Skirt: Thrift Top: Thrift Shoes: Chinese Laundry

I have a super busy day ahead of me so this is going to be short and sweet. My boyfriend and I took a scenic drive up to the Ortegas this morning and it was absolutely breathtaking. One of the greatest things about living in southern California is the amount of different terrains at our fingertips.

this leopard print skirt is perfect. Usually I shy away from longer skirts, but this zany print makes it totally ok! Also love the print mixing you have going on here. So much to love in this outfit.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

Amazing. You take two items I would have scoffed at if I saw them first on a hanger, a boxy shirt with those squared sleeves and a maxi skirt. And what do you do with 'em? Put them on and look absolutely breathtakingly chic. Bravo!

Amanda said...

Geeze, this scene is awesome! And you look so amazing tall in these photos! I love it!

Oh and you are the opposite of me...I absolutely cannot carry cash with me. I spend it terribly, whereas with a debit card I feel a bit more controlled (which is kinda weird if you think about it).

Mel said...

kelly ann said...
