I'm in such a spring state of mind right now, I only have eyes for bold prints and vibrant colors. I just found this skirt and really couldn't wait to wear it, even with the cold weather this weekend. I like that the fabric and stripes seem to add a sporty feel to what would have otherwise been an elegant (and possibly boring) silhouette. I wore an American Apparel v-neck underneath, which would have been perfect on its own, but it was too chilly to go without a sweater. I need some warm weather so this baby can really stretch its legs.

No argument from me - warm weather is needed! But that cardigan is quite lovely unto itself, so I don't mind it's presence.

Daphne said...

Love the skirt and the necklace. I found a dress very similar to this skirt in my mom's closet. From the 70's. I might add a sweater like this and wear it as a skirt as well. Great inspiration.

Marie a la Mode said...

That skirt is probably my favorite piece of your wardrobe! Not that I've seen your whole wardrobe but from what I HAVE seen, that skirt takes the cake. It is unREAL!

Katelyn said...

That skirt is awesome! Also, love the way you styled it with that necklace and shoes.
