Outfit Post: Throwback Thursday with Boohoo

Today, I've teamed up with Boohoo as part of their Throwback Thursday Style Icon series. Have you shopped Boohoo before? They're an amazing UK-based retailer site with tons (and I mean TONS) of affordable fashion selections. They've got everything from dresses, rompers, accessories and midi skirts.

When I started thinking about style icons, there were a few that came to mind. But the one who stood out to me the most was, obviously SJP's character Carrie Bradshaw. I love that she takes risks and wears what she wants - something I try to to emulate in my daily wardrobe choices. Sure, maybe not everything I do works, but I enjoy playing with clothes and fashion. It's supposed to be fun! Remember that iconic outfit from the 2nd Sex and the City movie? This one:

I've always loved this outfit because of the idea of mixing casual pieces with more dressier items. It's something I do A LOT. Plus it helps stretch your clothing further. (Did you know that skirt is actually the underskirt of a Zac Posen gown? So amazing!)

So, naturally I wanted to re-create a similar style and throw it back to Carrie's amazing "Abu Dhabi Souk" outfit.

How To Wear Midi Skirt for Spring

I totally wanted to have a Carrie Bradshaw moment with this floral print midi skirt and an afternoon event I attended last Saturday was the perfect occasion. Since it started at 1:00 pm, I paired it with one of my favorite, but totally neutral, tees. This way the skirt didn't feel too dressed up for an afternoon fashion show.

Not only is this skirt oh-so #TBT Carrie Bradshaw, but the large floral print makes it perfect for spring! I can't wait to style it in several other ways. Oh and did I mention it has a matching crop top that goes with it. That too, can totally be a Carrie Bradshaw moment!

  1. Love your outfit! Totally agree about mixing casual pieces with dressier pieces! You picked my favorite Carrie outfit of all time! I love the skirt and it's awesome to know it's actually an underskirt. Who would have thought.
