Shop The Look:
When I caught word that denim mini skirts had come full circle and were (once again) back in style, I wasn’t excited. Not in the slightest. I tend to be an optimist, but this news was a bummer. I had flashbacks to Abercrombie-clad middle school days and cringed at the fact that I had to give this new (err… not so new) article of clothing a second go-around. Don’t get me wrong, I’m actually one of the lucky few that loved her junior high years. But, in retrospect, my 7th grade self (back in 2002) didn’t have much of a chance when it came to fashion… I mean this was the era of the Juicy Couture velour tracksuit. It reigned supreme. Yikes. (Please read this article for proof. #nostalgia)
But, fast forward to 2017 and I’m happy to announce that the denim skirt has grown up a bit. After trying on J.Crew’s updated version of the denim mini, I was sold. Clearly it’s classy… it’s J. Crew people. This white denim skirt is not nearly as short as the micro mini skirts from middle school. And, there’s no need to swing by your local Hollister in order to rock this trend. #hallellujah
P.S. If skirts aren’t your thing, this pair of cropped white jeans would be darling with this look too!
I paired this white denim skirt with my favorite over-the-knee Weitzmans. History can attest to the fact that I love styling a mini with an OTK boot. It provides a welcome balance. Just enough coverage.
This cozy ribbed sweater is one of my absolute closet favorites (remember that I styled the same sweater in red?!) The subtle boat neck makes for a flattering sweater that’s just about as versatile as can be. It’s sold out in black (womp…) but you can thank your lucky stars that this nearly identical black boat neck sweater just popped up online! It would be equally as adorable. This darling little Tory Burch leopard bag is also sold out but it’s available ON SALE as a leopard hobo! So darn cute, right? Or, you can snag this exact Tory crossbody (sans the leopard) in both red and camel. Such versatile classics. That red one is totally on my radar! 🙂
And, just in case you’re bummed about this bag being sold out, I’ve got a bit of consolation! Read more below! xo
