Hello and happy Monday! A return from the weekend always calls for a bit of something comforting yet stylish to begin the week in a fresh and open state of mind.  And with warmer weather now approaching, I love reaching for some nice, easy layers that look sort of effortless yet chic and you can easily remove as temperatures take off.  

Midi skirts are really what I find to be an underutilized piece that almost every wardrobe could get a lot of use out of.  I'm not sure why they are under the radar as much as they are but in any case, I happen to love them in bold color-blocked patterns like this one I'm styling here.

The black and cream colors are perfect for anytime of year quite honestly but of course, I'm thinking about styling it for spring right now.  So with that being the goal, a classic white t-shirt goes to work perfectly with this look.  I love it tucked in allowing for the waist to be showen off a bit.  And, if there is still as slight chill in the air, then an oversized denim jacket is the just right complement to the overall look.  I happen to think this one works not only with this particular outfit but it would also be one you could wear with some straight, high-waisted white or cream denim as well as shorts if the weather called for it.

As you know by now, I love trainers with just about everything nowadays and this look really works well with them to give it a very laid back and casual sort of feel.  A seek low bun, my favorite sunnies of the moment and some gold hoops would finish the look off in grand style.

Need a look that's a bit more dressed up for a spring or summer occasion?  Then this skirt paired with a lovely black tank and some gorgeous nude heels would easily fit that bill as well.

I do really tend to love when my favorite pieces can work overtime in my closet, don't you?  I hope this has given you some new style inspiration to begin your week.  No matter which look you chose, I know you will wear it well.  Thanks so much for reading.  See you in the next post!
