I was in the mood for the Turks and Caicos when I styled this outfit.  Too bad I wasn't down there because I think it would have been the perfect setting for this outfit.  One of my favorite purchases this summer was this Opening Ceremony long leopard skirt in silk.  I like the brown and blue colors in it and the fact that it is made in the USA.  It is very high quality and it also has a skirt lining above the knee, but below the knee it is completely sheer.  I don't usually love maxi skirts because they aren't very flattering on most people, but since this one is mostly sheer it allows the silhouette of your legs to show through.  I cannot get enough of leopard and I try to put something leopard print in almost every outfit I wear.  Sometimes I want to double up on leopard pieces in an oufit, but then I remember that you are watching me and I have to look somewhat normal.

The skirt is high waisted enough and long enough to be paired with a crop top.  My second favorite piece I snagged this summer is this Alexander Wang crochet fringe crop top.  It has the most amazing criss cross back detailing and it is very well-made.  Getting it on can be a little bit of a hassle as it has eyelet hooks along the side.  When I first got it I tried to put it on over my head figuring it was just a stretchy top and soon realized it had an eyelet closure.  It didn't stop me from loving the top overall though.  I think the Opening Ceremony skirt and the Alexander Wang crochet top were made for each other, but that is just my opinion.  I was falling asleep in the big black comfy leather office chair that used to belong to my boyfriend's father when I thought of this outfit and I was quite excited so I put it on right away.  Sometimes my best ideas come to me as I am drifting off.  I paired the ensemble with my Miu Miu patchwork t-strap wedges that I snagged last summer at Barneys and some shell earrings by Kori of Little Darling Designs.  I think the shell earrings were the perfect accessory to really finish off the outfit.  Now all I need is a Mango Tango and a blue floaty thing and I am set.
