OOTD: It's a skirt, it's a tube...

... iiiitttt's SUPER TOP!

(Admittedly ridiculous. Sorry.)

But no, seriously. Way back when I bought this skirt, I was excited to try it as a tube top, too. See, I don't buy strapless tops or dresses all that often. Not only are they not the most flattering on me, but I lack the equipment to hold them up. But sometimes, I like the idea of them, so this skirt was perfect-- I was buying it as a skirt (and would get most use out of it that way), but also knew I could dip my toes into the pond of tube tops, too. Problem solved.

Plus, after yesterday's outfit, which was pretty mainstreamed, I wanted to spice up my new bell bottoms. I mean, don'chall miss it when I don't wear wacky things?  :)

Top/Skirt: F21 striped mini
Belt: Rodarte for Target leopard bow belt
Jeans: J Brand Lovestory in Falcon
Shoes: Steve Madden Tristano heels
Bracelet: A.V. Max pyramid studded cuff (and... eeeppp!)
Ring: MbMJ bow ring, won from ELECTRICFRINGE (thanks, lady!)

  1. That is really cute and I love the belt. I'm not very good at mixing patterns but love when others do. :-)

    LOVE this look on you - the different greys, the wide-leg jean - you look chic and summery. Dare I say maybe one of my fave looks on you - partly for its simplicity?!

  4. This is awesome! You look fantastic in it as a tube top! I did the same thing with one of my skirts a couple of weeks ago. Next on my agenda is to throw a blazer on top and wear it to work.

  6. Ummmmm can I just say how jealous I am that you can not only wear that as a skirt, but also as a tube top? I couldn't pull either look off! You look awesome!

  8. Wow, I cannot believe that top is actually a mini! I'm so jealous that I can't do that, girl! It's too cute as a top, and did I mention genius-much? You look fab as always! (And the nook is looking fab too!)

  12. You look so cute! Love the mix of stripes with the printed belt. You are totally pulling off the tube top, you should rock them more often.
