One of my favorite summer occasions is going to a great backyard BBQ and spending time with friends. So when Missguided asked me to style an outfit for this occasion I jumped at the chance. As I perused through their site I found so many options. I thought about going with a breezy maxi or denim cut offs, and then I saw this denim skirt and I knew I had to have it. A perfectly distressed denim skirt was at the top of my summer wish list and this one certainly fit the bill. But how to style it? I just kept thinking about being on a perfect New York City Rooftop at a fantastic BBQ overlooking the city on a summer day. I live in LA, however, so I have no idea why I had such a day dream. But for the fun of it I decided to take the denim skirt and create a slightly different look to fit each vibe, one for a backyard, and one for a rooftop. This season I’ve been really leaning towards edgier pieces and these two outfits are no exception. For this first look I chose an on trend crop top and some flat gladiators for the backyard soirée. A cute bikini would work great under this so if it happens to be a pool party, you’re all set! If you wanted to take this look to night time I found an awesome structured shoulder blazer that gives enough polish even with the flat sandals.
For my city look I swapped the gladiator sandals for these amazing python booties. I decided on a looser fitting crop top in a bigger size so that it was a bit more baggy and added my own leather hat. Although I not pictured with the second look, the blazer also works with this outfit to dress it up after dark.
I have to say I was really impressed with this site. The prices are great, fast shipping and really cute stuff, you guys should definitely check them out!
