Y'all may have seen a sneak peek at this ensemble on instagram last week.  As soon as I slipped on this skirt I was singing Outkast's "Roses."  I mean, who doesn't love that song?  Maybe Christian, after he heard me sing AndrĂ© 3000 all day.

I've paired this skirt with a few tops in the past and never quite found the one that was just right.  Once I slipped on my kids sweater (more on that here and here), it was the perfect pairing!  Who knew the accidental purchase of a kids-sized sweater could take me so far?  We're practically to a "One Kids Sweater on an Adult Woman: 3 Ways" post.

skirt - Forever21 (old), similar options below | top - Forever21 | heels - Jessica Simpson, LOVE these | trench coat - Target (no longer available), love this one and this one | bag - Tory Burch | cuff - La Dama | necklace - Etsy | watch - Michael Kors | pave bracelet - Derng (c/o)

  1. I don't love that song, ha. But it's mostly because people sang it to me ALL THE TIME in middle school. It was the bane of my existence.
