First and Foremost Happy Friday My Friends!!!!!!!!  

It has been a rough week for me but what better way to kick off the weekend than some summer outfit inspo.

But first how about eyelet you in on a little secret…….   

This Kelly Green beauty is 25% off today IN STORES ONLY.  So for those of you with summer Fridays (sore subject for me), head to your local J Crew and pick up this Linen Midi Skirt in green, white and/or chambray.  This one will be on rotation for me all summer long.

^how bout’ that eyelet joke huh?  That may have been one of my corniest jokes but I know my dad will be very proud.  Sadly, I have been trying to think up a good “eyelet” joke for days and that was by far the best one I came up with. 

Anyways, if you don’t own a midi skirt yet, you have got to get your hands on one.  Something I love about midi skirts is the fact that they work for every season.   You can pair it with a crop top for summer (like pictured above), a nice blouse or button down for spring or even a chunky knit come fall and you’ve got yourself a weather-appropriate, beautifully put-together look.  
Maybe I toss around the words “must-have” a little too freely, but I genuinely mean it about this green midi skirt.   I just absolutely love it.  The kelly green makes a great addition to my wardrobe to give me a pop of color and fun, yet simple enough to be able to wear more often than a memorable print.  The ties on the side give it that relaxed summer feel while also playing up the cute/fun/flirty feel which definitely make it one of those great work to weekend pieces. The linen material is perfect for Summer and although it may look like a lot of material, it is actually very lightweight.  This skirt is the perfect piece to keep you lookin’ super chic and feelin’ super cool, in more ways than one.  But actually, the best part about this skirt? IT HAS POCKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!  How often do you find a skirt this versatile with pockets?  I mean this was a no brainer for me. 

When I wore this skirt to work, I wore pointed toe flats, and a white sleeveless polka dot sweater.  It was really cute and I got so many compliments on the skirt.  My friend even told me that it looked like an outfit Allie from The Notebook would wear.  I felt like that was probably the nicest thing anyone could have possibly said to me at that moment in time and I went about my day acting as if I were that character.  For the outfit above, I wanted more of a weekend look.  This eyelet crop top is actually the matching top to the eyelet shorts I was wearing in my last post.  It worked out well that I got the whole set because the top pairs well with so many of my high waisted pants and skirts I already have, not to mention it was only $13 from Zara…. You can’t really beat that.  As you can see, I wore my favorite sandals because I just love the way the white really pops when I have a tan.  They are THEE BEST and by far my favorite eBay purchase.  The skirt also comes in two other colors, lapis and white, and judging by how much use I’ve gotten out of the green, I will probably get the other two next time a good J Crew sale rolls around.  I have been trying to incorporate bolder colors lately so this one really jumped out at me and I had to try it on.  I really want to get the chambray (Lapis) as well, I think it would look amazing with a white button down and then also with a chunky beige knit in the fall.  If you order this skirt online right now it’s $69.50 but you can get it for 25% off if you go into the store.  I got mine for 30% off during their most recent sale.  I was actually surprised at the price tag because normally something like that at J Crew would be $100+.

Seriously though, there are so many amazing midi skirts out there right now for Summer and also so many AMAZING sales happening right now!  Check out a roundup of some of my favorite midi skirts out there for less than $50 and my sale roundup of all the can’t-miss sales happening right now!
