I am really into the tribal thing right now.  Some of the patterns are ugly, but for the most part, I like the statement a good tribal makes.  Really, with something so bold, the rest of the outfit can (and should) be pretty understated – aka easy to throw together.

Case in point, this outfit.  It’s probably one of the least accessorized outfits I’ve ever worn.  Pretty blouse, cute earrings, flat sandals with a touch of gold – done.  But, because the skirt is doing all the hard work, no one even pays attention to the fact that I’m not wearing a bracelet, necklace, belt, or any other statement piece (or to the fact that I have dark circles under my eyes…but that’s a different story).  The skirt demands all the attention and everything else is just a supporting character.
