{Back in Black for Spring with AKIRA}

Happy April, everyone! I feel like I have been so MIA on the blog for 2018. Hopefully y’all haven’t noticed that as much has I have. I don’t know if I just haven’t felt motivated to shoot as much or write content but I am definitely trying to get out of this funk. This has been one of the busiest years of my styling company so it’s been hard to juggle both jobs with such little time to dedicate to both. SO, while I actually have a little free time I wanted to get one of my favorite looks up! I shot this gorgeous high-low skirt set early last month and completely fell in love.

I know I’ve expressed my obsession with anything high-low in the past and this look was absolutely no exception. It’s to the point that if I ever see anything that is high low, it’s going home with me! For real though. Y’all should see my closet!! Sadly, this skirt sold out in the blink of an eye but I have linked a couple similar options that would definitely be stunning to wear.

The majority of this look is on sale or extremely affordable! This crop top is so perfect for Spring and is only $15!! It actually fits true to size and fits extremely well. I am wearing a size small for those interested. These earrings have been another favorite of mine since last Fall and I am still wearing them into Summer! And let’s talk about this super cute straw bag! You should see the amount of straw bags that have invaded my closet in the last month. I don’t know why, but I am stocking up on these things like they are going out of style. Which they aren’t!! This cutie is priced under $60 and is such a great size!!

    This is such a gorgeous statement set! Love the structure of the skirt. I’ve totally been in a funk too this year, especially with the blog. I’ve come to learn that you just have to embrace the ups + downs πŸ™‚

    […] great thing about this style is that they can be extremely subtle or exaggerated. Funny enough, my last blog post featured a gorgeous high low skirt. That skirt would definitely be an exaggerated high low style. […]
