21 JumpStreet

Is it Monday again?! Why are the days of this month going by so fast? As I was preparing to type up this post I was completely astonished that in less than 2 weeks August 2014 will be said and done! I love having a full and busy life, but my goodness, time is moving faster than I am! Nonetheless, on to today’s post =)
I titled this post "21 JumpStreet" after an American television show that was on in the late 80s/early 90s. Holly Robinson-Peete (an actresses) had big hair, and wearing my hair like this totally reminded me of the show and her-LOL!
I looked up images online, and wouldn’t you know it, I actually spotted her in jacket that is similar to the top that I am wearing.
Now this midi skirt has been a favorite of mine for a number of years. Not only is the bright floral print in sync with me, but the practical linen material and attached cotton slip are winners for the summer heat.
Over time the waist seems to have stretched out a bit, and because of that, I notice that I don’t wear it nearly as often as I used to. However, that’s an easy fix, and because it’s in great shape otherwise, it shall continue on with my collective for years to come =)
Usually I pair it with white, orange, or yellow, but I wanted to try something different this time around. I searched through my collective, and decided to go with a touch of trendy by adding this acid wash chambray shirt.
Instead of a statement necklace, I opted for statement earrings.
A small handbag (leaving my bigger tote in the car) and matching acid wash platforms (worn here) finished off the look.
Please share below: Do you rock the acid wash trend, or do you prefer classic mainstream pieces?

  1. I remember 21 Jump Street well. You look lovely in this colorful skirt, and your hair us equally fun. As for acid washed denim...I prefer dark rinses o the southwestern appeal of stone washes.
