spring showers

sweater (french connection - old)/skirt (madewell)/shoes (vince camuto via Rack, love these)/sunglasses (prada)/purse (marc by marc, check out THIS fabulous designer)

This past weekend I attended a bridal shower for my cousin's future bride (hence the title of this post - my outfit has nothing to do with showers.) This skirt, purchased recently, is proving itself to be a work horse in my closet. Stripes are a neutral and can be paired with anything, including these multicolored crazy print shoes. And the shape of the skirt is perfectly flattering. I also plan on wearing it with tights, next fall, because let's face it, i'm boycotting tights until at least October - that's a promise.

Triple shout out today to Gina at On the Daily Express for sharing with me my astrological color (mint) via the color chart (here), re-awakening me to some really great finds at the Express store (this mint shirt), and finally for inviting me to share some favorites on my Express wishlist. You can find that here.
