Haute Hippie Bias Sequin Mini Skirt in Antique Gold - Snagged off Gilt.com for $129 (Retail: $300)

The Reformation Bridge Button Down Top in Pin Stripe - Snagged off RevolveClothing.com for $130.90 (Retail: $154)

Haute Hippie never fails to impress me with their mini skirts so when I saw this gold sequin skirt for sale at a pretty good price on Gilt Groupe I jumped on it.  The fit is perfect and the quality is as expected from Haute Hippie.  My collection of Haute Hippie mini skirts keeps growing and growing for a reason.  I usually try to stay away from gold sequin pieces because they don't always mesh well with my skin tone.  However, this gold sequin skirt was my chance to stray from my usual rules.  This skirt itself is lined in silk and the sequins are not scratchy, making it a great buy.  Something about the skirt itself made me want to dress it down with a business-like top complete with pin stripes.

I snagged this Reformation top off of Revolve Clothing with a discount code.  It is 100% silk and has a racer back.  I like the subtle stripes throughout the top.  I knew Reformation was a good quality brand because I had bought their fly lace shorts a few months ago.  The top doesn't disappoint.  I tucked in one side and left the other side untucked to dress down the sequin skirt a little bit.  I have seen others dress down sequins with striped tees, but I think the top being sleeveless and silky makes it a little bit different.  Also, the stripes are not as in your face. 

I wanted to wear my new Charlotte Olympia suede sandals that have a unique gold platform.  I snagged these during the Net-a-Porter sale.  I wanted them at full price, but I am glad I waited.  In one of the photos I am attempting to put a toe back in that escaped from the suede straps.  I am particular like that.  That damn toe likes to be different.  Anyway, Charlotte Olympia shoes are always comfortable in my opinion and these are no exception.  I like that they stand out from the rest of my all black sandals due to the gold platform.

This slouchy knit sweater from Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent was the perfect snag for spring.  It is lightweight, yet somewhat sheer, making it a great transitional piece.  On a colder day you can layer it over a basic tank like I did and on a warmer day just layer it over a frilly bralette.  I had been looking for a white slouchy sweater with very little detailing for a long time and I was happy to snag this one off of Gilt Groupe.  It is very soft as well and the knit isn't so delicate that it will catch on items during the day.  I paired it with one of my favorite pair of shorts by Reformation that have a scalloped lace hem.  You have seen these before on Fashion Snag paired with a lace hem tunic and suede jacket.  The Reformation is a new brand I am really getting into and I loved these shorts so much I bought a silk striped sleeveless shirt from them as well. 

I stocked up on some new types of tights at Express, including this sheer pair I am wearing here.  These are for cooler days in the spring when I don't want to wear opaque tights.  Express is my go-to place for tights because I have found that their tights never snag, last forever, and are a pretty good price.  The slouchy bucket bag was a sale steal off of Shopbop.  It goes great with casual outfits and is a good alternative to my black leather quilted Dior bag.  The Balmain fringed boots dress up even the most casual outfit, giving it a little more of a bohemian flare.  The knuckle ring I threw on for a pop of green color since it was an overcast day.
