I snagged these Camilla Skovgaard cutout pony hair platform sandals for a steal during spring sales this year. It was too cold to wear them when I first got them, but now seems to be the perfect time to let them out of the box.

I am taking this bright color trend for summer 2011 as far as I can by wearing this fluorescent pink Naven silk pleated mini skirt from Tea Leaf Clothing. It is a high quality skirt made right in Los Angeles. Paris Hilton has been seen rocking this skirt as well. What I really like about the skirt is the slanted pleating detail in the front. The back of the skirt zips up quite nicely and is not pleated. You can dress this skirt up to make it ultra sexy or dress it down for a casual daytime look, which is how I wore it. This was my first experience with Naven clothing and it will not be my last as the quality of the silk exceeded my expectations and the pleating was done in such a way that it added to the design of the skirt instead of taking away from it.
It is a higher rise skirt which is what made me want to pair it with this Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent belt. The moment I saw this belt I knew I had to snag it. It has this beautiful fabric print that some might call tribal combined with a brown leather trim. I thought it helped to dress down the skirt and stay true to my bohemian style. I can see using this belt with so many different pieces in my closet.
I also wore a T by Alexander Wang plain white ribbed tank top that is slightly sheer. When you are wearing bright colors it is best to downplay them with some black or white. Underneath the Alexander Wang tank I am wearing a new brand of bra. Dorothy from Itty Bitty Bra was kind enough to send me two bras. Itty Bitty Bras are specifically designed for small busted women falling into the A and B cup range. I have never had much luck with strapless bras myself as they always fall down on me, but I was pleasantly surprised when wearing this strapless number by Itty Bitty Bra. It never fell down and stayed in place and it was also very comfortable. Sometimes strapless bras can dig into your skin due to all the underwire, but not this one. I especially like the "u" notch between the cups. It was voted the best strapless bra for small busted women by InStyle magazine as well.
To keep in line with the tribal print belt and daytime feel I wore my Givenchy woven leather wedge sandals. These sandals are so comfortable for walking around and running errands. I like that they have the detailed woven leather straps and they are a designer shoe, but they have that casual look that I adore. These Givenchy wedges can really take a lot of wear and tear out on the streets, but no one can deny all the artistry that went into them. I place a lot of faith in Givenchy shoes and they usually never disappoint me. The leather on them is always so exquisite.
