The Great Outdoors

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fun weekend!  As I had hoped, I spent a lot of time relaxing this weekend- I caught up on some reading, watched a movie with my husband and went on a long bike ride yesterday afternoon (those of you who follow me on Instagram probably saw my photo).  I didn't get to as many DIY projects as I had hoped to, but I always seem to find time here and there to work on things! :)


Yesterday my husband and I spent some time walking around Pasadena, and I chose to wear this summery skirt with a tree print from Sarah Ball's collection for Anthropologie.  I've had this skirt for a few months now and have been trying to figure out how to pair it.  When I found this bright neon striped top the other day, I knew it was a perfect match.  I chose to wear nude heels & an oversize bag with this look.  What do you guys think of my pairing?





Skirt: Sarah Ball for Anthropologie (Sold out, LOVE this Palm Tree print skirt!!!)
Tee: (Gap, Sold out online; Similar here)
Belt: Hermes
Jewelry: Earrings- Vintage (Similar); Bracelets- Orange Spike: Forever 21 (Sold out, love this color), 
Chain bracelet- Sequin Jewelry (Similar here & here)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Rolando
Bag: Louis Vuitton Delightful PM

Thank you so much for reading!!

  8. Allison, first of all, the skirt is amazingly pretty, both in its patterns and color.
    Teaming a pale green skirt with a bright orange striped top is an unique idea. The entire look is bright and cheerful. Great for a day out in summer. Nude pumps are lovely too. they go almost with any outfit.
    have a nice day !

  9. Quite a bold combination! Even if i love the shoes i think they don't match with the top of the outfit..or the orange top doesn't match the shoes... who knows! Anyway the print of the skirt its just great.

  18. This skirt is to die for! I absolutely love the way you paired it with the neon striped top, it adds just the perfect unexpected (and completely fantastic) pop of color! And you can never go wrong with a nude pump :)
