Turn that Frown Upside Down

I am behind on life and posts and really, everything. If I were a news station I would now be reporting that Kim Kardashian had a baby. That is how behind I feel. Ah well. As my mother would say 'such is life...'.

So before we get to talking about my time in Texas and all kinds of other posts I am slow at, let me just post part two of the outfit I copied off Merl.

Skirt? Thrifted by Merl Top? AA (here) Shoes? DvF Necklace? Clyde's ReBirth (here) Clutch? h&m

You know, I don't often do day to night looks... and I don't try to milk an outfit into two posts too often either (though I have) but when Merl gets behind the camera to take your picture, you suddenly have a problem editing the pictures down. Seriously, she makes you feel like you have got it going on. There are people all around going about their day and she's yelling at you about how good you look and how you need to hold still because that is 'the shot' right there. And it kinda gets to your head and you ask the next person walking by to get you a sparling water with a lime.
Not a lemon, a lime, you plebeian.
Of course no sparkling water ever appears.

But seriously, shooting outfit pictures with Merl is a ton of fun. I can tell because there is a whole lot of genuine smiling happening in the pictures...

Love the skirt! I think a cropped top + longer skirt is such a classy look. You pull it off perfectly!

I am so behind lately! But you do look fantastic! (And no worries - Kim K. still hasn't taken the baby out of the house, so maybe it doesn't count if you missed it?)

I love this! The peak at your mid drift makes it super sexy but it's so subtle that it's still really appropriate :)

Ah, I loved this look immediately when I saw it on instagram! Everything looks like it was meant to go together - from the necklace right on down to the perfectly-slitted skirt!
