Thayer Flow Tank in Royal - Snagged off Shopbop.com for $171 Retail

Yves Saint Laurent Ankle-Strap Pumps in Gray - Snagged off Yoox.com for $400 (Retail: $895)

Cosabella Lexy Cropped Camisole in Mint - Snagged off Shopbop.com for $33 (Retail: $70)

I decided to try some color blocking in shades of blue for spring.  I saw the skirt hanging near the silk tank and I thought the two blues would look pretty fabulous together.  The silk tank is a new purchase for spring from Shopbop.  I own a lot of Thayer camisoles and they are great quality for the price as compared to other silk tanks from similar brands.  This one is a beautiful royal blue and it was featured in one of Shopbop's spring look books.  They definitely sold one to me for full price.  I layered this beautiful mint green lace cropped camisole from Cosabella underneath it.  It matches the skirt so perfectly I couldn't resist.

The Quail skirt was a $49 snag off of Gilt Groupe.  The mint green/seafoam color caught my eye right away.  I love Quail for their girly, feminine pieces and their skirts especially in silk are divine.  I actually own this skirt in gray and black as well and you can find a link to me wearing the gray one last summer in the outfit description above.  I always wanted a skirt with buttons down the front and the price was right.  I also own a Quail ruffle skirt called the valentine skirt that I wore last spring on the blog.  It has ruffles in the back and it is done in a beautiful nude color.  The ruffle back is actually removable as well. 

I paired the whole outfit with gray suede pumps from Yves Saint Laurent.  I always wanted these ankle strap imperiale pumps and when I saw them pop up on Yoox in my size it was a dream come true.  I actually bought them in black as well because they had both colors available in my size and I knew it was my one chance to get them.  They are very comfortable and they fit about a half size small so if you are interested in purchasing them I would go up a half size.  The ankle strap is so pretty on these and I don't think it cuts off your legs at all.  I love the huge silver buckle and the shape of the last.  I think the gray color works well with all the blue as well.

Henry Beguelin Beaded Chain Fringe Necklace - Gift from Boyfriend at Henry Beguelin in Aspen, Colorado

Derek Lam Odesa Lace Up Sandals in Gray - Worn before here with Free People floral dress

When I picked out this outfit I started by deciding that I wanted to wear these Derek Lam lace up sandals.  I like the different shades of gray the laces and the shoes have and I wanted that to come out in my outfit.  Within my recent purchases from Gilt Group, I found the perfect tank top and skirt.  I own this Quail june skirt in two other colors because it just seems like a fun basic silk skirt to have around and I like the button detail going up the front.  This Alexander Wang pocket tank was another great snag from Gilt and I am sure I will end up wearing it constantly.  I added a fringe chain necklace my boyfriend bought me at the Henry Beguelin boutique in Aspen.  I find myself always wanting the same necklaces over and over and they always have some sort of fringe on them.

Chanel Camellia Diamond Necklace - Gift from Boyfriend for Valentine's Day

Chanel Camellia Diamond Ring - Gift from Boyfriend for Birthday

These photos were taken by some beautiful lilies before we went to dinner in downtown Denver.  I wore my cutout blazer by Cynthia Rowley that I snagged off Gilt Group.  I thought it went really well with the low back of the strapless dress.  Plus, I have so many blazers and decided I need to start layering more so I can wear them all.  These Dolce & Gabbana heels remind me of the suede and mesh ones Chanel came out with last year.  The quilting on the footbed is beautiful and reminds me of Chanel as well.  My diamond necklace and ring were both from the Chanel Camellia collection and given to me by my lovely boyfriend.
