Spring Queen


When my husband saw me today he said, "you look like the queen of spring in that outfit."  Compliment or poking fun?  Who knows when it comes to men.  LOL.  But...I love my look!  The extremely loud, bright colors and cropped floral print top totally scream spring.  And I'm wearing my favorite color: yellow!

I've had this top for a while--holding onto it for spring and summer--and today was gorgeous, so I thought I'd break it out.  I was having a hard time trying to figure out what to wear on the bottom, until I remembered I had my vintage green midi skirt.  Bam!  Outfit complete.

The shape of this top, with the ballerina neckline and low scoop back, remind me of the American Apparel tops and body suits that I love.  Unfortunately there is no AA close to me, so I'll have to settle for a Forever 21 version.  Although, with how cute it is, I wouldn't say I'm settling!

Have a great day everyone! <3





Top and Clutch: Forever 21 // Skirt: Vintage (Etsy) // Heels: Seychelles (Crossroads)

I love the back of that top and it totally looks like AA, only for 85% less of the cost. I love AA, but goddamn their prices. The skirt is beautiful as well and I love the two paired together. Your shoes are perfect. I couldn't have imagined a better pair of shoes for such a bright spring outfit.

Hey Toni♥

I really like that skirt! You got it on Etsy?! Wow! I never actually bought from there! All the cute things I see are really expensive :( I like the floral top too! I love how you paired the "busy" top with a solid skirt and neutral accessories (clutch + shoes). It pulls it all together and makes it super balanced! Love it :)

And yes, Queen of Spring indeed! hahaha men, lol :)
