Peachy Petals

I try not to play favorites with my clothes, but sometimes a few pieces carve a special place in my heart … and closet. I first fest for this Ted Baker skirt back in January, but our love affair really started in February when I purchased the beaut for NYFW. Last Feb was my first real NY Fashion week (eek) so I had to show up in style, but didn't want to splurge on something I wouldn't wear again - I tend to stick to pretty affordable pieces (shopping at asos, modcloth & lulus on the reg + bauble bar both online & via nordies for killer jewels). For this splurge I had to pick up my first Ted Baker skirt, something I knew I could wear countless ways.





So back to the versatility of this skirt - I've dressed it down with a graphic tee & flats or a tank & a denim jacket. It also looks cute with a moto jacket or a simple blouse & heels. Today I played on the petals by adding a old top to the mix & classic louboutins, but have also worn it with a black crop top & colorful pumps. I love this skirt with black tights & booties for fall or winter, or with a sequin tee or sparkly pumps for a holiday party! But my favorite look had to be dressing outside the lines with a little pattern mixing when I paired it with (you guessed it) a striped crop top -- see it here!

Sadly this skirt is sold out, but the good news is Ted Baker is a creature of habit, producing killer floral skirts every season. Plus you could wear most of them in all the ways I chatted about earlier! Here are some of my favs:

P.S. I don't know if you noticed but I got a keratin (thanks mom)
and now my hair is super straight! What do you think?

And P.P.S Thanks to one of my blogger besties for crashing this post, miss Daisy O (yeah, that's her real last name, how cool is that!!!). She has a killer intsagram feed so check that ish out!
