Look of the Day: Graceland

Every once in a while I put an outfit together and then later realize its influence. I put on this skirt yesterday because all of my dresses were boring me, and this skirt seemed fun and free enough for the hot weather. Once the rest of the outfit fell into place and I pranced around twirling my skirt, it was then that I realized the outfit reminded me of Audrey Hepburn as Princess Anne in Roman Holiday. Give or take a few inches on my hemline and some exposed shoulders, all I needed was a scarf tied around my neck and you might mistake me for a runaway princess. Alright getting ahead of myself there. I'm no Kate Middleton, that princess has class and style, but at times I can't help but pretend to mimic a Princess's grace at times.
"Alright, alright look. I don't have grace, I don't want grace. I don't even say grace."
Suzanne where you AT?
A bun is about as close to pixie cut as I'll get, Princess Anne was a rebel!
LF Stores Blouse and Urban Expressions bag {oh you know just that one that Refinery 29 liked enough to include in their bag stalking post} h&m hat (similar here), Seychelles sandals and Forever 21 skirt.
I love skirts that twirl!
The breeze yesterday almost had me mimicking Marilyn Monroe yesterday, yup told you I didn't have grace.
