5 days and counting

We are down to the last 5 days to get your votes in HERE and you won't have to hear me talk about the CBS blog award anymore! Regardless of the outcome, I feel like a winner because of all your support and kind words :)
Last time I wore this skirt (HERE) I thought adding a pink top would help play up the colors, but I actually think white does a better job at showcasing the "rainbow".
And I figured by going basic on top, I could mix it up on the bottom, and that is where the leopard heels come into play.
I layered this skirt with another fuller skirt underneath to give it more volume, and I think it did the trick. It's my DIY petticoat ;)
It's also 5 days until I leave for NY and I would love to get in another post before I go, but with the start of school and an internship, that's not going to happen. However, I will do my best to post at least once while I am away and I will be reading all your lovely blogs, and of course you can follow me on TWITTER. I will for sure be sharing all my excitement about being in NY for the first time during Fashion Week.

wearing: f21 jacket and tank, fcuk skirt, calvin klein heels, thrifted belt, michael kors watch, ??? clutch
