statement skirt + statement neckalce + giveaway






 blazer: Banana Republic top: Modbe, skirt: me, sandals: Old Navy, necklace: c/o Wild About Jewelry, watch: Michael Kors, bracelets: c/o A Beautiful Heart {here and here}

I bought some white knit a while back planning on making something....I just couldn't remember what.  But when I searched through H&M looking for a thick striped navy and white skirt with no luck, I knew just what to use it for.  I cut out a white pencil skirt and a navy one (just like this one).  I knew I wanted 5 thick stripes for the skirt, so I divided the length of the skirt (minus seam allowance) and cut up the two skirts into thick strips about 5 1/2" wide.  Then I serged each stripe together to create this skirt.  The nice thing is that I was left with the pieces to make a second skit just like this, with the stripes just opposite.

Today I'm happy to be giving away this gorgeous coral statement necklace from Wild about Jewelry!
Coral is one of my favorite colors to wear.  On our trip down to California this summer I packed 5 coral shirts....and wore all of them regularly.  I think of coral as a grown up pink.  This statement necklace adds the right amount of "grown up pink" to a look.

  80. statement jewellery Over the past couple weeks we’ve seen something
    quite different play out on the. We’ve seen something new and refreshing
    emerging – a community of women who encourage and inspire rather than create
    competition. Yesterday, throughout the hashtag feed we saw women from all over
    the world uploading beautiful photographs of middle parts and statement pieces.
    Many of the women stated that they were going outside of their preverbal comfort
    zone and trying something new with the middle part. Instead of the “Who Wore It
    Best” mentality, we saw something counter-cultural happening. We’ve got one word
    for that: Inspiring! We are constantly inspired by how girls are taking risks and
    confidently trying.
    (Thanks)
