Every once and awhile a piece comes along that possess the power to catapult you into fashion territories far beyond your own comfort zone. The moment I spotted this XOXO pencil skirt, the wheels started turning. Obviously smitten, I needed to find a way to make it me. In order to achieve an "everyday" makeover, I dressed it down a bit by adding my favorite denim jacket. The vivid colors and floral print effortlessly echoes the season, while the denim provides a neutral layer that let's the skirt shine. There is a certain sophistication that a pencil skirt brings to an ensemble that no other piece can and this curve-hugging, floral party, is a wardrobe staple that every trendy girl needs in her wardrobe this summer. One of the reasons I've fallen madly in love with XOXO recently is because their clothing is truly feminine, sexy, and trend conscious. It's a day to evening lifestyle brand with attainable price points, which is a total requirement for this time of year; saving for that next weekend getaway is a welcomed task between May and August. You can find your favorite XOXO pieces at Macy’s, Dillard’s & Carson’s stores, as well as Macys.com, Dillards.com and Amazon.com.
