Vibrance

Sweater: J Crew (similar here) | Skirt: ASOS (also love this one) | Sandals: Steve Madden | Bracelets: Ily Couture, Hermes | Sunglasses: Celine | Lipstick: MAC Show Orchid.

On the days that I don't pick out my outfit the night before (something I've been doing since I was a little girl), I will start to plan what I'm going to wear during my morning shower. Typically, I will start with one main piece, whether it's a pair of shoes or a certain skirt and then build around that. In this case, I was flipping through a magazine that showed a bright blue skirt and remembered I already owned one (somewhere in the depths of my closet).  I went a little matchy matchy with my handbag and skirt and added a pop of color with these red guys, which I've kind of been wearing nonstop.
