How to Wear DIY: Lovely lace skirt and festive pastels

"Festive pastels" may not be quite the right term, but let me explain.  This month's Everybody, Everywear challenge is green, for St. Patrick's Day!  And I don't really own much green.  But, I love the site (check out the concept here if you're not familiar) and wanted to join in, so I pulled out this pretty pastel green cardi.  Paired with what is definitely becoming one of my fave skirts, the lace one I made not long ago, I think it's a pretty but not over-the-top festive springy look.

Green | Everybody, Everywear


It's getting to be almost too late in the year for my (wintery) suede flower pumps!  Almost.
Sweater: Target via Goodwill. Top: Old Navy. Necklace: Forever 21. Belt: Charlotte Russe.
Shoes: Vince Camuto. Skirt: DIY, upcycled vintage lace dress!

Of course, it's not quite spring--it was gorgeous and sunny yesterday afternoon, but windy, and of course we woke up to an inch of snow on the ground!!  Really?!?!?  Really, Oregon!??!  Lame.

Hoping for more spring soon!!
