Steals Under $30

For the first July edition of SUT, I wanted to feature one versatile piece (which I just purchased for myself!) and show different ways to wear it for work & play.  I kept the palette simple for both looks, but this skirt would also be perfect with a polka dot top (hello, print-mixing!) & ballet flats or a chambray shirt (tied in a knot at the waist) and espadrille wedges.  The best part is that every single item listed below is less than $30!

LOVE that pencil skirt - the vertical stripes are SO cute, and so are both ways you styled it!

You styled the pencil skirt we were both eyeing - I love it!

These looks are perfect for the 4th, too. I think I am digging the laid back look - especially with those sandals. Cool & casual.

Love both, especially those ALDO flats! Not sure I could pull off a pencil skirt and flats like this but I'd def. wear with a pair of major heels like you found!

I love it! What a great piece to match with EVERYTHING.

The skirt looks slimming for sure, although for those of us who stopped growing at 5'3" (to focus on other interests), that length is not as flattering, especially with flats. I think if I were to wear that skirt I would hem it a few inches so it fell just above the knee.

I like both of these styling options. I look forward to seeing you wear this skirt soon!
