Shaded Streets

I bought this Marni skirt a while back, but kind of forgot about it until today. I wore it to lunch with my dad, it's his birthday!! Happy Birthday Dad!
I am in love with the pleats on the back of the skirt, can't wait to wear it more often in the summer! Here I paired it with a men's J.Crew chambray shirt that I've been living in all week, Miu Miu platform pumps, vintage jewelry, and an alligator clutch from Cuba that's falling apart...literally. 
Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday so far! xxx

I like how you paired this skirt with the denim shirt, on paper it doesn't sound like they would go together but they really do

love your shoes they are to die for and I can totally see why you're in love with this new skirt it's wonderful! Hey I know you get tons of comments each day and are busy working but I am traveling to LA in April and I've always admired you're choice for Vintage stuff and you seem to know some pretty cool fleamarkets and vintage stores so if you have like 5 min to maybe give me some good tips in a short comment on my blog that would be really awesome and really nice. I'm from Germany and I dont often get the chance to go to LA so I am happy for every little hint :)

Thank you so much!

Just for my sake/personal enjoyment- and I know I'm a totaly stranger- but could you wear this with a bright colored crop, loose crop top in the summer? I just saw the long skirt/tiny top outfit in Shopbop's lookbook last night, and it would look so great with this marni piece.

I love that skirt being paired with the denim shirt. The leather clutch certainly balances all the colors and pulls it all together(my opinion). I really love that denim shirt. I think denim may be making a comeback this spring season.

Love the movement. Very tricky to combine the green and the blue jeans, but you have done a fabulous job. You can wear the blouse with almost everything, but what a great idea to wear it with such an elegant classic skirt. The white makes me wonder were spring is. I love the clutch and the combination with the shoes. The clutch really looks vintage. The cuff is a real eye catcher, so it doesn't need much more

Jill- I've never really considered my style "punk", but I suppose it was a little more mainstream and edgier.... I guess I felt everyone was wearing the same edgy/casual look and I wanted to keep evolving and try to wear things out of my comfort zone!
