What can I say? I love this skirt! The last time I wore it I had a pretty nice buzz on (see Cheers to 24 years: Fashion) and I styled it with a plain white tee, cardigan, and a gold statement necklace. This time I wanted a more polished look so I swapped the tee for a v neck sweater and patent leather waist belt.

Even though it’s April it’s still chilly (and rainy) here in Burlington so I kept warm and dry by layering a lightweight sweater under my trench and added a cozy scarf to ward off the gusting winds. Since I didn’t tuck my sweater in I used a thick belt to add definition to my waistline. It was so rainy and windy this morning, that tights were a must even though I was worried that adding them would make my outfit too dark and heavy for early spring. Knits and leather are both very winter/fall centric fabrics, especially when done in such dark colors. In an effort to counteract the dark color pallet I choose a light colored shoe. The golden hues in the heels helped to lighten everything up without throwing the rest of the outfit off. (I’m hoping that the sun will push all the way through the clouds and I’ll be able to rock bare legs on the walk home from work!)

Shoes have always been my go to piece when it comes to anchoring or completing outfits. I love the pattern detailing on these Michael Antonio heels! Not only is it a beautiful pattern but it draws your eye down, effectively lengthening your legs. Even though the heel is almost 4 inches the platform in the shoe makes them surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in.

D and I got back into Burlington late last night and promptly fell asleep. We had such an amazing time, the reception was out of control beautiful and you could see the love and happiness radiating from the bride and groom. Tonight (after unpacking) I’m going to download all the photos I took this weekend,  I can’t wait to share them with you, so stay tuned!

What did you do this weekend? What’s your “go-to” accessory when you need to complete an outfit?
