top diane von furstenburg, skirt h&m, shoes calvin klien, necklace etsy, belt vintage

Even though it’s Friday and hot outside, I dressed up today. Hmmm…maybe I was inspired by last night’s Project Runway (at least the above photo was!). I love, love the rich turquoise color of this top, but always pass it over. I don’t like it with jeans, and I think black pants are sooo boring. Solution? Flirty black skirt! This one was the perfect choice because it mirrors the slight flare of the top and keeps the outfit playful.

Since my friends and family all seemed to be in agreement, I decided to stick with the highlights for another round. So glad I did! This color has really grown on me and I’m hoping it will lighten up a little more.
