Pastels, Prints, and a Pencil Skirt...

Happy Hump Day my loves.

I hope each of you are having a great day thus far. I'm so glad that we're halfway through the work week. I've been bombarded with meetings and paperwork so I'm ready for a nice, long weekend.

I haven't posted since some time last week but I promise I'm going to do better. I did however, get the chance to attend a local fashion show this past weekend so I will be posting pics of that on my Instagram feed soon.

Today's outfit is one that I styled for Easter Sunday. I find it to be amazing when you can so pefectly pair up pieces in your closet that were initially purchased as seperates
 
 
I loved the print of this cardi when I initially saw it in Target.
 
 
And though I love, love, loved it I absolutely had to wait until it was clearanced.
Needless to say that I was able to snag it for 7 bucks. I get so excited about red stickers and markdowns. It totally tickles my fancy. I mean I liiivvveee for a good sale.
 
Or.....a great thrift find...like this classic Jones of New York pussybow blouse I found for 99 cents.
 
 
I wasn't too fond of the shirt by itself because it fit a little large on me but the great thing about layering is that you can kinda mask a particular garment's actual appearance if you don't like it's inital fit.
 
 
This magenta colored high waisted pencil skirt is absolutely one of my faves. I love the fact that it came with a skinny belt and the color is awesome. I purchased it a few years ago from one of my all time favorite stores, New York & Company-all of their pieces are so classic and can easily be worn as work or casual pieces.
 
This skirt really accentuates the little bit of curves that I do have...
 
 
Too bad that it fit a little to tight for my liking. Hence the reason I recently posted it for sale in my shop, Miss Rockwells Racks. So ladies if any of you want it, it's up for grabs!
 
Overall, I rather enjoyed this 'fit. I got tons of compliments on the pretty colors too. Not to mention, the honey snapped these photos of me and he didn't do such a bad job. I may have to hire him full time!!!!
 


 
 
What's your favorite color combination?
 
I can't wait to hear from you!
 
Thank You so much for reading!
