I've been obsessed with this hot pink skirt of late. I loved the one Gap was selling, but theirs only went up to a size 14 (sad face). Thankfully, I found this amazing one from Old Navy (up to size 20), and of course, since it's Old Navy, it was wayyy inexpensive, at less than $25! Love. Paired the skirt with a super stark black and white sweater--I love how the vibrant all the colors look together. :D Also wearing the bracelet my sis bought for me for Christmas. !

I've also recently become a nail polish-aholic. I've added maybe 11 polishes within the last month! Scary, but I love them all! Most of my new colors are from Julep, one of those nifty little box-a-month dealios. I can tell my membership is going to be dangerous. lol! Also, if you guys know of good nail polish blogs (with swatches, reviews, etc), definitely let me know! I have some catching up to do. ;)

Anyway, let me know what you think of the skirt! It's a step out of my comfort zone but I love it! :D

Thanks for reading! :)

P.S. Just updated my blogshop with a bunch of new items! Shooting to add 5 items to it each night. I had a MASSIVE closet clean out and have over 100 items to post! Wish me luck! :P

P.P.S. Blogger finally updated their commenting system to have threaded comments, so I can finally respond to you guys! Woohoo! If you have any questions, feel free to ask there and I'll get back to you. :D

Thailand and Cambodia were hot, sweaty, dirty, insane, and awesome. I saw some of the most amazing sights everrr, including a cross-dressing show. If Thailand and Cambodia aren't on your list of places to go, add them. So worth it.

I love the vixen-y vibe of this Rachel Pally top. The cutout sleeves and high neckline paired with a keyhole opening are decidedly more provocative than I usually wear, but I kind of love it! Staying true to my girly aesthetic, my faaaavorite feature is the bow at the nape of the neck. So cute! I'm so tempted to wear it backwards with it tied more loosely for a "secretary blouse" effect. hehe. :P

The skirt is from leathercult, which @_franceta raved about on twitter! (Side note: THANK YOU, for finding custom leather skirts that don't break the bank!) I could do with much less poufiness in the skirt, but overall, I love it. :)

Also, I will wear these shoes until they (or my feet) fall apart. Love them.

Yours, Etc.

P.S. Check out how Franceta rocked the same skirt here! Fab, no?! :D

P.P.S. The bf totally said I look like a vampire in this outfit. I'll take that as a compliment, thankyouverymuch.

Rachel Pally designs the kind of amazing, effortlessly chic styles I constantly daydream about wearing. Everything from her collection flows beautifully, and always feels amazing on, so when her team reached out me to me test drive a couple pieces, I was beyond excited!

The Meme dress I'm wearing is absolutely stunning in person--the cool icy color and gorgeous cut are perfect for all four seasons (in Cali at least), and the modal jersey makes this dress feel both incredibly luxurious and more comfortable than pajamas! I could lounge in this all day. I love how easily it transitions from casual with sandals and beachy accessories, to dressy with some statement jewelry and attention-grabbing shoes. Oh the possibilities!

What do you think? Do you guys own any Rachel Pally pieces?
I can assure you that this will not be my last! ;)

Yours, Etc.
