Que Bella – Maxi Skirt

I found this lovely cobalt blue skirt in my Anthropologie a few weeks ago in the sale room. It’s the Water’s Edge Skirt by Velvet and almost a straight column skirt and is lined.

Shirt: J Crew Silk Henley Top in Melon Spice 
Skirt: Water’s Edge Skirt
Belt: J Crew
Shoes: Miss Trish for Target

Now, here’s how I picked this shirt to wear with this skirt. I knew I wanted to wear the skirt Thursday to my monthly neighborhood Ladies Luncheon but I didn’t have any idea in my head about the shirt. I grabbed the skirt and walked the length of my closet, holding it up to my shirts. They are all organized by color. When I got to the orange section I was intrigued. My peach/melon section was right after that. And that is how I came up with the outfit. I even grabbed a yellow cardigan but it was too hot to wear. I’ll wait until cooler temps to try that color combination.

Husband and I had date night Thursday night so I grabbed my favorite dress, the Stripe Blouson Dress. The Boy was off to his first high school football game. He never went last year.

Dress: J Crew Stripe Blouson Dress
Belt: J Crew (similar)
Necklace: gift from Husband
Have a Great Day!

    Oooh, I love Velvet. I have a number of their knit dresses and they are divine. This skirt is so beautiful on you. Love the color, the length, the shape, and of course your big smile. :^)

    LOVE the Blouson dress! I've been on the fence about this dress because the photo's of it on J.Crew's website show it with a dull blah looking brown belt & I for some reason couldn't see past that…but the brightly colored belt you have it paired with looks awesome! I'm so ordering this dress right now.

    Audrey – If you went to the La Cantera J. Crew – did you happen to notice if they had any size 4 in the cafe wool capris? I want to try before I buy and I live by the PGA and hate fighting the traffic on 281. TIA – Pat

    Love your looks. Did you size up with the water's edge skirt? I'm also hoping the blouson dress will work for my figure!
