Summer Essentials Series: What I Can't Live Without by L

Hi kids! I'm thrilled to introduce you to Lacie (aka: L) of Leather and Lace as my second guest blogger for the 'Summer Essentials Series.' L and I went to college together and have been following one another's blogs ever since. L is probably the most hilarious blogger you'll find on the blog-o-sphere. She is seriously hilarious and honest which makes for the best kind of blogging. I'd be lying if I said that L didn't serve as an inspiration for me to start my own blog. Here's what L can't live without this summer . . . . 

black. maxi. skirt. omg. the most wonderful effing item of clothing ever invented in life. i'm 100% obsessed with mine. it may not be the most "summery" item, but Seattle weather can be so annoyingly unpredictable, and this skirt is perfectly versatile. it's long enough to cover your legs on a cold rainy day, but light and breezy when the sun decides to come out. not to mention it's so stupidly comfortable--like wearing pajamas! it also has a stretchy waistband. and i just had a baby. stretchy waistbands don't require wrestling into spanx as a prerequisite, which is entirely amazing. if you don't have a black maxi skirt, get your ass to Target and buy one (purchase here). that's where i got mine! here's just four of the infinite ways to style it . . .

striped tee: Gap; bow headband: Nordstrom

grey tank: Target; white tank sweater: Old Navy; necklace: Anthropologie; sandals: Steve Madden

blouse: Nordstrom; wedges: Old Navy

grey tank: Abercrombie; sweater/sunglasses: Target; sandals: BCBG

I hope you enjoyed this post! Special thanks again to L for sharing her favorite summer essential. Be sure to follow L on Leather and Lace! XO
