Elements of Aubrey's Outfit

1. Printed Maxi Skirt

Aubrey purchased this maxi skirt at Gordmans, and it is both darling and versatile. Since it's black-and-white, this bold pattern would match any top. Though it would look super-cute paired with a crop top for a casual weekend look, Aubrey demonstrates that this skirt can also be dolled up for professional wear. 

2. Open Cardi & Colorful Top

Aubrey's cardigan gives her outfit a professional touch. We also love how she decided to incorporate color into her office-ready look. The bright blue top and the sliver of pink underneath it stand out against the black-and-white skirt. ​
