Happy Wednesday friends! I found this pretty summer skirt at my favorite Atlanta consignment shop recently and used my store credit to purchase! I usually look for European made garments when thrifting - the quality is superior and the seam allowances are more generous. In this case, I widened the hips just a little. I thought, "What a fun summer skirt - I better wear it soon before the weather cools off," but really, who am I kidding? In Georgia, we won't get any cool weather until November. Thanks so much for visiting today!

The cap toe is really awesome. I have yet to see one with a bright coral and a metallic gold. Very striking!

Your floral skirt is so pretty and I LOVE those cap toe heels! I'm really jealous that you'll have warm weather for so long...I really need to move to a hotter climate :)

What a glorious outfit! It's colorful, super-classy, and detailed: I love how you've blended all the colors together, like how your nails match your shoes, and so forth. This ensemble is truly a work of art in my eyes!

Mary Ann, you look fantastic! Please tell me those shoes are still available somewhere? I am obsessed. Love this color combo and I'm with you on the summer weather, it will be summer until at least November here in FL yet I still catch myself saying I'm gearing up for fall.
