Vibrant Thang!


I must admit when I saw this skirt in the store, I thought it was ridiculously LOUD...

I was intrigued, but how would I even style it ... especially for work?

I passed this skirt up twice in-store but finally bought it on an online clearance sale for a buck more than 10!

For that price, I'd think of a way to wear it.

I'm glad I did too!

I just love the pleats in this skirt and how this piece moved so gracefully today...


I initially wanted to put this skirt with an ivory and white top...

Although I hadn't given up on that dream just yet, I opted for a gray tee to give some contrast to my pallet & tone the brightness down in the skirt.


To give it some sophistication, I topped the outfit off with my denim blazer...


And to add some variation, I toted around my snake-print bag...


I absolutely LOVE how this outfit came out...

The only thing I would change is wearing some leather biker-inspired booties instead of my suedette ones...

I might be one of those divas that wear boots all year 'round...


Boots, in my opinion, add an "in your face" edge to some of my outfits that I can't get with loafers, oxfords, or other flats that will grace my blog no doubt...

Off-Black Watch & Matching Hoops: New York & Company

Charcoal Gray Tee: American Eagle Outfitters ($10 tee and tank sale)

Off Black Bangle: It's Fashion

Snake Print Bag: Guess via Ross

Black Belt: Wal-Mart

Vibrant Neon Chiffon Pleated Skirt: Old Navy

Sudette Boots: Wet Seal

 I always surprise myself when my natural tastes are right on trend with what's in this season.

Word on the street is Neon is what's HOT for the warmer months...



  1. Oh you fancy, huh?! =D I love that color on you. The skirt is so feminine and you did a great job of toning it down with the boots. I would have never thought to add the blazer. You look really cute! And you're right! Neon is supposed to be all the rage this spring.


  2. shame on you for second guessing this gorgous skirt! you look great! i love the color! 10 bucks?! what a steal!

    1. I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE this skirt!

  3. Thank you all for your wonderful comments!
