Great post! The 2nd and 3rd looks are my favorite, but all 4 of them are great. And I love your accessories in each outfit.

Ok, this is a tough one because you look fantastic in all four outfits but still I have favourites. The second and third, can't decide which one I like more. In the first look the boots are irritating me. Otherwise it also looks great. :-) Have a lovely day! xo, Christina

I love these! I really need to find a chambray shirt, they're always sold out in my size.

Oh yes! My favorite segment of your blog!!! Oh jeez, I love them all! If I had to pick just one it would be the one with the stripe skirt, I have all those pieces and can recreate it!

I too love all the looks, but the second one really jumped out at me! I love the skirt and it looks so put together. And the shoes are spot on!

Alyson said...

Absolutely love them all though might be partial to the stripes! So many elements here to admire. Great feature. I did how to wear something two ways... four is really kicking it up! :)

I literally just bought a chambray shirt earlier this week so this post could not have come at a better time! I think the last look is my favorite - I Pinned it to my Outfit Inspiration board!

Catherine @ Not Dressed As Lamb said...

I love all these looks, but my favourite is def. the black shorts - the bowtie and red bag are the perfect accessories! You look so stunning!

Today's post on my blog is on the versatility of a chambray shirt too. Lol!

Love your looks Kimberly! My favorite is #1 - the white jeans, leopard print scarf and boots are perfect. Now that I have a white blazer, a pairing with my chambray shirt has definitely been one I've thought of too! Great post! ;)

I love all of these outfits! The outfit with the white blazer is perfect for early spring. LOVE those sandals in the outfit with the striped skirt, but the shorts outfit wins hands down! It's so chic and fun-and those shorts are so gorgeous! How did I miss those??

The fourth look is my favorite - I just love it! I think I'm going on a hunt for a chambray shirt this weekend!

Also, what polish are you wearing on your toes? Is it the same as the one on your fingers? I've been all about colors like that recently. :)
