Spring Must Haves: Skirts.

Happy Wednesday Ladies and Welcome. Amy Ann and I have covered it all this Spring: Floral Prints, Statement DressesTrench CoatsSandals+Wedges and last week was Shorts. For our Wrap Up to this 6-week series we chose Skirts. There is even a link-up at the end of this post. It will stay open until Midnight PST on June 16th 2014. Please join us. =)

Skirts were a no-brainer for us because just like Dresses, they are a Girly Must Have piece for Spring and Summer. I picked a Flirty little number as my Skirt. Amy chose the Loveliest Sky Blue+Gold Striped Mini paired with a Navy Tee. The Stilettos and Purse she accessorized with are Gorgeous. It is all very Springy and Nautical (which I love). This week (unlike many times) our Outfits are quite different. But we still both sort of Dressed Up our Casual Skirts.

I took it all back to the first week with this Outfit by choosing a Floral Skirt (since our first week was all about Floral). I am even wearing the same Button-down Blouse as I wore the first week with my Floral Pants and the same Black+Cognac Wedges (from the outfit with the Floral Pants, also). So basically my Outfit is showing 3 of our Spring Must Haves into one Look: Floral, Wedges and Skirts. The Cute Little Floral Skirt has little bouquets of Pink+Red Roses and the Cognac Elastic Belt with the Faux Leather Butterfly in the middle is actually attached to the waist of the Skirt, making that part of the Skirt go well with the Cognac of the Shoes. I added a New Statement Necklace and Earrings set in Pink+Red Stone Flowers that match the Skirt perfectly and a Bright Red Lip and I was good to go. This was worn last Saturday to see my cousin and her new Baby Girl (for the first time). We had Lunch and some Refreshments at the Patio of a Restaurant and the Baby slept most of the time. She was adorable and so tiny. Vivian looks like a giant next to her.
Cap-Sleeve, Button-Down, Poplin Shirt w/ Ruffles Around the Collar: Express (very similar, gorgeous option), (similar, best deal), (similar, on sale, love this).
Black Floral, Crinkly Chiffon, Girly Skirt w/ Cognac, Butterfly Belt: A Local Boutique (very similar, best deal), (very similar, on sale), (similar, black floral + lace, on sale).
Baby Pink Stone Flower Statement Necklace (w/ Red in the middle) and Matching Dangly Earrings: An Accessories Boutique in Tirana (New) (very similar gorgeous necklace, great deal), (similar necklace, best deal), (similar necklace, on sale), (very similar gorgeous earrings, great deal), (similar dangly earrings, best deal), (similar stud earrings).
Hot Pink, Patent Leather Strap Watch w/ Silver Rhinestone Face & 2 Pink Rhinestone, Floating Hearts inside: An Accessories Boutique in Albania (very similar), (similar Hello Kitty, best deal),(similar, Kate Spade option, love this), (MK gorgeous fuchsia option, love this).
Mint+Gold, Twisted, Silk Ribbon Bangle: Viggos.
Pink+Green, Plastic Hair Claw w/ tiny Flower: A Local Accessories Boutique (New)
Lips: Revlon's Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Red (identical), (similar by Revlon), (similar by Avon, best deal). I also own the Avon lipstick I linked to and recommend it.
Black+Cognac Wedges w/ Buckle Detail: A Shoe Boutique.

So how do you like this last Outfit of our Spring Must Have series? Do you own a Short, Full Floral Skirt or a Skater Floral Skirt? How have you worn it?

And of course, I had to chose some Favorite Looks from this last week featuring Shorts. And next week we will do a Recap of our Spring Must Haves on Wednesday complete with some Favorite Looks from today's link-up. =) Stay Tuned.

Dressing Up for Me.
Cheryl's White Shorts are the epitome of Summer Casual Cool especially paired with a Short-Sleeve Chambray Shirt. She looks so Fresh!

Erica paired her Blush+Black Striped Shorts with matching Blush Stilettos and an off-the-shoulder Graphic Gray Sweater playing both sides of Dressy and Casual.

Kileen's Light Blue Shorts are matched by a Vivid Skye Blue Collarless Blazer. Paired with Classic Nude Pumps and a Nude Leather Tote she is Tres Chic in this Suit-like attire.

Laura tried her Mint Shorts with a Light Yellow Top, Denim Jacket and White Rosette Statement Necklace keeping the Outfit in the Spring Pastel tones.

Darcy also wore White Shorts but she paired them with a Gorgeous Scalloped Royal Blue Tank, Tortoise Sunnies and some Ethnic Cognac+Blue Sandals.

Tori's Acid-Wash Denim Cut-offs, paired with the Bubblegum Pink Wellies and Mirrored Sunnies remind me of the 80's. She is the 2nd feature this week sporting a "Wifey" Graphic Top, also.


P.S. Linking up with Alison, Ann, Carrie, Lindsey, Madeline, Nicole, Sarah, Saumya and Shanna.

  2. Thanks for featuring my shorts outfit, Ada! You´re right, today, we really thought alike by posting floral skirts and I really like how you styled yours. So casual chic and that skirt would be perfect for fall too! :)

    By the way, your link up is not showing in your blog, I don´t know why, a HTML glitch somewhere? :)
