Chevron and silk

Sometimes it's good to take an item I wear all the time (the chevron skirt) and pair it with an item I hardly ever wear (the silk blouse) and get a very cute new outfit.

I wore this to a bridal shower over the weekend... I seriously want to start going to brunch every weekend.

  1. Brunch is pretty much my favorite thing. I try to have it at least every other weekend. I really like this skirt/ shirt combo. The colors look great togehter, and it highlights how tiny your waist is!

  5. I wish I lived near a beach, or a lake, or pond, heck even a little kiddie pool would do it hehehehe. You look very pretty, silk is a great fabric to wear during the summer.

  6. Bunch every weekend wouldn't be a bad thing. Not at all! Especially if it makes you wear things you don't get to wear very much, like this lovely top of yours that looks ever so fabulous. The neckline is so fun!

  8. Brunch is pretty much the greatest thing ever invented as far as I'm concerned. And why don't you wear this top more? It's such a great dusty rose color.

  23. I have this skirt, and have had no idea how to dress it up. Turns out all you need is silk and great accessories! Love the top. Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. You look so pretty I love the ruffles on your blouse. I really wish I had a different job so I could wear stylish outfits everyday.

  25. Brunch is great, but sadly expensive in New York so I don't go too often. You have to look for the Brunchables skit on YouTube :)

    The silk blouse is another item you have to wear more!
