Good Morning!

I think it’s clear by now that I love wearing both neutral colors and skirts. Combine the two and it’s like fireworks on the Fourth of July!  I’m a sucker for tailored pieces and this skirt couldn’t be more perfect.  I love the large pleats and sheer paneling and immediately knew I wanted to pair it with a simple blouse and pearls.  The high-waistline and bell-shaped flair make my waist do this disappearing act.  Who’s complaining?!  I also love that it works with a crop top too, changing the look of the skirt completely.

Another favorite of mine? Structured tops.  I scored this structured top from Ann Taylor for an amazing price earlier this year.  I am drawn to its unique neckline and the asymmetrical detail on the shoulders.  This box shaped blouse is simple and pairs great with just about anything.  Basically, I will be wearing it again real soon.  Ah, and it’s neutral… imagine that :).

In other exciting new, I have recently team up with Charlotte photographer, Arina Claire.  This girl has a keen eye for fashion photography and is great to work with!  Check her out at, www.ArianaClare.com.  Thanks Ari, I love how the photo’s turned out!
