Lookbook: Paperbag

When I was in Vegas, it was just the start of the sale season so everything was on sale, I mean everything. We all spent too much money but I think we all came back with some great stuff. One of my buys was this paperbag skirt which I knew I had to get once I saw the color. Isn’t it pretty? And I’ve talked about my love for pockets which makes this skirt even better!

What I’m Wearing:
Tank: Banana Republic
Skirt: BCBG (buy it here)
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Necklace: from Nordstrom


I kept the top really simple because of the high waist and the pleats of the skirt. I didn’t want the outfit to be too busy so the cami was just right, especially because it was a particularly balmy night. It was a bit dressy but not too dressy. And no, I didn’t wear this to the office, only to dinner with a new friend!

Here’s a close up of the necklace. It was just the right accessory to add to the outfit. I have been loving multiple chain necklaces and this one with the pearls always helps to pretty up an outfit.

This picture was processed with the “Lux (soft)” action from Totally Rad Actions at 80% opacity as explained in this post.

    I love this outfit. that color is divine and it looks so great on you..I think I said before that I loved the purple for you:) I think pairing it with the simple cami is perfection and you can definitely wear this ensemble to work with a little blazer maybe with a 3/4 inch sleeve or a cardi. loves. you are adorabella.

    I really like the color and length of that skirt, it's very flattering! I'm not sure about paperbag waists yet, they do look quite intriguing but I'm unsure whether to jump on that bandwagon yet myself.

    P.S. So true about cocktail dresses ~ sometimes they feel too dressy for an actual cocktail party!
