Hey guys! I was so super excited to get my outfit pictures from Florida yesterday! I’ve been dying to see how they turned out.
Working with a new photographer is always interesting, but Martina immediately set me at ease and made me feel comfortable. We had a lot of fun, and she knows Vero Beach inside and out so she took me around to some of the most gorgeous locations. If you’re ever in the area and need a photographer (she mostly does families and events) be sure to look her up! (And big thanks to Susan for recommending her to me!)
We shot 5 outfits, so I’ll be rolling them out over the next couple of weeks, but the first is a fun casual look with a denim skirt and some colorful accessories.
You’ve seen these earrings once before, but I thought they were the perfect pop of color to liven up this neutral outfit. They look like they could be heavy, but they’re not. They’re actually extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear.
I came across this denim skirt on the Saks Off Fifth website, and I’m happy to report that it’s still available. I don’t wear a lot of skirts, but this one is really stretchy and comfortable, and it’s a nice alternative to the jean shorts I normally wear in warmer weather.
Even on a discount, this skirt on the spendy side, so I linked up a bunch of other options at the end of the post. This one has an 18″ length, and I feel like it’s about as short as I’d go. Of course, everyone has a different comfort level, but hopefully that gives you something of a guideline if you’re comparing denim skirts.
For size reference, I’m wearing a 30, which is one or two sizes larger than my normal jeans size, so if you order one, I definitely recommend sizing up.
Also, how fun are these slides?
They look great with denim and other neutrals, and while they may not look it, they’re actually quite comfortable. They stay on my feet when I walk, which is no small feat… haha, see what I did there? Sometimes slides can be hard to walk in when you have narrow feet, but these work.
Every blogger seems to have a version of this round straw bag, so I tried to order one that was a little different, but my order got canceled. These straw bags are so cute for summer, but they don’t hold a lot. That’s the only drawback. Mine sold out, but this one is similar.
Also, I meant to wear my Alex and Ani bangles on my right arm. Somehow in the rush to get down to meet Martina on time, I forgot.
This tee is from Madewell, and I wore it almost every day I was in Florida. It’s perfect for layering under a cardigan, and it also looks nice on its own with jeans or shorts (or a denim skirt, obviously!) I like that the armholes aren’t too deep so my bra doesn’t usually show.
I wore this outfit out to dinner one night when we were down there, and I threw this cardigan on top because it was a rainy night and I was afraid I’d be cold in the restaurant. I wish I’d thought to shoot a few pictures wearing it with Martina, but I didn’t think about it a the time. It was 85 degrees and sunny when I put this outfit on, and a cardigan was the last thing on my mind! If you’re curious, you can see how that looks all put together in this post.
I love my shorts in the summertime, but sometimes you want to level up your look just a bit while still keeping it super casual. A denim skirt is a great option for that!
