[Welcome to Celebrity Chic on the Cheap, where our style guru takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you, our poor college fashionista. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble (for basics!!) you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire look. For cheap. Yes, we know – there is a spot for her in heaven.]
Kourtney Kardashian is totally my favorite Kardashian sister (no, I’m not ashamed that I even have a fave). Did you know that she’s the only one who went to college? Not that I don’t respect a career path that includes being Paris Hilton’s bestie/leaking a sex tape/capitalizing on having a booty that is basically a work of art or…what is it that Khloe does?
But I appreciate that Kourtney at least didn’t expect to make “shameless fame seeker” her bread and butter, and if the 85736837349 hours of Kardashian footage on E! is to be believed, she is actually interested in being a successful businesswoman.
So basically, I like her/mildly pay attention to her because she’s kind of normal. But moreso because, while her taste in men isn’t top notch (more like bottom of the douchey barrel), her taste in fashion totally is. And this particular outfit’s got me jonesing for a shopping spree.
What I love most about this outfit is how totally simple it is, without being dull or boring. The floral skirt is so fun and bold, and all of the other pieces are subdued, so it’s a totally low-maintenance ensemble. I also love that Kourtney is rocking a bright belt that brings out the colors of her skirt – it’s so playful and sassy, without being too gaudy. And her nude strappy sandals are interesting and sexy to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to the look while not taking the attention away from the skirt.
For the ladies who live in climates that actually resemble fall and can’t really strut in strappy sandals year round, this outfit is easy to transition. Just throw on a neutral (for this outfit, I’d go with black) cardigan, some tights and a pair of knee-high boots, and you’re good to go, day or night!
