Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, I spent a fair amount of it preparing for my trip to Europe. Details to come Wednesday. I’ve got a couple surprises up my sleeve, too!

I’ve been waiting for the weather to warm up so I could wear this skirt. This lightweight number isn’t just any ordinary skirt, it was made for me by a very special person, fellow blogger Yvonne of Fashion Recon. This was her way of thanking me for helping her out with her banner. She took my measurements and made this for me. That’s the kind of good karma I like, it was certainly a gift worth waiting for. This woman has a heart of gold and a knock-out style to boot!

I love the detail of the ruffle at the bottom, the colors worked so well with this top I picked up last summer. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to wear out, I really wanted to create an outfit that spoke of spring days and warm breezes.

I’m not very tall. Well, that’s an understatement. At 5’4″, I’m not incredibly short either, however, I have to pay attention to proportions. When wearing a dress or skirt that ends near my knees, I balance out the proportions with a platform or slight heel. I love wearing flats but they work better on mini skirts and dresses for me. Often, it’s not that we can’t wear at item, we just need to reconsider how we’re choosing to wear it in order to maintain balance and proportion.
