there are endless graphic t possibilities, but I love the humor of this Homies shirt (so funny) or go the standard route with one from J.Crew.

For shoe options, I found these basic red lace ups from Sole Society (last season), a color blocked pair on sale by Burak Uyan, and a plum colored pair from VS.

Top it off with red lipstick and this fashion editor favorite Celine bag- and you’re set.
