Food Fashion and Flow: Skirt as a top

Skirt as a top


 Happy Monday! I hope your holidays were amazing! Mine certainly were:-) Can you believe this is the last Saturday of 2013? My holiday season has been full of blessings. I got a Nutri Bullet for Christmas, so green smoothies here I come! I usually start each year off with spring cleaning, which means donating clothes. I came across a hi low skirt and debated on if I wanted to keep it or not. I try my best to stay away from items that are too trendy because sooner or later they end up in my donation bag, but sometimes clothing items can be worn multiple ways. I looked at the silhouette of this skirt and thought it would work fabulously as a top. Now thats what I call fashion recycling! Completely remixing a high low skirt is a great trick, especially if it has a nice looking pattern.

My hi low skirt now has a new life as a top that I can layer. Have you ever worn your skirts as a top?

It seems like my fingers are naked when I don't have a ring on of some sort. Are you like that?

Cardigan: New York and Company, Hi Low Skirt: System, Bag: c/o Mimi Boutique, Boots: Macys

This is the way I originally styled my skirt over a year ago. You can see more of this post here

This has a different vibe when worn as a top and I doubt I will wear this as a skirt anymore. I am not feeling the high low hemline anymore. I prefer classic and timeless, but I do love to have fun with trends every so often. So how are you feeling about hi low skirts and dresses these days?

I love the detail on this bag. It is the perfect color to wear with just about anything and it has such a luxe look. I love it! If you are not familiar with Mimi Boutique. You should become acquainted with them real quick because you will love everything on their site. Check them out here

I love riding boots and they are always so super comfortable.

I love hoop earrings. Really really love them

So, how are you liking my skirt as a top?

This handbag has great craftsmanship. Mimi Boutique truly has some amazing accessories.

Have you ever recycled any of your clothes in a clever way?

Before I had a blog I would never consider a skirt as a top but now it makes so much sense! Glad you could find more use out of this skirt! It has a fun print!

I always like you in colorful clothes. You've got legs for miles.

Nutribullet is a wonderful thing. My husband got one and it made his gym life easier. Hope you make lots of yummies for yourself.

Have a nice day. And happy new year!

Thanks ladies! I can't wait to see some of you remix your skirts into tops. Skirts work great as dresses too:-)

I was given something that I can't figure out if its a top or a skirt but I'll definitely be rocking both. You looks Fab how you dressed it up.

Happy New Year! I'm happy your skirt has found new life as a top because it's got a terrific Missoni-like pattern to it, and of course much of your beloved shots of colour! I remember Sienna Miller once hiking up a borrowed maxi skirt to her armpits and belting it and that's forever been my inspiration to look at alternate uses for clothing. I'm a fellow hoop earring lover. They frame the face so beautifully, like a pretty set of bookends! I was trying to decide if they're still trendy, and I realized, one way or the other, I don't care! Best wishes for 2014 LV!
