Yes, this outfit is a bit pricier than usual, but I had to find a way to use the skirt. It was imperative.
This skirt is very Kim Novak in Vertigo. I love the way it drapes and folds. Paired with the simple blouse and the pumps, it really lets the skirt shine.
I chose blue accessories because I didn’t want to over do it. I was trying to maintain a subtle sophistication. And of course, if you’re going to channel a movie star, you need the movie star shades.
“It’s my blog and I want to showcase bright yellow pants!” That was the phrase heard last night when I was talking to my Mom on the phone. It could have been just the strep-induced fever, or maybe I just like this pants, who knows?
I love the green necklace with the yellow. I think it’s so fresh and summery, and perfect for a night strolling down the city streets to an event. And while these shoes are not perfect, I really wanted a wooden heel to lighten up the look. Which is why I also chose the straw clutch and the vintage-y sunnies.
Allow me to set the scene: Sangria, bacon-fried dates, sitting on the cobblestones next to Jaleo, chatting about life. This is the kind of easy, breezy outfit that is perfect for cocktails on the roof deck and good conversation.
I love the big stone bracelet, it’s a great statement piece to dress up any outfit. And the skirt’s fruit punch color is great for warm weather or with navy and grey separates in the cool weather.
