Live Colorfully

Top: TJ Maxx (old - SO old it could possibly date back to high school)
Skirt: Target || Love this
Shoes: Nine West || Love these
Sunnies: Ray-ban
Bracelets: Forever 21
Earrings: Forever 21  || Nearly identical here

I love how bright this outfit is - easily one of my favorite outfits of the summer so far. This skirt is super versatile in that you can choose how loud you want the outfit to be. Pairing it with a cobalt drape top really pulls the blue details out of the skirt and makes the whole thing pop.

I wore this skirt on my trip to Chicago in June paired with a black halter top - the black tones the whole outfit down so the skirt stands out but isn't screaming in your face. It's all about where you're going and how offensively bright you'd like to be. In my case, I should always be offensively bright to offset my bitchy looking natural resting face… in some of these blog photos I am straight up scowling. One of Jill's classic sayings is "um…maybe try and look so happy in these ones"!!!

The only thing I'm scowling about is not purchasing the matching crop top that accompanied this skirt - kicking myself now, but glad I have the skirt instead of the top - so many more options!

What else? Any purchases you're kicking yourself for not getting now? Any bitchy resting face confessions? Talk to  me - I'd love to hear it!


  1. This skirt is amazing! I can't believe it's from Target, you look lovely! I love the top you chose with it.


  2. Thanks Vanessa! Target seriously never fails to impress. Of course I bought in when I was only supposed to be running in quickly for toothpaste and shampoo….you literally can't leave there without buying at least one impulse item. Worked out this time though!

    I may have to use your expertise in the future to help with this blog!!! XO

  3. I love this skirt so much. I featured it on my blog a few weeks back and I paired it with a crisp white shirt. I love how you paired it too. Have an. Awesome weekend!

  4. Thank you! One of the things I love about it is how great it looks with so many different top options. Such a great find!

    Enjoy the weekend! XO

  5. This skirt is so pretty and this outfit looks great on you! Target always has the best pieces!

    God bless,

  8. This skirt is everything! The matching top would look cute too but I love how you paired it with the blue blouse.
