Happy New Year! I hope you have had a magical start to 2018 and it has been nothing but super sales galore! This New Year, I am making a resolution to spend less money on clothing I don’t need and start reusing pieces I have in my closet!
So without further ado…in the photos pictured above I am sporting a black and white checkered skirt from Urban Outfitters paired with a Forever21 cropped turtle neck. I paid around $30 for the skirt and under $15 for the top.
Yes, you may think that $30 dollars for a patterned skirt may be pricey BUT it can be paired with a lot of different tops (t-shirt, cropped top, sweater, denim YOU NAME IT) and the material is almost like spandex so it’s extremely comfortable. 10/10, a worthy purchase and tbh it really accentuates the #booty.
Okay now let’s talk turtles. My Forever21 cropped turtle neck is truly incredible and is really great to layer with, especially in the winter time. I’ve had this turtle-neck for about 2 years and I still wear it all the time so I would definitely say it was well worth the $15. The top is also #gr8 because I wear a lot of high-waisted bottoms and I hate wearing long shirts with a high-waisted bottom because that defeats the point of a high-waisted look!!
TBH I could talk about this cropped top all day, but I’ll spare you.
All in all I love this outfit and it’s a fun outfit to wear when you want to be comfy but also chic! You could even give a look like this some flair by pairing it with a faux fur coat and tights while it’s still a little nippy outside.
