Summer to me means flouncy tops, breezy skirts, peep toe pumps, and girly colors.

I wore this outfit to a barbeque recently.  Overdressed? Perhaps....but as my motto says, "life is short...dress up!" :)

What I love most about this skirt is the fact that it has pockets. Fashion meets function!  I'm also wearing some of my very favorite accessories: my favorite bow pumps that I discovered in a small boutique during a shopping trip to Hong Kong with Mom, a sequined, striped purse from Bebe that I stalked last year until I finally discovered it in a pile of purses at an outlet (it was meant to be), my initial watch from Nordstrom, and my favorite bow ring.  

Please follow via Google and Bloglovin' if you like my blog, and thanks so much for reading! 


Love, S

  20. You look super cute in this outfit! I'm not sure I'd wear it to a bbq, not b/c it's too fancy, but b/c I would be scared of getting bbq sauce on any of the clothes lol.
