I've Been Waiting for This!!

are these shoes not AMAZING?!

Do you LOVE this skirt??! I wore this look to my brother, Jordan's baccalaureate ceremony tonight. He's graduating from Jesuit High School tomorrow morning! I have to tell you that I have been waiting patiently for the weather to get nice enough for me to wear this skirt!! I am seriously obsessed with it!! I LOVE IT!! Isn't it hot?? I have to say, I felt pretty dang good in this outfit. It makes my candy butt look extra sweet (go here for the context of this) and it's just one of those pieces that makes you feel confident. Do you have anything like that in your wardrobe?

The problem with the skirt is that I had a lot of trouble styling it. For some reason I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to pair it with. So I consulted with the fabulous, stylish, gorgeous Eboni, and she helped me pull this look together. We decided that a bright top would be good, and she said for me to go with chunky accessories, which I agreed with. Thanks, girl! She did suggest that I wear my Dany's with it, but for this occasion I wanted to keep it a bit more toned down. I'll wear the Dany's with it next time. And trust, there will be a next time for this skirt! 

The other thing I've been waiting for and wanting to show you all is this pair of shoes! They are to die for!! I got these about a year and a half ago, and one of the heels broke around the time I started my blog. For some reason it took me forever to get them fixed. I am so happy I finally did because I had almost forgotten how much I love these shoes. They are one of my favorite pairs! I mayyy even like them more than my Dany's, which says a lot

I know this is kind of a lame photo but I wanted to point out my blue shadow {if you can see it... it didn't show up as well as in person}. I put it both on my top and bottom eyelids. I wanted to do a fun shadow color, but I didn't want orange or red. Those colors would have been a little too "matchy-matchy." However, I thought blue would be a fun contrast and it was! What do you think? Do you like the look as a whole??

Thanks again, Eboni, for helping me get this look together! I hope you approve of the way it turned out! *wink, wink* Maybe one day I'll have Eboni's fabulous stylin' skillz! I'm workin' on it! 

I hope everyone's had a fabulous weekend so far! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends!
