i am wearing: f21 maxi skirt, h&m top, cole haan cheetah print shoes, nordstrom necklace, banana republic ring, h&m bracelets and michael kors watch.

i was extremely tempted to go out and buy a new maxi skirt for this edition of bloggers do it better, but i love this one so much that i just wore it again! it may be the most comfortable thing in my closet. i’m also wearing my new nail polish that came in my birchbox. it’s called shay and is by zoya. i normally don’t like pearly colors but this one is still very opaque so i am digging it. but is it just me or do light colors make me look even whiter? i don’t know how it’s possible but dark colors make my hands look tanner to me. looks like it’s time to bust out the self tanner again.

    I love your top! I’m wearing a similar color polish… I think those lighter colors do look better with a tan though. Weird. Either way, I love your outfit. (:

    I love the look! I’m paler than you….so I like to think of it as princess-like, since aristocracy never had tans!

    I love that you are wearing something flowy on top AND on bottom. Whenever I try to do this I feel frumpy, but your absolutely non-frumpy outfit just inspired me to try it again!

    Beautiful! Love the pop of leopard with this, too.
