Meet Azure: World's Most Versatile Skirt

I've got a whole lotta of love and one critical piece of constructive advice to share about LuLaRoe Key Piece #4: Azure Skirt, black, courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Amy Homan.

So Right, It's Wrong

First, the bad news. Azure is sized all sorts of wrong.

Actually - no. Azure is sized all sorts of right. 

Confused yet? 

By the time Amy contacted me to offer up a black Azure skirt for the capsule, I thought I'd finally wrapped my head around LuLaRoe's cray interpretation of the metric system. In real life I wear a 6/28 pant. In a LuLaRoe Cassie skirt, I float away in a M. So naturally I requested an XS Azure. 

Imagine my frustration when I pulled on my new Azure and it fit like, well, an XS. Tight.

Lesson:  Order your true size in Azure. 

The Good News

Azure is the most versatile skirt ever! I styled it as a skirt, as a trapeze top, over a Julia dress and under a cinched Perfect Tee. In every instance - power proportions!  

Take a look.

The Woman Who Wore 2 Skirts

For my first act, I styled Azure as a trapeze top over a cheetah print Cassie skirt (courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Lorean Bradley). See what I mean about power proportions? When worn as a top, Azure's fitted bodice and swingy hem make it a perfect strapless accompaniment to the slim lines of a Cassie skirt. Throw on a cropped jacket and you could get away with this outfit at the office. After 5, lose the blazer and head for happy hour.

Let's say happy hour ended at 8AM, on someone else's couch. No Judgement! No worries! After a simple shirt to skirt swap and shoe switch, no one's the wiser. It's a totally different outfit! Who says a cheetah can't change its spots? 

I'm So Over Julia

Outfit #3 features yet another garment re-interpretation: my girl Julia Coral as a top under Azure. A scarf-turned-belt adds detail at the waist while cheetah wedges remind your co-workers about your true nature and last week's wild Wednesday night.  

A Cinch to Style

For the last look of this collection, I play up Azure's classic a-lines with a billowy bottomed Perfect Tee. At first attempt, Azure + Perfect Tee was an imperfect pairing; the top's handkerchief hem just, well, hung. With one little twist (at the mid-back on the inside of the Perfect Tee, adhered with a hair tie) the proportions are perfected. A cinch to style!

Surprisingly, The Perfect Tee

"What did I get myself into?" I wondered, shooting an incredulous glance at the mirror. 

With elbow length sleeves, two curious side slits and a questionable bell shaped hem, the black and white striped LuLaRoe Perfect Tee I received from Consultant Lorean Bradley, looked more like a confused mini dress than something I would describe as a tee shirt.

After a few minutes pondering the top's odd silhouette I remembered Cheryl mentioning something about knots. 

"Ahhhhh.....!" A lightbulb went off and I started to play. 

Aspirational Athleisure

For Outfit #1, I knotted the LuLaRoe Perfect Tee in front and paired it with solid grey leggings (courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Cheryl Holloway) and my fresh grey New Balances. From there, I elevated a potentially super casual look by adding a Hermes scarf as a head wrap (the red print picks up on the sneakers), loaded on mixed metal David Yurman and Kendra Scott arm candy and finished the look with a Louis Vuitton pouch I scored on Poshmark for like $100. 

Not So Neutral Territory

Outfit #2 is so stinking cute I want to marry it. AMIRIGHT? If you are new to print mixing, start with black and white stripes and an animal print - like this cheetah print Cassie skirt, also from LuLaRoe Consultant Lorean Bradley. It's a no fail "Damn, she's chic!" formula.

I styled the LuLaRoe top and skirt with my trusty Joie army green anorak (you need a jacket like this in your life, #trust), strappy DVF platform heels and a metallic crackle YSL Muse bag I bought for full price in the days before daycare. The outfit is topped with a pop of orange via an epic Mother's Day gift, my beloved Hermes Collier de Chien Cuff.

Who needs disposable income when you have two toddlers with great taste?

French Dressing

When paired with a black LuLaRue Azure skirt (courtesy of LuLaRue Consultant Amy Homan), Outfit #3 plays up the striped Perfect Tee's Parisian vibe with an Hermes scarf as necktie and strappy gold DVF sandals. My orange Hermes cuff is just the French Kiss this look needs to seal the outfit deal. Tres jolie!
