I am much more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. However, on the rare occasion or two you will find me in a skirt or dress, I lean towards a very classic, lady like vibe. I like to pretend that I am Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" strolling down 5th avenue without a care in the world. A girl can dream right? Anywho, Tibi has been one of my all time favorite designers for as long as I can remember, especially in my days of living in New York in the summer time. Every piece has an airy no fuss feel. Somehow they manage to capture classic and timeless with an urban feel to their pieces. This skirt/ top combo are no exception. I am usually scared to death of wearing white as I am a bit or a lot a bit OCD and if I get one bit of dirt on me, I actually freak out. However, I couldn't pass this skirt up. It has a little bit of everything I love. The eyelet pattern and pleating add an interesting texture and shape. And it has pockets. So by default it is pretty much the best thing in existence. Anything high waisted I love as it is the best way to show off your waist. Just remember you always want to pair something high wasted with a crop top or something tucked in so your shape does not get lost. Whenever I wear something that leans towards the softer side, I tend to throw on something with more of an edge. In this instant a motorcycle jacket with silver details to toughen up the look.
