This post is long over due but I wanted to get this one out to you all because some of favorite brands are having huge sales. If you’ve been paying attention (of course you have) I posted most of these pictures on Instagram over a month ago but I failed to give the IVN family the deets. I know I’m terrible. Quite a few brands are in trouble financially, so it’s not a huge surprise we’re seeing steep discounts. We’re taking full advantage over here at IVN. The way I see it, if the world goes back to normal we’ll be the best dressed group around…lol If not we’ll be well dressed for the apocalypse either way I’m not seeing a downside…lol
Summer Midi Skirt Looks
Big surprise one of my favorite silhouettes is the midi-skirt, specifically the pleated midi-skirt. I love the midi-skirt because it’s flattering on just about any body type and more often than not you can dress them up or down depending on your mood.
The summer midi skirt featured below is from J. Crew . Nobody does the midi-skirt better than J. Crew. The shoes are an also J. Crew. J. Crew is one of those brands going through tough financial times, which translates to big savings for us. They’re currently running a 40% off sale on your entire purchase; as of today, I can’t guarantee what tomorrow will bring. This skirt is so much fun because it features a peekaboo stripe, one side of the pleat is pink the other side is white. This skirt can be dressed up or down. I decided on a dressier look. But it can easily be paired with sneakers and a white tee for dressed down look. The color contrast makes twirling in this skirt so much fun. One of friends suggested I wear this look to Whole Foods. While more a Giant/Trader Joe’s kinda gal, I’m strongly considering it.
We had a lot of fun with this next look.
It was a total Mommy and Me moment. We dressed these skirts up with heels and brought them back down with some platform Converse. Sanaa and I are both 5′ 3″ aka fun-sized, so a little height is always nice where we’re concerned.
I paired my Banana Republic (BR) poplin skirt with my Angela Scott Mr. Smith Stitched.
I love these oxfords!!! I’d buy them in every color if I could. This is my second time featuring these oxfords on the blog. These oxfords come in several different color-ways, so if the sky blue, white, and metallic leather isn’t your jam the classics (black and navy) are definitely an option. I wanted to showcase both the shoe and skirt’s versatility with this look. The skirt is currently on sale at BR and it comes in a gorgeous coral.
Remember when I said no one does a pleated skirt like better than J. Crew, I exaggerated a bit. SHEIN has some of the most affordable midi-skirts on the market. They have a variety of super cute prints and colors to choose from; we went with the polka dots for Sanaa’s look, you can find a similar style here and here.
Until next time gang…
