outfit snapshots

There are days when mirror outfit snapshots is the best I can do and with that said…here are not one but three outfits for ya. 

 And before you say anything, yes I’m aware that my curtain is too short (and now that I pointed that out for those who might have not even noticed it, you’re welcome. I guess I didn’t measure so well..). 

This skirt is a bit long. FYI, I’m 5’6″ and it comes almost to the floor. I’m wearing it with flats though…wedges would be perfect with it. 

 Tee: Old Navy – on sale! love these, great basic tee

Skirt: Nordstrom 

Jacket: old (similar)

Bag: London Fog

Necklace: F21

Blouse: Ann Taylor old (similar here and here)

Jeans: AE (similar here and here)

Booties: Nordstrom (also here) (love these in navy)

Bag: Rebecca Minkoff  (turquoise color on sale – so pretty)

Watch: Michael Kors

I’ve been loving “leather” skirts for a couple of years now but never could bring myself to buy one for a number of different reasons…1) would I be brave enough to wear it and 2) all the ones I liked were too much $$, specially since I wasn’t too sure about #1. But then I saw this one at F21…it’s not shiny, I like the style and for under $18…SOLD.  To dress it down a bit, a graphic tee, denim jacket and booties would be perfect with this skirt too. 

Top: Forever 21 (also pretty)

Skirt: Forever 21 (longer version – on sale!)

Shoes: Nordstrom  (same style, smaller heel option – on sale!) (these would look great with this look)

Necklace: c/o t+j Designs (love this one)

Thanks for reading!

    I am in love with the last outfit. You look great and shouldn't be scared to wear it.

    I'm intrigued by the camera! It takes great pictures, much better than my phone. Your lighting is perfect too! Your outfits all look fabulous!I hadn't noticed your curtains, but if it bothers you, you could always sew "tabs" on the top and use them on the rod instead of the pocket on the top of the panel. I'm sure you could find fabric that would make them look custom! Or, you could sew trim to the bottom, maybe they gave cute gold options!!;)

    I love all three looks! That maxi skirt is so pretty and I cannot believe the leather skirt is from F21! I tried on a leather skirt there, but it was wayyyyyyy too short. This one is a good length! I will check it out for sure! Mariannewww.goodgirlgoneglam.com

    I have to say Lilly, I miss these posts! Of course I love the professional outfits you take photos of as well, but if I had the lighting and pretty background that you do, I would do the mirror shots a lot more often! The lighting is so terrible in my condo, that I can't ;( You can really see the details here. Great looks!
