Downtown Vibes

Happy(?) Monday! 

I’m thoroughly convinced I could spend the whole weekend sleeping and still feel as if I didn’t get enough…

And of course my chunky monkey made a cameo ! 
I remember when Topshop first opened in NYC. Everyone was so excited and meanwhile young & naive Linda found the SoHo store completely overwhelming and frankly a more expensive Forever21 experience. Since then I’ve tried to get along with Topshop…every time a blogger posted something from the store that I would like, in I would go feeling hopeful….and out I would walk empty handed. The moral of this story… Topshop and I just didn’t get along. 
Which is funny because I recently fell in love (like?) with the store. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect denim skirt. Like any self respecting fashion girl I obviously wanted the Alexa Chung x AG version. And like any self respecting assistant in fashion, didn’t want to shell out a pretty penny for a denim skirt that might end up just being a trend….plus it’s now sold out everywhere. I don’t know how, but this search led me to scrolling through the Topshop skirt section, but I was really impressed…in the “I purchased four skirts in the matter of one week” way. 
This one stood out to me instantly. I love the pattern, the buttons all down the front and the a-line style. And since it’s super comfortable I can honestly see this being a go-to piece for me for the summer and I’m totally excited to style it a million and one different ways.

  • I love black and white printed skirts. I think they are so fun, easy and go with soooo many things. And dang, four skirts in one week! That's got to be some top notch quality to keep you coming back for more. (;
    Your pup is so precious! Can't wait to see this skirt styled more ways and I hope you have a great week!

  • OMG that bag!!

    What a cute skirt! I love Topshop and I love this skirt. I don't usually buy too many things from them since they can get pretty pricey but they do have so many cute things. And you got the purse! So cute!

  • It's so funny, I don't own anything from Topshop! Every time I've picked up a piece I think I might like, I look at the price tag, and quickly put it down. I may have to give them another chance. You look adorable in this outfit! The bag is a great contrast to the neutrals in this look.

  • I remember I waited at the Topshop line for an hour on their opening day, found it too pricey for what it was (my hs clothing budget was much smaller), and ending up leaving with a hideous $40 scarf that I stopped wearing after about a year. They definitely have such cute clothes but I find it hard to justify the price when their clothes seem to fit me so awfully 🙁 They do have the cutest button down skirts! I've been eying the white one but now that you've shown me this printed one I want it even more! It looks so cute with your bright blue bag 🙂 Also, your puppy is so adorable!


  • Hello beautiful Linda!!!! Love your skirt very much! I have been looking for an A-line skirt like that but haven't had any luck. We don't have a Topshop here in Orlando and it is kind of challenging for me to buy online sometime especially when I don't know how the clothes fit. I will make sure I stop by next time I visit NY city which hopefully will be soon! Yay! I love the way you styled it and the beautiful picture of you and your super cute pup. Hope all is going great with you, your family and your new job. Always thinking about you:-) XOXO, Jeannette
