1) I saw this skirt on a fellow blogger, Nancy @ Adore to Adorn and I had to have it! It's so perfect for Spring and the lavender color is just beautiful! My only complaint...it's a little staticy, but I've already found a solution thanks to Wiki:)! 2) My shoes. I spotted them on Zara.com about a month ago. I waited and waited. Do I really need them? How often can I wear them? Finally, I decided to purchase them. I needed a brown pair of shoes and this pair was versatile enough to wear with skirts, shorts, jeans, etc. Hope you like this look! Have a great day:)!
