3 Ways To Wear a Yellow Lace Skirt and a Sunshine Award

YELLOW LACE SKIRT - Chetta B (Thrifted - Thanks, Mom!)
ARGYLE SWEATER - Old Navy
WHITE TANK - Bebe
SHOES - Korea

BLACK/GRAY STRIPED SHIRT - Thakoon for Target
GRAY BELT - Forever 21
BLACK STRAPPY WEDGES - Colin Stuart





















RUST/GOLD SILK TOP - Ella Moss (Thanks, Fierce!)
CREAM/GOLD/GREEN WEDGES - G-Series

Today I'm feeling like a fashion bad-ass.  I dunno why, maybe it's the neon yellow lace skirt (I know, doesn't really look neon in the pictures!) and matching nail polish.  Or the 2 sunshine awards (Thank YOU, Fash-uh-nee-stah and GretchTM!).  Or the lashes (I put on some fake ones and they always make me feel glamorous!).  Whatever it is, it totally affected the clothing I chose and the poses I did.

RULES FOR THE AWARD:
Thank the person who gave it
Write a post about it
Pass it on to 12 bloggers
I decided to do this "3 Ways To Wear a Yellow Lace Skirt" in honor of the SUNSHINE AWARD bestowed on me by the always fabulous Fash-uh-nee-stah and the extremely stylish GretchTM!  Thank you, girls, for the honor!  

I would like to give this award to: Tiffany at BREAKFAST WITH TIFFANY, THE CAT HAG, Melissa at WRITE IT IN LIPSTICK, Bonnie at GLAM KITTENS LITTEBOX, Mary at STYLEFYLES, Gracey at FASHION FOR GIANTS, Vanessa at BIG GIRL. LITTLE BUDGET. TINY TOWN, Maya at SOCCER MOM STYLE, Nnena at STAR-CROSSED SMILE, Kimberlee at OUR LIFE. UNEDITED., Melyssa at BEAUTINIQUE, and DEAR GIRL.

I was reading in a magazine that Tim Gunn suggests wearing neon colors with gray or brown.  So I decided to try it.  The first look is one I copied from the magazine where the model was wearing an argyle sweater with a similar skirt.  I decided to pair it with the shoes I bought in Korea a few years back.  The second outfit I did was a striped black/gray shirt.  Yes, I decided to mix prints.  Told you I was feeling like a bad-ass!  Finally, my last outfit was a rust shirt so kindly given to me by Fierce (you can see more pieces she gave me here).  And the shoes are the ones I wore for my wedding 5-1/2 years ago!!!

So like I was saying, I had MAJOR FASHION ATTITUDE.  However, each time I finished shooting photos I would get a little FASHION BUZZ KILL when I'd come into my room and see Pigtails.  Unfortunately, I think maybe she too was feeling like a FASHION BAD-ASS...

Totally love the argyle sweater w/ skirt!! Never would have thought of that combo. Expression on Pigtail's face is wonderful (& a bit scary.) Oh, mama... enjoy your tiger cub while she's still little!

Congratulations on the award. You wouldn't think that skirt would be so versatile, glad you proved me wrong (: I love each of those looks.
Pigtails expression in the first photo is priceless. She's so happy in the 2nd, after knowing you weren't mad that she was going through your jewelry. That age is my favorite, everything is new and fun.

Oh, thank you so much for this award, Claire! I adore you too!! Also, Pigtails is a total fashion bad-ass. I think she gets it from her mommy.

I read the same Tim Gunn article and have been wanting to try the neon with tan or grey - love how you styled it.

LOVE that skirt. What a great thrift find. I also have a neon mini (pink/coral hue) that never looks neon in the photos.
I like how you styled it in the first outfit. The shoes there go really nice too.
Cool with the matching nail polish.
Your little was just adorable accessorizing herself.

Congrats on the award.
