Easter Flowers



Outfit details: Anthropologie Red Bird Stratus Cloud top
plenty by Tracy Reese skirt ("vintage" Anthro--1 on eBay)
Target Wakeisha sandals (inspired by these Seychelles
Thrifted Dooney and Bourke satchel

This is what I wore yesterday for a laid back Easter Sunday. This skirt has been beckoning me for weeks now. Only recently have I found the perfect top to pair with it.

One of my favorite Anthro girls totally sold me on this top when I stepped into the store. It occurred to me that I have a lot of printed skirts and very few tops that work with them. I love to wear color and print, and have a hard time talking myself into buying anything that seems plain or uninteresting  on its own (which to me often means solid and white). But reason prevailed--I am looking for more tops in general and I was desperate to try on whatever they had.

This at first didn't impress me much. The shell is a slub jersey knit with raw edged chiffon layers. Slub knit tops in general to me look large and slouchy, so at first I wrinkled my nose. But then I put it on and dutifully tucked it into the waistband of the skirt I was wearing. And it grew on me really quickly.

I was looking for tops that would work with high waisted skirts for a 50's silhouette. This one fit the bill, surprisingly! The jersey shell allows the top to fit comfortably while still looking polished. I especially like the way the layers float outside the skirt--it feels very airy and ladylike.

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I was glad to enjoy sunny days and time spent with all of my favorite people. The shopping ban is officially lifted, but I think I will still restrict myself to a purchasing diet for the long run. Stay tuned for the pieces I finally let myself buy though!

ETA: As of this morning (4/6), the Status Clouds top is on sale! It's a great piece, especially at the price of $39.95.


  1. I'm loving the outfits w/your long high-waisted skirts!

  2. Super cute outfit!

    xx Love & Aloha
    **I have a little GIVEAWAY on my blog. Ends Tonight!

  3. Oh, I like the top a lot! It looks pretty on you. I bet it would even look great with dark skinnies and a slouchy purse... hmm... haha :)

  4. so pretty! that top is absolutely lovely and perfect for that skirt

  5. Gorgeous, Jinah! And actually the first thing that caught my eye was the jersey top! It looks perfect on you, and you are right about that kind of 50s vibe too!

  6. LOVE this. Way to work in the feminine top with a vintage skirt! K, now you have to let me borrow this...

    Enter to win a William Riera dress!

  7. You look so ladylike - I love it!
    Those Target flats are a dead ringer for the Seychelles - I wonder if any Target stores have them?! Must check it out!

  8. I have the same issue with buying "plain" tops – I often can't do it! I always love J.Crew's selections for basics, though, so most of my basics come from there. That is, when I can convince myself to buy basics, haha! The top is very pretty though, and the detailing makes it much more interesting. I love the layers! And tucked into a skirt, it looks divine!

  9. Oh my gosh! Your theory on solid tops + printed skirts is totally true and now I want your shirt so badly! *running off to check Anthro's inventory*

  10. Justine--If you can find one left, I think it is totally worth the sale price tag!

    Elaine--Haha, if you and I are ever in the same state, we should totally do a clothing swap and dress up out of each others' closets/suitcases.

    Kim--They look like they're sold out online but I've seen the black and metallic versions at my local Target stores. But be wary--the black of the PVC stained my pedi. Boo!

  11. was i right about the top, or what??

    i bought it in grey. so cute.

  12. Sooo cute Jinah!! I love your skirt collection. This one in particular reminds me of the Miu Miu tablecloth skirts from a few seasons back -- love :) I think you accessorized it perfectly as well!


Bonjour y'all! Thanks for stopping by.
