Inspired by Alexa

Jacket- H&M (similar on sale $44), Sweater- Old Navy (similar on sale $17), Shirt- Target, Skirt- Peter Pilotto for Target, Heels- Charlotte Russe (identical)

Before shopping the Peter Pilotto for Target collection, I had decided on the red printed wrap skirt. Until I saw Alexa Chung wearing the black one, that is. I figured the black was more wearable anyway, and I loved how she paired it with a pastel sweater. I meant to recreate this outfit so many times, but after hanging my skirt in a random place in my closet, I never saw it, so I never wore it.

Well, thank goodness for the random cold Sunday we had this weekend. I figured it was finally time to break out this skirt for church, AND it was cold enough to pair it my own pastel blue sweater. I added a white button up underneath just because it felt right. I didn't need tights, and I opted for white shoes instead of black to make it a little more spring-like.

If you missed out on the Peter Pilotto collection, check your store's clearance racks. I found several items from the collection there over the weekend. I also found some other printed wrap skirts on the web, all under $40!

  11. Thanks Nikki! I was kind of surprised to find so much of the collection on the sale rack in my store, so it's worth a look if you want to find this skirt. After buying several pieces, I only kept this and the black printed bikini top since I love that lattice print so much!
