i’m wearing: mint pleated skirt is from lulus (back ordered but you can still pre-order here), coral dress c/o panache clothing, me too bow flats, jcrew patent leather belt, nordstrom necklace, spike the punch & various bracelets and my michael kors watch.

it’s been a long time since i’ve linked up for bloggers do it better. and i almost didn’t participate again because the challenge this time around was mint & coral. i only have a few coral pieces and i feel like i just wore them. this top is actually a dress (last seen here) and i wore this skirt with a coral tank (seen here) last time. so what do you think of this color combo? would you or have you worn it? be sure and stop by pretty shiny sparkly to see how everyone else wore mint & coral!

    Adorable! I never would have guessed that your top was a dress and I love the pleats in your mint skirt. So glad I discovered you on the BDIB challenge!

    Love the color combination and especially love using dresses as skirts—it makes them even more valuable! I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your style. I’ve sent your link to several of my friends who really enjoy it! I hope you will take this as positive but we wish the print color on your blog was darker or a different color so it was easier to read! Maybe it’s just our 50 year old eyes! Nonetheless, you are a breath of freshness!

      hi jennifer! thanks for the sweet comments. you are not the only person to complain about the pink being to light. i am considering a mini blog makeover and this is on the list of things to do. i’ve also noticed that it is particularly light on internet explorer. might that be the browser you are using? thanks again for your input!

    I am glad you sat in on the challenge! Too bad..I misssed it because I take my photos in advance. See..there’s the downside of working ahead of schedule. Now…if I can just acquire some psychic powers.

    Very cute…and creative! (Using the dress a different way!) I do love this color combo…I normally wouldn’t have worn it together, but I really like the results!

    I keep seeing this trend of reusing dresses as shirts or skirts, looking good! There’s something about pleated skirts, they’re so feminine! Love the bow shoes, perfect touch!

    I LOVE these colors! You’re like a candy-coated model.

    Something about both of these shades of jewel tones is so relaxing and beachy – it is the PERFECT summer outfit. You’re making me super jealous with the pleated skirt – I need to find one just like it. The silhouette is so flattering, and I love how playful and flowy it is.

    That gold necklace is the perfect accent – and I love the little flap on the front of those shoes. Down to the details this outfit is pristine.
