I have never worn this skirt because I wasn't quite sure what to pair with it, but after seeing it on Jessica of What I Wore, I was inspired to pair it with a white button down. I didn't really like the way it looked tucked in on me, so I decided to tie it in the front, which is totally old school (I did it in middle school!) but I liked the way it turned out.
Love the colors of this skirt! I feel like this is a good transition piece, and I love the charcoal, seafoam, and yellow combination. Totally wearable with both tights and bare legs.
I love, love my Rebecca Minkoff MAC. It has been extremely versatile and useful while living in New York City. It's amazing how much I can fit in there, and I can wear it crossbody very easily. This is especially handy when I have a million bags in my hand (such as when I make a Trader Joe's run) and I just really don't have the energy to keep a bag on my shoulder. This orange one adds a pop of color to my darker coats and I have been wearing it non stop!
This American Eagle necklace was a steal at $19.50! A lot of their jewelry is very teeny-bopper, but I have definitely found several items there are that very cute and affordable at the same time. I think it adds just the right touch of sparkle to a simple outfit such as this one. I get compliments on this necklace all the time, and I think people are surprised when I say it's from American Eagle.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who is unhappy with the drop in temperature! Sunshine, where are you???? I long to stroll through the park, prance outside with bare legs, and eat gelato on the street, but I guess I can settle for a chai latte, brie & pear brioche, and reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is an excellent read so far, very intriguing. It took me awhile to get into it but now I can't stop. I bought it in e-book version, to use with my Barnes & Noble e-reader on my Blackberry, so I read it while I'm waiting for the subway, walking the dog, seriously anytime I have a spare minute. I have been known to carry a book around with me all the time, but now the e-reader saves me the trouble. I still love reading real books, but for a portable alternative the e-reader is perfect.
I named my post "Bend & Snap" because I can't stop listening to the Legally Blonde Musical soundtrack!! So good! (Oh my god, oh my god you guys~) I've never seen the musical but my sister put the soundtrack on my iPod and it's just so darn catchy.
*Some have asked about the Paris skyline from my previous post, it is actually a wall decal that I purchased from amazon here.
*Regarding the Flight of Swans dress, I've decided to keep it and work with it! I can always decide to sell later.
