This skirt reminds me of my mom’s living room. It’s kinda romantic, very floral and the color scheme is very early 90s. That being said, I hate my parent’s living room and I love this skirt. How’s that happen? I find this skirt to be mega comfortable, versatile and I like the old granny pattern here. It’s an unexpected look and choice for me and I guess the couch-y pattern just works. I love the dusty tones and the almost -Western feel on the skirt. On a couch, not so much.
When I discovered this skirt, my brain kinda questioned where I would ever wear it. It took me a few minutes to decide whether it was a legit purchase or just something that’s going to hang in the back of my closet, collecting spider webs. I decided to go for it and challenge myself to find 3 creative ways to use it. So I decided to make it the key piece in my “3 Looks 1 Piece” to ensure that I would give it some attention. Let me know what you think- would you wear it?
Most of these pieces are things I have worn a handful of times or styled with so it’s their turn to go to a new home. I’ll be adding links to where the items can be found, either on my Depop or Etsy account or the brand’s website it it is a new item.

Because of my tattoos, I tend to shy away from florals. The pattern tends to get lost on me. When wearing florals, I have the tendency to pair it with long sleeves. This skirt felt a bit too matronly with the long sleeves so I dug out this top I recently purchased on Depop ( it’s Nasty Gal and I found it for $8). It has just enough coverage with the one sleeve, yet adds a bit of sex appeal and edge due to the low V cut chest and cropped silhouette.
I was going to a business networking event so I gussied up a bit by adding soft jewelry and a clutch, rather than the ratty old backpack I use daily. The vintage belt with tassel details pulled it all together. The event was downtown LA, so although I wanted to look all fabulous, I needed my shoes to be comfortable. These heels from Floggs are that exactly- chic and high, yet insanely comfortable. There’s a crazy amazing foam footbed that feels like a damn Temprapedic mattress for your feet. I had heard of Floggs, but previously knew them as a 70’s brand until I found this pair at Buffalo Exchange and started following them on Instagram. They have some super cute modern styles now and I’d highly recommend them! – This is not sponsored. Just spreading the word 🙂

As previously mentioned, this skirt is mega cozy. I needed to run some errands and just get out of the house from being a blogging computer troll all day. It was one of those 80 degree days in Long Beach, so I needed to keep it breezy, but you know how the grocery store is cold AF so I layered on a denim jacket. Plus, as I mentioned above, I don’t feel super comfortable in that bold of patterns.
I added the hoop earrings and silver jewelry to keep it casual, along with the stinky ol chucks. Since I was just running wifey errands, the hair went up in a stupid bun, which ended up being super cute with the back of this top and my newest back tattoo. I chose this tank because of 2 reasons- it was a hand-me-down and I have never worn it and the suede trim matches the brown tone of the skirt perfectly. I didn’t realize until I threw it on how much I like it!

This 3rd look, styled on Andy turned out so beautiful to me. We shot this look for a vintage Western editorial and the colors came together in such a complimentary way. I’m very drawn to green and wanted to play up the Army green colors in this skirt. I layered a fringe poncho on top of this green turtleneck for an interesting texture balance and to add bohemian appeal to the look. My favorite photographer bud, Champagne brought this hat with her to the shoot and it was the absolute perfect finishing touch with this color scheme. I kept the boots neutral and the jewelry bold.
Hope you dug these 3 looks! Let me know what you think~
