Pop of Red

Hello! Photographed above is my outfit from yesterday. At last, my black circle skirt that I keep raving about is present on my blog. I know that my black circle skirt has been MIA on my blog but it has also been MIA in my dorm room. 

Originally, I bought a simple black circle skirt at H&M before I headed off to college for around $20 and I was stoked to wear it this fall. So pretty much as soon as I was settled in at school (maybe after a week or so), I broke out my circle skirt and paired it with a striped top for a day spent in the city. However, I didn't get a chance to take any photos of my outfit that day. 

A few days later, as I was planning out my outfits, I wanted to wear my black circle skirt again but to my dismay, I couldn't find it. It had never been washed so I tore my dorm room apart looking for it. Still no luck finding it. Several weeks passed and I still couldn't find the skirt- I even moved my bed and wardrobe in an unsuccessful attempt to find it. 

By the end of September, I finally gave up on trying to find my first black circle skirt and ordered another one (in a slightly different style) from H&M online. Unfortunately, it took the skirt about a month to get here. I think that it must have been out of stock when I ordered it. But I am so glad that I ordered another black circle skirt. I seriously am obsessed with this skirt. Now, if only I can manage to keep track of this skirt.

For my look yesterday, I styled my black circle skirt with a gray and black unicorn-printed crop top followed by a sheer white blouse. The way that the print of the crop top peeks through the sheer blouse has me falling in love with the combo. To draw out the gray in my crop top, I slipped on a pair of gray oxfords and gray lace socks. 

Since the color scheme of the base of my outfit was so minimalistic, I spiced things up with accessories. Although you can barely see it in these photos, I styled a jaunty, rhinestone necklace with my look for a burst of glam. This faux rhinestone necklace was sent to me complimentary of ShopLately to feature on my blog. This necklace is the "Chunky Crystal Chain Statement Necklace" sold by Kristin Perry Accessories and retails for $20 with free shipping. You can check it out HERE. This necklace was most definitely a good pick- I love how it can add a dose of glam to any look. A pop of red lipstick and my red kitty-cat phone case perfected my outfit.
