The Skort Suit

This summer, I'm skirting, no skorting the rules! It's far to hot for a full suit, so I switched things up with a skorted suit. If that wasn't enough, I'm also adding a pop of pink to brighten everything up!

Skort: c/o Lulus - a summer must have - also loving this green one
Top: Asos sleeveless button up - a great basic - actually prefer this revolve one!
I am also loving the idea of a button up with a built in bow like this Asos one
Blazer: Thrifted - loving this Alice & Olivia one, also comes in white!
Bow: Asos (it actually came with a top) similar here and here or in peach here!
Shoes: Joe Fresh Shoes (On Sale in Store) // Similar round toe on sale here
Purse: Coach Bleeker Pinnacle Crossbody in Painted Snake - obsessed with this one

Last summer I was all about the origami skort - it's just such an easy option, especially for NYC heat! I picked up the skort last summer in three colors and couldn't wait to pull it out again. Zara was the first to mass market the skort, but so many other retailers and have started selling similar styles in bright colors and for such a steal - so I was ticked pink when Lulus sent me this neon skort! I actually prefer the Lulus design to the Zara one because it's a little more fitted and high waisted! I have to pin my Zara skort even in the smallest size to make it fit right, but the Lulus one for a lower price fits perfectly and right along my waist so i can tuck in tops with ease. Let's just say I'm in love and might have to pick up the mint green option as well, swoon!
What do you think of the skort trend from last year? Is it a hit or miss?
