Golden Hour



Sometimes I just feel like getting dressed up for no reason...I find it to be a great mood-lifter, especially after a couple days of being stuck inside the house.  Now, I will be the first to admit that wearing ensembles like this isn't really practical for my day-to-day routine with the kids.  But, I do love beautiful pieces with unique details...like this bright blouse.  The colorblocked design is utterly modern, but the draped shoulder detail & tie sash give it such a feminine feel.  If your style is more relaxed, try disassembling these pieces & wear the top with slim-cut trousers for the office or pair the skirt with a simple tee & flats for the weekend.  





What I'm wearing:
Jealous Tomato top c/o QuestHaven Fashions (here), Allen B. skirt (similar), Zara heels (similar here or here), Stella & Dot ring (here), Stripes + Sequins earrings (here), Zara clutch (similar here or here), Nails: Sally Hansen Mint SorbetLips: Revlon Moon Drops Hot Coral

Wow. You look stunning in this outfit! I especially love the lighting in the last picture, you look amazing! I really love how you paired this bright shirt with a neutral long flowy skirt. I always seem to have trouble finding a skirt that is long that doesn't look awkward on me, but after seeing this the hunt is back on!

xoxo,
