This skirt makes me feel like some kind of mermaid princess. While it’s far from my go-to when it comes to clothing, I have never outgrown my childhood love for all things hot pink. For this reason, when I find a piece that’s this loud, but still sort of…soft, in a way, I’m all for it. Borderline Barbie, but without being obnoxious. At least I like to think so…

Paired up and toned down with some navy pieces, which will likely replace a lot of the black in my wardrobe this season. Especially now that high temps are actually something to consider (YAY)! San Fran, I love you, but I will never miss those B.S. summers.

Hope you guys had a nice weekend! x

    Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in web explorer, could check this¡K IE still is the marketplace leader and a big component of people will leave out your excellent writing due to this problem.

    Lovely skirt! Love the pink on you.

    I know what you mean about the color though. Just donned a similarly bright midi skirt in our most recent post that wouldn’t be my go-to, but was fun for a day of dress up!

    Beauteous skirt! I love that you paired fuchsia with Navy, that’s definitely something I would do, check out my SS2009 archive here:

    Love the combination of pink & navy.
    I’m lusting after your Pashli! I have half a mind to spend a good chunk of my tax return on one.

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks! And not to be a bad influence, but I highly recommend the Pashli. :) Really is the best “splurge” bag I have ever purchased – fits everything you need!
