What I'm Wearing: Ombre Girl

During a discussion with my blogging buddy Bessie (check out her blog here), on Twitter about consignment store shopping, this particular skirt came up as one of the name brand finds I've got at a good price. I found this Michael Kors skirt at a consignment shop quite some time ago for $14 with the tags still on it. The conversation rekindled my love for this skirt and I busted it back out after a long hiatus.

I decided to wear this skirt with a lighter pink top and eggplant colored tights to create a sort of  ombre look. I think these colors all work really well together and make up a chic and girly look. My favorite thing about this? I am wearing sunglasses and no coat. It has been so wonderful here lately. I cannot even believe this has been our winter so far!

Skirt: Michael Kors via Clothes Mentor, Top: Express, Tights: Hue via Elder Beerman
