Style Diary: Twin Lilac Skirts

Hi there! Now that I’m only posting four times a week, I’ll post an outfit post like this one every two weeks instead of every week. I’ve missed writing this series last week, so I’m glad that it’s back.

It’s getting so nice out where I am and the weather is just absolutely lovely. Spring has decided to come after all. I decided to take out this lilac faux leather skirt that I got back in September but haven’t worn until now. My friends and I decided to go to dinner that one day and since we were already in the area, we went to Urban Outfitters and my best friend and I decided to get matching skirts.

Jacket: Mom's Closet | Top: Urban Outfitters | Skirt: Urban Outfitters | Cardigan: Vintage | Necklace: Laura |  Shoes: G. H. Bass

I paired it with this other ivory lace crop top I got from Urban just last week, actually and it’s such a lovely little thing with a halter neckline that covers just enough skin combined with the skirt. To add a bit of light to the outfit, I added a simple pearl necklace and my mom's cream corduroy jacket. For shoes, I just opted for some peach and ivory canvas wedges because I seriously need the height (I'm only 5'3 or so and my legs are unfortunately pretty short as well).
I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty happy with this outfit. I wore this last week on Mother’s Day whilst at the tulip festival with my family when we just had a great time frolicking around (for lack of a better word) and taking pictures. All in all, it was a pretty nice day with the family.

Again, I’m not going to lie, I’m probably going to be wearing this tonight again, but a more dressed down version, to go see a play at my middle school with a few old classmates. But shh, no one needs to know.

Though I’ve seen most of them quite recently, I’m still pretty excited and almost a bit giddy at the thought of seeing them again, especially in the place where we’d shared so many amazing memories over the two years we’d spent together. I’ll let you guys know how that turns out in this week’s Sunday Funday, but just for the record, I have high hopes for this play/reunion-type thing.

What did you think of the outfit? Are you a fan of Urban Outfitters? What are you up to this weekend? Leave your comments below! I'd love to hear them.

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. aha I'm only 5'4 so I totally get what you mean about needing a bit more height! This outfit is just so pretty and perfect plus I am completely in love with your skirt!

    1. Thank you so much, Charlotte. :) I never would've guessed that you're only 5'4 because you look so tall in your blog photos. - J
