I'm constantly professing my love for color - I like to say that I crave color the way someone might crave a juicy hamburger! So, I figured, why not wear all the colors together at once? Like, on a skirt that's basically a big rainbow? And I have to say... it was glorious. There is so much happy in this skirt, it's a celebration of ROYGBIV to the nth degree. Skirt is still in stock and available up to 2X here, and I love the idea from the inspiration photo to pair it with a white top!

Back to School With Lark & Ro

Today’s post is sponsored by Amazon and Lark & Ro. All opinions, clothing selections, and editorial decisions are solely my own.

It might be mid-August, but the seasonal shift is already happening – you can feel it in the air! As the kiddos around us are headed back to school (and some adults too!), there’s a nostalgic instinct to start back-to-school shopping, with a shift towards fall colors and more serious work clothes. (Say goodbye to bikinis and pom poms! Sigh.)

The timing is spot on for today’s post with Lark & Ro – the items are well-made, modest, and perfect for work. They can be worn now in the warmer weather, and with a blazer or cardigan as we transition into cooler fall weather. A private label fashion brand owned by Amazon, Lark & Ro is available exclusively to Prime members and mostly in the $59-79 price range. I picked out two outfits for today’s post. (I’m wearing a S in the dress, and added the white belt because it’s a bit big. The navy outfit, below, is a size XS, and the skirt is just a tad small.) I like both for different reasons – it’s hard to pick a favorite!

Have you ever shopped Lark & Ro? Which outfit do you like better?

Mickey Mouse tee with pencil skirts

Carrie Bradshaw did it first, and all these years later, a Mickey Mouse t-shirt is still so much more than a souvenir... it's become a fashion symbol! One popular way to wear it is with a pencil skirt, like my inspiration photos above. I realize this may not be the everyday woman's first choice for the office, however, it's a clever way to incorporate a team shirt for spirit day (or the like) - by adding a pencil skirt, heels and layering statement necklaces to dress it up.

Ringer Mickey tee, patch denim jeans, studded leather jacket

Another idea for wearing a Mickey tee (or really any graphic tee) is by pairing it with patch denim and studded leather - two of the biggest trends for fall. This look is totally over the top and yet totally laid back and casual. Will be wearing this one for a travel day when the weather cools off!

How would you wear this trend? Which outfit do you like better?
