When I first saw this skirt in December at Bloomingdale’s, I admired it but was not in the mood to shop for any more formal attire. In other words, as difficult as this may be to believe, I was burned out! Fast forward to February, when I was visiting one of my favorite fashion blogs, Atlantic Pacific—thirty-something blogger, Blair Eadie, was sporting that same skirt with a hot pink J. Crew cashmere pullover and orange-red jacket. On her, it looked fabulous… on me, I suspected not.
This past April I found the skirt on sale (seriously reduced from $650 to $230) and decided to give it a try. I paired it with its matching silk sleeveless cropped top (also on “Friends and Family” sale), and the outfit came to life. This is a perfect outfit to wear to a summer or early fall wedding.

This outfit makes me want to jump for joy- the bold black and white stripes, and the bell shaped skirt! However, it’s the pairing of the skirt and the shoes that is sheer genius!
Love you, everything you do, and everything you stand for!!!!!
