Outfit Post: My First One!

As I write this I am so extremely nervous about posting it! But I figure since I give so much advice about styling and ideas for outfits that I should really own up to my own words and show you readers what I wear... So here's my first real outfit post for BAD!

I have been dreaming of this Jil Sander look ever since I saw it go down the runway last fall. I loved the hot pink skirt [and lips]. Pairing it with a white tee was genius. I was determined to recreate this look but put my own little spin on it. And so here it is:

Skirt: Zara, White Tee: Target, Belt: Express Bag: Deux Lux, Jewelry - Watch: ASOS, Bangles: Express, Forever21, H&M, SillyBandz, Necklaces: My Own, Forever21, Lips: CoverGirl Spellbound

I know that the lighting isn't the greatest. We've been having terrible June Gloom [more than usual] weather lately and I'm using my small digital camera. I looooovvve this skirt. It was a one size fits all so until I can get it hemmed and taken in I need to wear a belt to keep it up :) I'm participating in the Bloggers Do It Better series and this week's challenge is "Neons & Neutrals" I tried to keep the rest of the look in the neutral area so that the skirt could stand out. But I had to add a little sparkle with my Express elastic belt :) I'm also wearing my favorite Sole Society wedges - The Libby

A "Stacked Arm" - My favorite new way to wear accessories

What do you guys think of my look? As nervous as I am to start outfit posts, I am excited to be challenged by the BDIB series and hopefully I will get used to snapping and posting pictures. Stay tuned for more looks and I hope that you feel inspired to switch up your wardrobe! xoxo!
