I wore this to my birthday and family celebration dinner last night. Today is actually my real birthday, but since it's the last day of school and we have pool party plans, we decided to hang out together a day early. We had plenty of reasons to celebrate; award ceremonies at school, Logan passing the dreaded STARR Test (Texas mandated for public schools) and nailing her round-off-back-hand-spring, Landry rocking a one-handed cartwheel, the last day of school, summer break, my birthday, a Spurs basketball win and glorious weather. All were perfect excuses to put on a pair of heels, festive skirt and toast to a blessed week.

Speaking of skirts, how fun is the print on this one from Chicwish? I don't own many animal print patterns, but leopard and birds win me over every single time. It is low in stock, but I linked to a few other options above. I love it's high waist because it gave me another chance to wear a cropped shirt. The top I am wearing is actually a regular button down that I knotted to accentuate my waistline. I think this is important when wearing any bottoms that sit higher. It also makes your legs look longer. I am admitting that this might need to be the last full length midi-skirt that gets added to my closet. I realized tonight that I own one too many. It's one trend that I haven't gotten enough of and has been a lot fun to style. The versatility goes further than you would think; weddings, showers, work, church, brunch, dinner out or quite honestly any occasion.
Okay, enough rambling. I hope you ladies have a wonderful weekend. I am off to continue our celebrations and have some fun in the sun.
