That Crazy Skirt

{Rebecca Beeson tank, vintage skirt via Shareen's, J. Crew necklace, Elie Tahari sandals, Forever 21 bangles, Michael Kors watch, Covergirl lipstick in Rapture}
I bought this skirt about a month ago at Shareen's, but was waiting for the perfectly festive moment to wear it. My dad hosted a big shindig for his girlfriend's birthday, and I figured it was just the right time to pull this bad boy out of my closet.

 I bought this skirt because it was unlike anything else in my closet. The neon color alone is new to me, but I also fell in love with the whimsical, psychadelic pattern. I debated buying it in the store for quite some time until I finally decided it was just one of those pieces I needed in my wardrobe- super special, and just a tad out of my comfort zone.

I absolutely love the way it fits- tight in the waist, with just a slight bell curve outwards. 

I wanted to keep the focus on the skirt, so I paired it with a basic blank tank and my favorite chunky gold necklace.

I had a friend from home visiting LA this weekend, and we had an absolute blast conquering the shopping mecca that is Los Angeles. We stopped by some of my favorites, and found some new hidden gems as well!
How was your weekend?
