Outfits: Isabella Skirt

Note: This week is outfit week on Effortless Anthropologie. Each post will feature one versatile piece shown multiple ways. The goal? Diversifying one piece a bit without sacrificing style.

I'm trying to decide what I think the pattern of the Isabella Skirt ($78) reminds me of. A Mediterranean medallion? A sun? A sun dial?? Anthropologie calls it a royal Alhambra print. This skirt made me swoon as soon as I saw it. I discovered the other day that this skirt is kind of short at 19" hits me mid-thigh. The shape reminds me of a tennis skirt in many ways. It is sitting in my closet now waiting for warmer weather and tanner legs.

I love how many colors you can mix and match with this little skirt.
I chose J.Crew's ruffle short sleeve henley ($40) here.
(I cheated, I know, I'm sorry.)
This outfit makes me feel ready for a visit to an art gallery or museum.

I'm not sure how I feel about denim jackets but it certainly
polishes off this look well. Odille's Esja Blouse (now $40) was
a bit too short on me in real life but Chloe looked fantastic in her blog review. Can't wait for the Blooming Tendril Necklace ($188) to go on sale.

This outfit is all about making the skirt the star.
Use the Many Mirrors Tote ($248) to hold everything
you need for a spring or summer shopping day. Is it May yet?

Wow you are good at this! I like the top outfit best.

FYI, for your readers, I was in an Anthroplogie store last night and I picked up the Oblique Pencil Skirt for $19.99!! I normally wear a 2 or 4 but I had to get a 6 in this. Also got a great wrap sweater I can't find on the website now, but it came in orange, ivory and pale green, it was marked down to $29.99. Some good deals now, end of season I guess.
