X marks the spot

This outfit was inspired by Meg, so it's only fitting that she happened to be my photographer. I love how she paired her tulip skirt with a cozy cardigan, so when this fluffy cardi arrived from Dorothy Perkins, I knew just how I wanted to style it.

Dorothy Perkins is a UK based high-street store which only recently launched a US version of their site. They have an impressive inventory, and a great sale section; which I'm not embarrassed to say I looked at first, and will certainly be looking at again.

I really like the tribal motif on this one, and it did keep me nice and warm on the windy beach.

  15. I have purchased about 5 fit and flare dresses from Dorothy Perkins. They were about $30 each and are very flattering and versatile. I love that site.

  36. I totally love this winter mint and location! I was kind of baffled by how much seafoam and mint I continue to see through the retail winter months and have been wondering how everyone is wearing it.

    I'm still a little baffled by the pastel blue handbags though. Not gonna lie.
