Makeshift (See Jane Wear)

Gap skirt, J Crew tank, H&M jacket, BR necklace, Zara flats, LV bag, Karen Walker sunglasses
During a mindless internet scour (I do this often), I stumbled upon this dress and was instantly smitten.  I then realized that I had a pink, maxi skirt AND a plain, white t-shirt; basically, I had the dress already!  I threw on an old, statement necklace and a favorite, striped blazer from last year evoilĂ !  It's my new favorite makeshift dress.

I actually like the volume in your skirt a bit more than the other one - this is a great look!

Great outfit! The pink of the skirt is so vibrant and definitely matches the feeling and look of the dress you saw. Love the striped blazer as well.
