Although my tendency to shop hasn't come to an absolute halt (I'm working on it, honest), I have been shopping smarter. It doesn't make sense to add a ton of new clothes to my wardrobe right now so I've only been focused on buying essential pieces or things that really make a statement.

I bought this A-line denim skirt from Zara a couple of weeks ago for two reasons:
  1.  I wanted to have at least one version of a classic wardrobe staple in my closet.  
  2. The statements

To make this look complete, I slid into an off shoulder top from Missguided, white tennis shoes from ASOS, and I decided to wear my favorite hoop earrings again. This look is short, sweet and to the point...kind of like me lol.
