{Shirt and Skirt- J. Crew Factory, Necklace and Shoes- J. Crew, Trina Turk Purse, Forever 21 earrings, Michael Kors watch}
Wearing one of my favorite work outfits of the summer. (And I'm only slightly ashamed that 90% of it is J. Crew.) 

This outfit fulfills two major trends I've been dying to try out: vivid brights and buttoned-all-the-way collars. I picked up this skirt at J. Crew Factory (isn't that place the best?!), thrilled to finally find a fun pencil skirt. 

I love the way the skirt and shoes almost match, but are just a touch off. Marigold + Mustard.

So happy with my new shoes! I can already tell they are going to get a lot of mileage. I think I might just have to buy them in black as well. 

Tired of this shirt yet? It's probably the most worn piece of clothing in my closet this summer. The proof? Here, here, and here.

This is the first time I've ever worn a bright pink lipstick. I've always found them a little clownish with my fair skin. I took a risk and bought this shade in a drugstore without trying it on, and am thrilled with the results! I'm wearing Maybelline lipstick in Fairytale, and I highly recommend it for my fellow pale ladies. 

I've been so happy to be connecting with you guys on Twitter and Pinterest (AKA the best website known to man)! Have a fabulous weekend.


  1. Goodness! Your skirt is so beautiful! <3 Yellow is my absolute favourite colour!
