Shoes: Bitten by SJP (super old) (similar) (here smaller heel) (and another option

Bag: Thrifted (similar) (other options here and here)

    Gorgeous combination of colors! I'm waiting for a similar skirt from J. Crew today in the mail, and hope to put together a similar outfit. And I think I just need to break down and buy that necklace. *Sigh* Looking lovely!

    Hi Lilly, I was wondering if I could add some constructive criticism. I LOVE your site and use it all the time. I really appreciate when you add in comments and tell us where there are alternative places to get similar items. However, could you add a link for the original piece, like your Zara skirt or just let us know when it was purchased so that we don't have to search for it. I notice above that you commented above in response to Simply Sarah so maybe this would help. Thanks!!! Keep on rocking with this site, it's AMAZING.

    Hi Liz – Thank you 🙂 I can starting adding when I got certain items. I usually provide links to the same items if they are still available. The skirt is from H&M and unfortunately they don't have an online store, yet (they need to hurry up with that), so I try to find pieces similar to what I'm wearing 🙂

    You look great in pleats! Aren't they so girly and fun? I always want to twirl around when I wear my pleated skirts.

    Love this outfit! Especially the pink with the tourquoise. I bought this necklace on ebay! Not sure if it's the same exact one, but it looks just like it. I love it! 🙂
