Current Craving + a Winner!

Hey lovelies!

Oh I could just go on and on about my current craving...



Not only are maxi skirts simply gorgeous (and donning one makes you immediately feel like royalty), but they're insanely comfortable! Pair neutral skirts with bold colors up top... and the opposite goes for the bright colors. A shocking cobalt blue deserves to be the centerpiece of the outfit, with only a few pops of color in the accessories.

For a trendier take on the classic maxi skirt, look for two things: texture and hemline. A sheer overlay makes a long skirt delicate and sexy at the same time, while an asymmetrical hem shows of tan legs. I love the teal skirt because it incorporates both. {And let's be real, $80 for that beauty can hardly be considered a splurge. It's stunning!}

But, alas... my favorite, favorite, favorite look would have to be {this neon pink beauty}, paired with a simple denim jacket and sunnies...


In love.

On to other topics... such as announcing the winner of the Zobha workout gear giveaway! I did the "random number generator," and the first number that came up was...

Eleven!

  1. I wish I could pull off a maxi skirt, but I think I'm just too short that it would drown me! But nonetheless, I think I could make it work! :)
