à la mode.

Olive Urban Outfitters army jacket, Navy thrifted bow top via Goodwill, Brown c/o álainn bella olive olivia pleated skirt, Ivory vintage Chanel purse, Black Kenneth Cole Reaction flats via Crossroads, Gold c/o LUXLA hex nut bracelet, CC Skye starburst bracelet.

Sometimes it feels good to dress up classy and lady like :) -- which sums up what this outfit means to me.  I am in love with this pleated skirt from álainn bella -- it definitely makes twirling fun while evoking a beautiful classic Audrey Hepburn charm.  Alainn bella is also giving Inspirafashion readers a 15% discount off full priced items at their website, enter 'inspirafashion' at checkout :).
Decided to pair it off with a fun printed bow top thrifted from Goodwill,  á  la Parisian chic.  To make the look more wearable for everyday, layered over everything my Urban Outfitters army jacket.
Accessorizing is a fun sport.  The Chanel purse and Kenneth Cole Reaction flats I thrifted from Crossroads are the perfect icing to top off this outfit.
This week has been a crazy busy one -- had first midterm today, school and work everyday.  But to keep me going, I always look forward to Fridays and the weekend!  Which BTW, this weekend is Valentine's Day weekend!  I always get overly excited for the holidays (aka Christmas..President's Day even bc of no work/school).  But it's the time to celebrate loove!  Finally will update my Youtube channel!  Look out for a video I'm going to create on my V-Day outing w/ the bf..featuring items from!
Happy Wednesday Lovelies! We're half way to Friday!! :)
♥, Kathleen.
