Accidental advice

Earrings: Nickel & SuedeNecklace: Express (other colors here) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (45% off!) | Top: Express | Watch: Kate Spade | Skirt: Express (option, option, option) | Sandals: Rebecca Minkoff (budget option)

It's funny how this outfit came together. You've seen this skirt twice before - here and here. I wanted to wear it again today, but wanted to make it a little more casual since my last two looks were somewhat dressy. As I was virtually scanning my closet in my head while trying to fall asleep, I had decided on a graphic tee of some sort and my denim vest.

When it came down to getting dressed in the morning, I was sifting through my tops, and saw this lace tank. I remembered Noelle telling me that she likes tucking hers in. So, for grins, I went ahead and decided to try it. Consequently, I loved it! The tank is tiered, so I left the top tier untucked, and it really looks more like a crop top vs. a full tank - last worn here.

But I say this is funny because as I started putting this post together, I was trying to find Noelle's outfit with her tank and then realized that the comment she made was actually in response to my outfit here -- she was talking about this lace top of hers, NOT a tank. But in case you were wondering, the tank also works very nicely tucked into skirts. :)

Clearly I own too many clothes, I can't keep it all straight.

    1. I don't know why I have never done this before! The placement of the tiers falls perfectly on this top to do it!

    1. I always forget that this tank has tiers on it, too! Even when I'm wearing it, I always find the top tier haphazardly sticking up bc I forget it is there! But it worked nice with the tuck!

    1. I thought so as well! I'm naturally high waisted, so crop tops aren't as blatantly belly baring on me!
