     If there's one thing that I have to say about my sense of style, it's that I like things to be colorful. The more color, sparkles, florals, or prints the better!! Spring and summer fashion are my favorites over fall and winter fashion because I much prefer the fun, bright color schemes. So this outfit that I put together for this post for my collaboration with British fashion brand Oasis was definitely out of my comfort zone! But I think I actually liked it... ;-) 

     You might remember that a few weeks ago I did a blog post letting all of my Southern readers know about an awesome music festival happening in Raleigh, NC this weekend, and a sweepstakes sponsored by the British clothing store Oasis that could get you free tickets to the festival as well as a big Oasis shopping spree! I worked on this blog post with Jacki from Style House Public Relations, and she was able to arrange a fashion collaboration for me with Oasis as well! 

     The item that I chose to style from their collection was this darling scalloped black pencil skirt. Every girl needs at least one black pencil skirt in her closet- this is such an essential staple item! I love the scallped detail on this one, it adds such a fun feminine twist! There are endless ways that I could have styled this skirt, but for this post I wanted to step outside of my fashion comfort zone and do an all black and white outfit. (And continue to be outside my comfort zone with bright red lips! I almost never wear red lipstick.)

     I think that this outfit would be perfect for the office for any working girls, or for fellow college girls this would be a great sorority chapter meeting outfit or perfect for acing a job or internship interview! I felt so professional while wearing it. :-) I can't wait to see what other ways I will style this fun Oasis skirt in! 

     Below I have shared some of my other favorite Oasis fashion pieces for y'all!! Even though Oasis is a British based fashion brand they ship to the US and over 20 other countries!

  2. You look great. It's a lovely outfit. I prefer Spring colors as well.

  3. I've never seen a cute scalloped edge, professional-looking skirt before! I love it. It's the perfect flair to an otherwise career-oriented outfit.
