Simple Elegance

After having my picture taken in all types of different outfits, I think one of the biggest lessons I've learned is the importance of proportions.  I always say that knowing how to dress to flatter your shape is the key to feeling your absolute best!  I love a good midi skirt, but I know I need to pair mine with a more fitted or slightly cropped top & heels to highlight the smallest part of my figure & balance out my curves.  

When this sleek ribbed tank arrived, I instantly knew I wanted to pair it with a high-waisted skirt for a feminine date night look.  I love the crisscross detail in back and that it hits at just the right spot so I can still wear a strapless bra without worrying about the band showing.  I initially had planned to throw a denim jacket on top, but we had nearly 80-degree weather this week so I didn't even need it.  Words can't describe how happy that made me!

I'm already thinking of other creative ways to style this top - layered over a silk button-down or with a striped tee underneath, paired with jeans.  This top is also a similar style but it has a more conservative cut for those who want more coverage.  If you're new to this brand, Everlane is well-known for high quality wardrobe basics & full transparency when it comes to pricing (read more here).  Some of my other favorites from their line include this linen stripe sweater, this white poplin dress & this pleated skirt (nearly identical to the one I'm wearing here!).

What I'm wearing:
c/o Everlane Crop Top (also in navy), J.O.A. Skirt (similar here or here), 
c/o Kenneth Cole Heels (more sizes here), Clare V Clutch (similar save, spend or splurge), 
Madewell Necklace, Madewell Earrings (identical), Madewell Cuff
Madewell Ring, Old Navy Sunglasses (similar), 
Nails: Essie Sunshine State of Mind, Lips: L'Oreal Volcanic
