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.

  39. 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.
