I've been wanting to pull this pink taffeta skirt out of my closet lately. Inspired by the street style photo, I paired it with striped shoes I've been on the fence about keeping. A plain white top was my first instinct but I decided to mix it up with polka dots. The necklace came last, and I'm showing it with or without in case the extra color feels like too much. 

Top: J.Crew Factory, $40
Skirt: Banana Republic, $15 (similar, similar, similar)
Shoes: Payless, $20 (similar, similar)
Necklace: Shop Ethereal c/o (similar, similar)
Earrings: My Stella & Dot$44
Purse: Francesca's c/o (similar)
Approx. dates: Skirt is 2 years ago. Necklace is 1 year ago. Top and shoes are new.

Also... you may have noticed a new piece of jewelry today. While the ring is pretty, I'm much more excited about what it stands for - being engaged to the most thoughtful, sweet and gifted man I've ever known. I don't share much about my personal life, but it just doesn't feel right debuting the ring without debuting the man behind it. Here's a look back at just a few of our favorite memories. I call him "JJ" for short - his initials, and my soon-to-be initials, too!

So excited to announce our engagement!
