  2. I love the colorful and shimmery aztec skirts. The look you've made today is the best I've seen. Love it.

  3. Trendy outfit! I really love the skirt... you are so ridiculously fit, girl! I really like all your picks, but I'd have to say that the Express and first Dilliard's piece would be my favorite.  I think #1 could be such a sophisticated look, especially if paired with a neutral tee and nude wedges.  #4 could be such a fun look!

  4. Number 1 is definitely my favorite. Love the colors and the bit of sheen it has to it!

  5. I love the skirt with the heels. Where would it be appropriate/not appropriate to wear?

  6. like it! i have been trying to incorporate the tribal look into my wardrobe even tho its not typically my style. I work at a women's accessory store and I have a good idea- some stacked bracelets such as corded ones or a beaded cuff would look cute with this too!

    I am a new reader and am so glad I found your site!

  7. I have never thought to pair my (going out?) aztec skirt with a flowy top to wear everyday! As a college girl on a budget, I am always trying to re-style my wardrobe! If you have time, please check out my blog about college lifestyle and fashion.

  8. I like this look a lot. The colors are so intense and the flowy girly top is a great choice to wear with this so on trend aztec skirt. Also, your hair looks really pretty in the picture! :-)
    The only thing I'd probably change is the belt. It might look better without it. Why'd you chose to wear a belt in the first place?

  9. Excellent question Mia! The belt is a result of me copying the inspiration photo. I agree that this outfit would also work without it though. And my hair was professionally blown out because I did a VISIT FLORIDA video the day before, so I agree, it looks pretty. If only I could do it the way they do. :-)

  11. I would only wear this outfit out at night - to dinner or drinks. It's way too short (with heels) for daytime events, and definitely (!!) not for work.

  12. i think the whole outfit is really cute, but i am especially loving the shirt!

    This outfit looks great on you.  The top color is very flattering on you.  I personally is not a fan of the aztec print skirt.

  16. LOL - how to tell I'm out of the loop:  I didn't even know it was a trend ;) altho it makes sense: cousin of tribal (one trend I just don't get)!  I like this skirt on you, what you've done with it, and the colors :)

  17. I love aztec. I have a full length maxi dress that I love wearing for summer. P.s - I love those shoes!

  20. The *colors* in this outfit are just soooo pretty and "summery" together!!    I also like how the print of your aztec skirt is a "wider" zig-zag............ i.e., I'm personally not quite as fond of a "tight" zig-zag, (e.g., as in skirts #2, #4, and #6, Above).    Maybe (??) a "wider" zig-zag print, as you're wearing, seems  *c.a.l.m.e.r.*  to me, or something............ than a "tight" zig-zag print!!

    Skirt #5............ i.e., the GB (Gianni Bini) Printed Bodycon Mini Skirt from Dillard's............ is my favorite print, (although the skirt would probably be too short for me!!)............ because of the (stylized) yellow/blue/orange;  and red/white/black horizontal "flowers" of the design!!    (Just to highlight the TOP horizontal band of skirt #5's "flowers," your long, yellow-and-white pendant necklace:

    and your cobalt blue blouse:

    might possibly look nice, too, with skirt #5!!)

  21. (  Addendum:  your long, yellow-and-white pendant necklace, as in your blogpost of 6/30/12:  http://www.jseverydayfashion.com/2012/06/todays-everyday-fashion-bowling.html  )

  24. hey j! i love the aztec print too, i actually already bought that sequined express skirt a few months ago but havent worn it because i'm not sure what to pair with it, any ideas??

    ReplyDelete
  25. MIchelle, I think it would look great with a silky top in a soft color like a light brown, pink, mint or ivory. You could also try wearing it with a chambray shirt like I show in my other outfit (that I link to in this post). Good luck!
