paper cranes.



Zara button up blouse | Zara origami skort | Theyskens' Theory "vala" leather messenger bag | Zara basic leather court heels | Ray-Ban classic wayfarer sunglasses | OPI "Samoan Sand" nail lacquer

When the skort was trending back in the day, I don't think a pair of those ever ended up in my wardrobe. The concept of skirt in the front and shorts in the back just never settled with me. Then this origami skort showed up in Zara's spring '13 collection, and I folded. Pairing white with neutral tones generates the same feeling when making that perfect crease in the paper. I am sure many of you have seen this skort fluttering its wings through out the fashion blogsphere, but can you blame it? Such a beauty and a versatile piece, I don't mind it as a companion to the raven hued origami skirt I already have nestled in my closet. After all, sometimes two is better than one.

This Zara skirt seems to be a staple all over the blogosphere at the moment! I like how you've styled it though. I think that's the key when everyone's wearing it - making it personal to you.
