High-Waisted: EBEW Florals

I'm super happy with this look that came together. I wore this to a Celebration of Life and a Cookie Lee Team Meeting. I hadn't thought of layering a skirt over a dress before now, but it worked! It also qualifies for entry into the Everybody, Everywear Floral challenge.

Florals | Everybody, Everywear

Here's the math of it all: Black Dress + Black/Pink/White Bold Floral Skirt + Dark Grey Sweater + Cookie Lee Jewelery + Strappy Heels =  This!

What do you think?

Nemo has a "Nemo fin", and Yes, I have a "Nemo toe."

Sporting the flippy floppies while we walked to lunch downtown. Hubby took this pic.

Pattern Close up!

I love the sheer and sequin detailing on this short sleeved cardi. This was a fantastic find while thrifting.

In front of a vacant storefront downtown. I love the old time feel our small town still has.

I feel pretty, oh so pretty!

A high contrast edit of this photo brought out the colors and textures of this otherwise washed out pic.

  1. I love wearing a skirt over a dress. Not only does it give a dress another use, but it also acts as another barrier just in case the skirt decides to flip up due to wind.
    I'm also excited about the Paper Doll Project. I really like how your accessorize your outfits. I can't wait to see what you picked out for me to style.

  2. LOVE the entire outfit!! I am a sucker for bright beautiful prints and that skirt is awesome!

    Great styling and I love the skirt over the dress idea, very creative!

  3. This skirt is super cute. I love the high waist and the pattern is adorable.

  4. Cute! Love the high waisted look!
