If denim is a staple in your wardrobe, as it is in mine, a denim skirt is a great basic to have on hand for the warmer weather. Today’s ootd is with a classic white denim skirt, simple cardigan, cotton tank top, and comfy sandals, similar here.
Denim skirts come in all shapes and lengths, but I’m usually drawn to the simple classic ones with 5 pocket styling and a mid-length that hovers around my knee area. They’re most flattering when they end at a spot where your leg narrows so I opt for ones that end just below my knee like this one.
Women wear shorts all the time, yet some avoid skirts because their legs show. Hmmm… our legs show in shorts too which aren’t as comfy as most skirts.
This super comfy skirt comes in sizes 0/XS – 20/22. It’s knee-length which varies with your height and for me, it hits just below my knee. The no-stain fabric has plenty of Lycra so it moves with you. The sides have a 4 1/2″ slit which helps when you need to climb in and out of the car.
I love that a white denim skirt can be dressed up or down with your choice of top, shoes, and accessories.

This cardigan is a cotton/viscose blend that’s a breathable fabric that will keep you cool on hot days. It comes in 7 colors, sizes XXS – XXL. The 3/4 sleeves have been requested by readers so I was thrilled to find one at such a budget-friendly price. I’m wearing a small which is plenty roomy so if you’re between sizes, I suggest you order down. This kind of little cardi also looks cute worn buttoned up as a top.
This classic cotton tank is one of those simple pieces I find invaluable during the summer. This wardrobe staple is perfect for layering but you can also wear it alone because the straps are wide enough to cover bra straps. It comes in 5 colors sizes 0-2 – 16 (18W). It runs true to size but I went up to a medium to keep it loose and easy to wear.
My woven earrings and pendant necklace are part of Dean Davidson’s latest woven collection. It draws inspiration from the basket-making on the island of Bali with gold strands woven together to form a remarkable texture. Each DD piece is made with his signature brushed 22-Karat Gold Finish and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
How cute is this fire-engine red golf cart? I don’t golf and have no earthly reason to own one, but if I did, this would fit the bill beautifully. There’s just something about tiny, shiny, red, and cute, that I find very appealing.
I finished this look with tan sandals, similar here, and here and a braided belt in the same shade of tan, similar here and here. Tan is a great neutral for shoes, bags, belts, etc with white. Metallics also work nicely and won’t overpower pale colors.
