Loving Simplicity

    Boys and girls, I love simplicity.  Simple outfits made up from simple pieces that look great.  This is probably why I loved Jenn's outfit from yesterday.  Simple t-shirt, simple skirt, simple flip-flops = great outfit.  I went for the same thing today.  Instead of a patterned shirt I went for a patterned skirt, a skirt I made in fact.  I am a great big fan of this skirt.  It was really easy to make and turned out really cute.  
    To balance out the patterned skirt I went with this black pseudo-wrap top.  The story behind this top is interesting.  Several years ago I got this top in burgundy and my sister got it in black (this very one in fact.)  At that time, for whatever reason, the wrap just didn't work on me.  It made me look all funny so I gave my sister the burgundy one.  About a month ago my sister was cleaning out her closet and handed me this top (and the matching one in burgundy) so I tried it on.  This time around, it worked.  It turns out that the wrap works much better when I'm wearing a good bra and makes it look like I have a real waist!  Yay life!
    As you may also notice, I'm wearing one of my uncle's necklaces (again).  The first time I saw it, I just knew I would love it.  It is completely within my color palette.  The green and blues just called to me.  It doesn't match the skirt exactly as it doesn't have any turquoise, but it works because the blues and green meld together to work with the turquoise skirt.   So if blues and greens are your color palette or the necklace calls to you or you simply want to help my uncle and aunt out, the necklace is available here.

The Details:
Top: Gap
Skirt: Me!
Necklace: Tio Gordo on Etsy
flip-flops: ON
