Let the awkwardness continue! Ha. I bought this skirt from--surprise--I Love Fashion boutique, and have worn it probably too many times already. But I can't help it. It's kind of perfect. It's just long enough (and it kind of makes me look tall, which is always good when you're standing at just over 5 feet), the lace adds fun detail and it allows breathing room (which is perfect on these 80 degree SoCal days). And you can't really go wrong with pairing a top; anything will match...including my vest from Costa Rica which I'm still obsessing over, months later.
PS, I totally wore this skirt to brunch.
