Ain’t Nothin’ But a Houndstooth

The last time I wore this houndstooth a-line skirt I was a little unsure of the shape with my body type. Typically I stick with pencil skirts (which y’all know of course!) simply because of my slimmer hips and straighter midsection. Pairing it with a looser fit chambray made me feel larger, but when I happened to throw it on with a fitted long sleeve tee, I realized how much more this shape flattered my houndstooth skirt to work with long sleeve tee and bootiesIt should have been a no-brainer that a fuller bottom would look best with a more slim cut top, but for some reason it didn’t occur to me until I tried it out. Even after all this time, I’m still learning about shapes and cuts.

    Isn’t it the best feeling when you have that moment of finding the right top for the right bottom?? LOL! The life of a fashion lover. I am glad you found this top to go with the skirt because it’s just too dang cute not to wear it!!

    I love this skirt on you! I am still learning what shapes look best on me, especially since I’ve gained some weight and my body has changed a little.

    Looking lovely as usual. A full skirt is great for any body shape. I’m skinny on the bottom and A line skirts help balance my shape. Also I follow the wear opposites rule when pairing a top and bottom I.e pair a skinny top with a fuller bottom and vice versa

    I don’t know why you second guessed this skirt, I loved it on you from the beginning! Its fun to mix up the shapes sometimes. Very classy.
