my new favorite skirt

I bought this skirt in April, but ended up returning it because the fit just wasn't right. Neither the store nor the website had the size I needed in stock. Buuuut luckily my Mom is so awesome that when I told her about this skirt, she went out and bought one in her local store, and sent it to me in a care package along with some other goodies! I'm so excited about this skirt!

On Thursday I mentioned that I had two pieces in my closet that I have a hard time styling. This pink top is the other piece. I've only worn it once on the blog (with green shorts), but haven't been sure how to wear it in any other way. I thought my new skirt would make for a perfect pairing!

  1. I love the skirt! Your mom is awesome for finding it and getting it for you. And that top is pretty, but I can see how it's difficult to style with the flutter sleeves. It looks really great with the pencil skirt shape. Do you have any others that would look good with it?

  2. This skirt is beautiful! I'm so glad you were able to get it in your size. This shirt looks really good with the skirt, I bet it could work with other skirts too.

  5. I adore your new skirt. I think the best one you own. And, did you get a haircut?

    I'd love for you to check out my current post because it shows how I remixed several skirts. Speaking of skirts in my post today I mentioned a Skirts Week link-up you may want to join this week. This skirt is perfect for it.

    Enjoy the new week, Kate. =)))

  9. Your mom is so sweet! This skirt is perfect with the pink top. This shade of pink seems pretty neutral and I can see you pairing it with so many colors (blue, green, grey, brown, black) well pretty much anything.

  10. Moms are the best! Love the pink and blue mixed together, and that skirt print is pretty great! I have a similar one from Target, so I might just have to reference back to this look!

    Thanks for linking up for Skirt Week!

  17. (Sorry that I'm blog stalking you btw) That skirt is gorgeous! Getting mail from mom is way better than finding it in the store yourself anyways. :)

  18. Holy cow, the skirt and top look perfect together, Kate! I really like way the pencil skirt shape and the fluttery sleeve shape work together. Plus, that shade of blush/light pink is one of my favorites right now, so to me, this outfit is a total win. I bet the top would look great with anything a little more fitted on the bottom (skinny jeans, pencil skirts, etc.). And the color works with so many other colors (and all neutrals) as well!
