    I love these ideas! I have a pink and white striped skirt I don’t wear often but now I will, thanks to these outfits! You just helped save a closet orphan! You can adapt these outfits to any patterned skirt

    Cute ideas, but a big NO to the mocassins for a music festival. Mud, drink spills, rain… Those shoes would be ruined in an hour, not to mention your feet would reek from sweating in them. Just trying to warn everyone…

    Everyone but me seems to find cute stuff at Forever 21. I like the 2nd look best. And I’ve started to fall in love with denim vests – I like that you featured it in the 3rd look.

    How funny, I bought this skirt a few weeks ago because I thought it would be an easy day to night look, as you’ve so awesomely shown, and because it was less than $10!

    I love all the outfit ideas for this skirt! The second one is definitely my style, but my favorite is the third one because it’s so different from what I usually wear. Thanks for sharing! :D
