Skirt: (Worn as Dress) Etsy

This small community park has quickly turned into one of my favorite places to take photos. Its right down the street from my work; so it wins in the convenience & secret garden categories. About the outfit, though: This is, actually, a suede skirt, but I felt like changing it up a bit and wearing it as a dress. To be honest I was too lazy to search through my wardrobe for a top to pair with the skirt so wearing it as a dress was the easiest option. Once again, I've proved to myself that you can change the look of any outfit with the right belt (regardless of loops). Granted, this was a little warm to wear on a summer afternoon, but it wasn't as stuffy as I thought it would be. Check out my Etsy Store for more detailed photos of the skirt.

I swooned over this look. The combination of the skirt/dress color along with your hair color is fantastic!
