Turtle.

June 1, 2015

The days in LA start off rather chilly and it slowly starts warming… hence the turtle neck on top and mini on the bottom, so don’t get confused.

Mini skirts have always been that one item where I kind of have a love/hate relationship with. Do you guys feel the same? I’ve never really been a fan because I feel like I can’t pull them off ( I always feel like I look so frumpy!) but then you find a good one where it makes you feel like “okay, I can pull this off afterall.” I think for my body type, I have to pair the mini with something more loose on top like an oversized button up or a chunky knit. It helps balance my body and it looks more proportionate!

The contrast between a knit paired with a mini definitely spices things up a bit!

TIP: Make sure to look for denim mini skirts  that:

  • Are the perfect length for your body type – not too short or too long.
  • Have awesome hardware for those extra cool details.
  • Have back pockets because it helps accentuate your butt!

Denim skirts are definitely back… don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun! See you in my next post! xx

    Well, you definitely do not look frumpy. In fact, I was thinking that's how I feel in a mini before I read through your post!! Great outfit as usual!!

  33. Karen Farber says:

    Love this look so much! That sweater looks so cozy, the bag I've been obsessed with as well as the shoes! As for mini skirts, I feel the same way, and only wear them with something flowy on top. Denim skirts are super cute for summer! www.littleblackshell.com

  34. Stephanie says:

    That looks like a great sweater to just snuggle up in on a rainy day. The bag is so pretty. Great look!

  35. Lo Pulse says:

    This sweater looks really fluffy and soft ! I think LA is the only place where an outfit like that makes sense. Elsewhere it's either too hot and you have to exchange the wooly turtleneck for something lighter, or too cold and the mini needs to be turned into pants. Here in paris i could never wear that. It's a shame because it's really cute ! This shade of grey suits your carnation well !

  36. Kate Carvalho says:

    Love this look! Don't think you could ever look frumpy though

  60. Selina says:

    No minis for me, I just don't have the legs for them. I need tights with shorter skirts or I just can't wear them so for me, the season for wearing slightly shorter skirts is in colder months with very thick woollen tights and the longer skirts are all flowy and breezy in warmer months. I do envy people with good legs that can wear shorts and minis confidently

    Love this look! I agree, I have a hard time with mini skirts. They seem so cute and perfect for summer in theory, but I struggle to find one that actually looks good. I'll have to try the oversized top with a mini skirt soon. Hadn't thought of that combination before.

    Dressing in LA definitely can be challenging when part of the day is cold and then it gets hot. But I love the sweater mixed with the skirt. It's a great way to get a few more uses of sweaters before it's just too hot! xo Adri www.adrilately.blogspot.com
