When I Use It: “This adorable skirt is perfect when combined with a cozy sweater for a blissful autumn date, or worn as a maxi dress and paired with a cute belt for a simple day out!”

Shopping Tips: “I find that it’s good to glance over an aisle to look for a unique texture or pattern. I can usually find my favorite closet items when I do so! Whether it be shopping at a thrift store or at H&M, it’s best to love what you buy at first glance than to second-guess yourself.”
