Hello hello.

Welcome ( back ) to theintimatebrunette. Today’s post as you can tell is a linkup with two blogs J Petite & Pucker Up Style.

I’ve been reading this linkup for a while now, but as always with blogging, it takes confidence to share and today I’ve finally worked up that confidence to just DO IT.

This week their linkup theme is ‘mauve lips’ or ‘chambray’ so YOU KNOW I hopped on the ‘chambray’ train…

I have always been a huge fan of denim anything, chambray anything – give me it all.

And this top has been one of my go-to’s for the longest time. I’ve owned this for the most obnoxious amount of time, like basically six years & I am not the least bit ashamed of that. When you find a ride or die item, you hold on to it.

I use it as a shirt, as a cover up, tied around my waist or as a layering piece. I pair it with just about everything from jeans to shorts to skirts.

I recently picked this skirt up from Banana Republic when I was out shopping with my mom and my aunt and to be real, I’ve NEVER stepped foot in a BR and actually looked around to shop for me, but they were taking forev so I looked around.

This skirt caught my eye and then I picked it up. In TWO colours. I loved it that much.

It’s the perfect skirt for fall ( and school placement later this year! ) because it’s thick and really comfy, PLUS it’s long enough that it keeps you covered.

OK I’m off to watch Bachelor In Paradise until I fall asleep… #teamAmanda&Nickforever
