I found the idea for today's outfit while searching for images of potential cities to visit on our upcoming trip to Europe. Instead of a pleated red skirt, I thought why not pair a red top I already own with a pleated skirt in another color, and add a fun purse? The result is so festive, and one of my favorite outfits, ever. And while I won't be wearing it on our trip, I'll certainly be finding a use for it here at home!
