Check Mate

Skirt: ModCloth | Purse: Fossil (similar here) | Shoes: Crossroads Trading 

Currently in Chicago where the weather is a solid 75 and the sun is shining – a nice (albeit brief) departure from San Francisco. 

If we're being honest, I kind of forget what warm weather feels like so I've made it a point to wear skirts and dresses – you know, just to really get in the mood. 

I've been super into retro things as of late and I thought this skirt from ModCloth was the perfect mix of fun and retro (because of the silhouette). I paired it with a soft pink blouse and of course, a denim jacket because YOU JUST NEVER KNOW. 

I also would LOVE some additional help on how to style this bad boy – with a crop top? Band t-shirt?! HALP!
