Bell(e) of the Ball

Wearing – Crop Top: Asos | Skirt: Francesca's {similar} | Shoes: Steve Madden | Clutch: {old, purchased in an Italian market} | Necklace: Purple Peridot | Bracelet: David Yurman
Watch: Michael Kors

Okay, so maybe I didn't attend a ball in this outfit, but I did feel like the belle of the Cirque du Soleil show and that's close to the same thing right? Maybe not, but I did feel like one of the cool kids that was styled to perfection during my birthday weekend and that's equally important in my book. 

While I would normally plan my outfit weeks in advance for my birthday celebration, I ran out of time this year and ended up throwing this look together randomly. After realizing I wanted to wear my new ASOS crop top (thanks Fashion Canvas for this awesome find!), I made a quick trip to the mall and left with this adorable bell skirt from Francesca's. I was super lucky to have found something to wear so quickly and thanked the fashion god's for smiling down upon me that day!

    1. Thank you Lorna! My go-to colors are always black and white so it's fun to accessorize then with brighter pops of color.
