I'm so happy that it's finally warm enough to wear skirts! This look was inspired by this new polka dot skater skirt I picked up from the thrift store this week.
Skater skirts are really popular this season and every girl should have one in her closet! They look good on any body shape and can be dressed up or down, something I think is very important when buying an item. I got this polka dot skater skirt from The Salvation Army for only $2.00 and I fell in absolute love with it! I decided to take the Skater look a step further and paired it with a beanie and a BAPE tee. This leopard backpack added some variety to the outfit, by doubling up on prints. You don't always have to play it safe, prints on prints is the best way to have fun with your outfit and it looks super cool!
I got this BAPE tee a few years back and I began to outgrow it, so I cut it into a crop top. BAPE is a very popular streetwear brand, commonly seen in the city and skate scene. It originated in Japan over 15 years ago and there are only 2 store locations in the US (Los Angeles and New York City). I love pairing their shirts with lots of accessories to give it a more feminine look.
This black slouch beanie pulled the Skater look together and I paired grey socks with these white Dakota shoes to give the outfit a vintage look. As a child, my aunt had these shoes in every color and when I saw them in the thrift store I just had to have em! I love bringing old fashions back with a new twist!
I didn't put too much thought into choosing which accessories to put on today. I kind of just had fun with it, pairing a long black necklace with a gold chain, some cool rings, and a bracelet. I've recently discovered a new love for bandanas, except not on my head this time. I tied my white bandana around my wrist, giving this look some edge.
