When I started my blog about three years ago, I did it with very little expectation.  The first day I got over 100 page views, I basically threw myself a party.  100 people cared about what I decided to wear on a given day.  It was bananas.  When a company reached out and wanted to send me something, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning.  It was so exciting and humbling to develop a tiny bit of influence on this ginormous interweb. 

It's bee really gratifying to note improvement over time and see the hours I put in pay off.  From my photos and outfits improving, to opportunities to work with some phenomenal companies, big and small.  While I can't pick favorites, I gotta tell you, I freaked out when the chance to work with Banana Republic presented itself!  I have always been a such a huge fan of the company and their clothes, so when I got the email a few weeks ago, I couldn't type the astounding yes email fast enough.

They sent over this floral pencil skirt and ornate tasseled necklace.  I instantly fell in love with how the necklace subtly picked up the dark fuchsia in the skirt.  The challenge then was what top can I wear that isn't just white or pale pink... I opted for navy stripes, because they served to contrast the girliness of the floral and help edge it up a little.  I matched my shoes to my necklace, because keeping your accessories in the same neutral color palette helps balance out an otherwise bold look.  Overall, I love how the look came together!  How would you style this skirt?

Also, perfect timing, Banana Republic has a 40% off your entire purchase promo going on!  Get shopping ;)
