Well it pretty much doesn't get any more fun than this outfit! At least not in my closet! I contemplated purchasing this skirt for two months, and with my long history of embroidered skirts standing the test of time (and getting worn on repeat) I decided to take the plunge. Same with the H&M top - white ruffles are my thing, and the structured fabric with a hint of stretch is just as amazing in person as I'd hoped it would be. Thick fabrics like this top and skirt have always been my top choice; I like an outfit with a little structure and I think they last longer and hold up better to wear and tear. I couldn't, however, decide between two pairs of shoes with this look so we photographed both - which pair do you like best?

Top: H&M, $35
Skirt: Macy's, $60
Red shoes: Charlotte Russe, $11 (similarsimilarsimilar)
Black shoes: Nine West c/o Amazon, $65
Purse: Stella & Dot (similarsimilar)
Earrings: Deux Mains, $20 (fair trade)
Approx. dates: Purse is 3 years ago. Red shoes are 2 years ago. Black shoes are 1 year ago. Top and skirt are new.
