Periwinkled


Thankfully, we had done some outfit shoots last weekend before all this crazy snow arrived...when you could still see the grass & the road.  Although it's been a mild winter this year, I am so ready for it to be over & have pretty much started living in denial.  My solution for the cold-weather blues?  Break out pieces from my spring wardrobe & just pretend that it's warm & sunny (even if I'm only wearing them around the house).  And on days when it's far too frigid for this, I'll paint my nails a summery coral & swipe on a Barbie pink lipstick - every little bit helps!




What I'm wearing:
Collective Concepts blouse, LOFT skirt (sold out online - check your local stores; similar style in navy here), J. Crew necklace, Banana Republic bracelets (DIY instructions here), J. Crew clutch, JS by Jessica pumps (here), Nails: Essie California Coral, Lips: NARS Roman Holiday

Based on you and Ying's posts today, I totally realized I need more colorful skirts in my closeet. I have almost the exact same polka dot shirt from Old Navy. Happy Friday!

Hey, great outfit! Just out of curiosity, what do you wear under your sheer blouses? Nude cami? Just a bra? I never know what to put on underneath...

I had this skirt in hand but for some crazy reason decided to put it down. The next day I tried going online and getting it, but as you said, it's sold out :-( I'm going to get out to my closest Loft to see if they have any left...I really should have gotten it before, it's soooo cute!
