Erin’s outfit breakdown:
Her off-white chiffon top has a fun skull print that brings a little edge to her tangerine-orange pencil skirt. Tangerine is a must for the year – the Pantone Color Institute even named it the color of 2012 – and Erin balances the bright skirt with the neutral top well.
The top was a steal for $14 at TJ Maxx – a great place to find fashionable and affordable pieces. The skirt is from Express and cost $35. Erin’s killer accessories really bring her outfit together. The shoes were her major splurge at $60, but the black, strappy flats with studded accents on the heels are true to Erin’s soft-edge style.
Her black fringe bag from Forever 21– which costs $24 – helps balance out the overall cost of her ensemble and is the outfit’s standout statement piece. Erin brings a sassy, light-hearted edge to her everyday school style.
