Why do we wear clothes? To protect from the elements. To show our status. To elevate our mood. Or to hide from the world.
Every now and then I’ll find a piece that makes everything more fun. I wish it would be all the time, but it’s actually quite rare. Last week, upon my regular visits to The Real Real, I found a red crepe Miu Miu skirt with the tags still on it for $75. Of course, as a fan of Miu Miu, of the color red, and of midi skirts, I had to, had to, had to get it. Yes, I said “had to” three times. Lately I’ve become a great fan of crepe, it’s sturdy, yet moves quite nicely. This circle skirt has a special way of swinging when I walk. Which makes is more fun to galavant around.
Of course styling it is quite easy since I’ve bared down my wardrobe to a few colors. Pairing red with navy loafers and an indigo chambray top makes this the perfect summer outfit. Yes, of course it’s slightly minimal, but I actually feel quite elegant with all the skirt swinging. If you can even call a swingy skirt elegant that is.

Love this look! I’ve been wearing full skirts a lot lately myself.
They’re a lot of fun! I have a few in my closet, and so glad they’re having a moment!
Love that “disruptive” moment of the loafer, they interrupt the all-feminine ensemble and make it fun. Great find the skirt: great, great, great :)
Aw thanks! I didn’t even think of the loafers that way, but love the way you put it! :)
I would definitely call this skirt elegant and terrific with the loafers. It is too easy to spend too much time on The Real Real. I haven’t even bought anything but there is so much to browse!
I’ve bought exactly three things on TheRealReal, but I go there every day and spend an embarrassing amount of time there.
Super cute. Love the look head-to-toe.
Thank you so much! ;)
