If you are following fashion right now, you know how big the button up skirt is. Overall I do like this trend, but I find it can have the same problem as the boyfriend jean-if not done right, it can leave you looking frumpy and not so flattered. For this reason, I didn’t go out and buy the first button up skirt in my size. I had to exercise patience until the right one spoke to me. (Deep, right?) Eric and I were recently in Wilmington, NC for a family trip. We were coming off a great beach day when I walked past this little boutique on the corner. It intrigued me, so I went in. That’s where I found this skirt-Shop Hallelu Boutique. After doing more research I found they actually have an online store, so you don’t have to be in NC to reap the benefits of this retailer. I really dig the merchandise, and I find it to be reasonably priced. I love when I find little gems like this, don’t you? (Disclaimer-this post was not sponsored. I just found something I liked at a new place I wanted to share it with others so they can go and hopefully have the same experience as me.) Back to the outfit…what I have found so far is the button up skirt pairs well with a crop top. I am loving this eyelash lace one from Forever 21. Last time I checked, they were still available online. Mine is a size medium. And for my feet, I slid on these awesomely flattering and comfortable nude mules. Finish it off with a long gold necklace, and you’re ready for night out with the girls, or a date with your man. I hope this post inspires you to put your own spin on this little trend.
