wipe the stardust from our eyes.

this weekend was so jam-packed with wonderful things!  time with my family has been frequent and precious as of late, and I am enjoying every minute of it.  since today is my cousin's birthday (happy 1-7, Trip!), and Tuesday is my little brother's birthday (Tate, you need to stop getting older...), we had a little get-together for them at our place yesterday.  we lounged by the pool and had a ton of fun.  this morning, my dearest friend Andrew met me for church, and then we ventured Lenox Mall together.  I saw the sartorial wonder that is Zara, and fell in love with absolutely every item in Anthropologie (guys, I would seriously live there if I could).  and, here's what I wore...

top: Poetry ; bodycon skirt: Urban Outfitters ; flowy skirt: thrifted/altered ; boots: thrifted

necklace: Charming Charlie ; belt: thrifted ; double ring: Urban ; jade ring: Forever21

remember this post where I featured floaty skirts?  well, I had seen them in various places, such as Urban Outfitters and on Gretchen Jones in the season 8 finale of Project Runway, but never at a price I was willing to pay.  inspired by all of this, I decided to embark on a little DIY adventure.  I scoured thrift stores for sheer skirts, and finally located this one.  I cut out the lining, and voila!  I created a piece I am quite excited about.

this look also features my very first remix item here on the blog.  if you remember, I also wore this top here.  it is so versatile!  I can picture wearing it with almost everything in my closet, weather it be layered over a dress or paired with a pair of high-waisted shorts.  it really doesn't photograph well, but I'm sure you'll still be seeing lots of this little beauty here on the blog.

tomorrow, I'm going to be introducing a band new feature entitled "meet my friends Monday"!  I'm really pumped about it!  I can't wait to see what you think.

I hope everyone has had a weekend as pleasant as I have.  xo, kelseylee.

  4. I am such a fan of the flowy skirts, especially in black! And Ia also refuse to pay a ridiculous price for them. Your little DIY project turned out so well! I am loving how you styled it. xx
