So you know a skirt works no matter work, when you can wear it off to the side (whoops), and it still looks this great. Target and JCPenney have been killing it lately, in my opinion (in the best way possible). I mean this nautical inspired rope skirt? Perfection. I have enough black and white skirts, but knew that I had to get this one as well last month.

I’m so glad that I did, because it pairs beautifully with this new aqua/mint colored sweater (I think it is more aqua in real life) to continue the preppy/nautical look (without stripes). I added in a dash of interest with a multicolored necklace that also features aqua/mint. How to get the look? Tie a long necklace in a knot at the end to give it a more substantial feel.

I felt a bit springy in this outfit, which is always a good thing in my book. Now, let’s set sail on the minty seas.

    Love the skirt! Did you end up buying the bw Target collab skirt? This one looks similar but I think it really suits you! And the mint too.

    • Ooooooo, Sarah. Good call on this being similar to the Peter Pilotto Target skirt! I didn’t even think about that. So maybe I’m good then on black and white skirts? Hahaha. Never.
