Cream rose printed crop top - F21, Nude cami (underneath) - F21, Grey pleated skirt - Banana Republic, Pumps - Nordstrom Rack - Necklace - F21, Bag - Chanel classic flap, Earrings (unseen) - Sonya Renee


If I were to put together an "ideal" outfit, meaning a look that epitomizes everything that I love about fashion, this look would be it. Fall slowly forces me to kick off my beach girl sandals and breezy tanks in favor of feminine pleats and sophisticated pumps. I carefully prop my bag onto my shoulder, and I am instantly transported to a different feeling, one in which I stand up taller and walk with more purpose. I feel like a new person in these pretty clothes. Isn't that what fashion should do?

  4. Lilly: Thanks girl!

    Gigi: Thank you, Forever 21 offers some beautiful surprises sometimes! I mainly shop there for accessories, but once in awhile I find some great clothing items too.

    Alison elle: Thank you. No one can tell it's actually a crop top when I tuck it into a skirt. I'm not a huge fan of crop tops, but tucking this pretty floral printed number is a perfect solution!

  11. Thank you girls! The pleated skirt was of course found in the petite section of Banana Republic, but it also comes in regular sizing too. I love it because it's such a soft fabric! I'll have to check the material, but it feels like nice cotton. In the past, I've had problems with pleated skirts being too flimsy. The top is great too. Forever 21 has some really beautiful cream and lace tops right now so go take a peek if you're interested!
