OUTFIT: Sometimes you just feel like dressing up

Have you ever just woken up one morning and decided that you wanted to look nice that day??  That happens to me sometimes.  I think after more than I would like to admit a day or two of nothing but bummy, just around the house clothes, I got tired of looking blah.

I was just going to throw on the usual maxi dress but my daughter picked out this skirt for me....and she's only 17 months old. haha!  She picked out both her clothes and part of mine that day. haha!  I can't remember how long it's been since I wore a mini skirt... and you can tell from my pale legs that it's been a while.

Needless to say my hubby was pleasantly surprised when he came home from work.

The whole outfit ended up coming from one place, Wet Seal.  

All of the pieces of this outfit are pretty old but you can find similar items here: 
Skirt- here, here, and here  |  Top- here or here  |  Necklace- here or here  |  Belt- here |  Heels- here or here

The top is actually really flowy but I wanted to give it a peplum look by adding the skinny belt at my waist.

  4. I love the way you're wearing a skinny belt over your mint vest. Works well with the skirt and necklace. ( In fact your necklace goes perfectly with the skirt!)

    1. She's a future fashionista in the making, i think. LOL! The belt was just a little big on me so I tied it to fit and actually really liked the way it ended up looking.
