While in NYC, I stayed with my dear friend Wendy who now lives on the east coast (to my delight : ). Somehow, she doesn’t own a single full-length mirror, which is an anomaly for anyone trying to put together a decent outfit let alone a fashion blogger! I’ll admit this did speed up the getting-ready process each morning, since I just prayed each outfit looked ok rather than change a dozen times!
For this outfit I did a play on complementary colors (opposites on the color wheel), but with more muted shades of coral and steely gray in lieu of bright orange and blue. I kept wearing this skirt because I love the print and how comfy it is, not realizing how the length looked on me.
The hem hits at an awkward “in-between” spot against my legs and would be more flattering either longer or shorter, so I’ll be getting this shortened to fit like on the model. The stretchy waist runs pretty small, the jersey is soft to the touch, and I love that there are functional pockets. It’s my first Yumi Kim piece and makes me excited to try more from the brand.
Here is this sweater tank yet again in the third way I’ve worn it on this trip (see it also styled here with shorts and here with jeans): tucked into a printed skirt and topped off with a differently-textured jacket. The faux suede material on my jacket is like a velvety fabric, and the weight is on the thin side with a full lining.
I’m wearing the petite sizing in this jacket, which is unfortunately almost sold out in gray (found a few remaining here) but still available in a pretty mink color. In regular sizing, the same “faux suede biker jacket” comes in over TEN fall-ready colors and is fully in-stock in the same gray color. FYI Missguided is a UK fast fashion brand which runs smaller than most American stores, not to mention this jacket style is very cropped, so the regular sizing might still work on someone petite.
