Pleated Maxi + Floppy Hat

- Outfits

So before I say anything else about this outfit… this is how nice Minnesota’s weather has been lately! Definitely a month or two ahead of schedule on being able to stand outside in short sleeves without freezing! I bought this hat a couple weekends ago when my family was in town, and I talked about it in my accessory shopping post last Friday.  I was so excited to wear it, along with wearing my new LC Lauren Conrad pleated maxi from Kohls(I have wanted a floppy hat and maxi skirt for forever)! I wore them together this weekend along with a short-sleeve military style jacket and buckle booties for a tough contrast to the super feminine feel of the hat, skirt and ruffle shirt.  Part of this outfit feels very fall like to me, but I also think it works for spring with the soft blush color of the skirt!  What do you think?!

P.S.  I was completely honored to be featured as Chic of the Week last Friday on LaurenConrad by Lauren and her staff! You can read the full feature here.  Lauren Conrad has always been an inspiration to me… especially in fashion, that I was so surprised and completely giddy when I found out!
