Scalloped Skirt + a Few (more) Favorites

Another one of those posts where almost every piece I am wearing has a little story to go along with it.. Let’s start with the skirt, shall we?

I had the amazing opportunity to brunch with the girls from Annie Griffin Collection and Jen from Sail to Sable at Jen’s fabulous Upper East Side apartment a few weeks ago. (See a few Instagram snaps here, here, & here.) Jen has *hands down* the cutest and most fabulously decorated apartment that I’ve seen in New York. I wanted to move in, and still do! After a delicious brunch, the ladies gave us a fun monogramed gift bag with a few goodies to take home. Inside was this gorgeous purple scalloped skirt that I just can’t get enough of! If you aren’t yet familiar with Annie Griffin Collections, check out her site. You can get 20% off of your purchase with code blog20! I had the pleasure of meeting Annie, herself, and she is the sweetest!

Next up, this Bauble Bar necklace. I am kind of in love! I really like the light blue and brown stones, I think they are so unexpected and unique. Plus, the color combination surprisingly goes with almost everything… Even a purple skirt, for example! 😉

Okay, how freaking adorable is this Michael Kors bag?! I’ve always had quite the penchant for anything mini. Mini Coopers, mini appetizers, heck, I even went through a phase in college where I wanted a mini piglet. As a pet. #blameitonthebooze 😉

Anyway, I just couldn’t say no when I spotted this mini MK bag. I actually had the full-size version of this bag in college, but I just can’t get over this teeny tiny size. I was staying in Providence, RI for work a few weeks ago and had some time to kill so I popped into the mall downtown. I had been eyeing this bag online, but had no idea how small it really was. Once I saw it in person at the Michael Kors store, I was sold. Too cute for words! Now, the practicality is a whole different ballgame. I can fit my phone, keys, and that’s about it. Maybe my ID and debit card, too. Oh well, everything has a purpose and this bag’s purpose is to just be a little cutie. 🙂

    That purple skirt is gorgeous! Purple is my favorite color and I have to actively keep myself from buying too much of it because I own more than any normal person should own.

    Very pretty outfit Jessica. The skirt is beautiful and i love the necklace.I would never be able to use that small of a bag. IT’s gorgeous and I love MK but would so not be practical for me. The older I get the bigger my bags get.

    The trim on the skirt makes all the difference! You can really see the scallop detail, I would have never thought something so simple could be transformed so much with a little outline 🙂 The color is perfect, great post! I am chatting scallops tomorrow, with a big thanks to you from an instagram comment a few weeks ago…stay tuned!

    That scalloped skirt is so cute. And I love how you paired it with a white button down shirt. I struggle with the basic white button down, and that is a really cute way to pair it.

    This outfit is precious, and so is the matching story! I, too, am a sucker for anything mini (I’m mini myself) except for dessert! Three scoops of ice cream, please!
