Electric Blue

(HaveaLook blouse and skirt, Sienna Ray bag, Bloch ballet flats)

I have been dying to wear more color and when my sister gifted me this electric blue skirt, I was ecstatic. I need more airy pieces in my life! Especially in this dreadful heat. Another little gift from the big sis? This stellar sheer backed crop top. Paired with my favorite ballet flats and I was ready for a fun evening out. These babies travel with me everywhere and I desperately need a new pair. I have literally walked MILES in them already. But it’s crazy how hard it is to find simple black flats that have the right cut. Living on the east coast, I’ve learned to dress and be prepared for a full day out. You never know where you’ll end up or how much walking you’ll be doing! I wore this simple ensemble to prance around City Hall in Philadelphia over the weekend. This place could easily be mistaken for Europe huh? The architecture is absolutely stunning! It’s one of my favorite spots in Philly. Every time I walk by I just stop and stare… dreaming of Paris of course! But the best part of this evening? My friends and I went out dancing and ended up walking home late at night (not smart considering we were in a pretty dangerous area…imagine, 4 girls…bloggers…desperately trying to get back to Center City alive) and some dude said we looked like “Sex and the City, but in COMPTON!” so priceless! I’ll take that as a compliment…

    I would take that as a compliment too 🙂 As long as you had a great time…you look beautiful as always Natalie! That shade of blue is one of my favorites & the back of your top is fab! ❤

    Holy moly, you look fabulous! This look is one of the prettiest I’ve seen lately, the blue looks so good on you! Also love the sheer shirt with golden details and minimalism of the black flats.

    And indeed, this place could’ve easily been Antwerp or Paris or whatever European city. I didn’t know the USA had places that looked “ancient” 🙂

    Wow! I’ve been looking for a long skirt like yours and I never found anyone. I guess when I finally go shopping on sales maybe, but now I prefer say to you that you have such an amazing skirt and such an awesome t-shirt. I’m in love with the details on the back, so original.

    P.S: Sorry for my bad english, btw.

    I definitely need to pick up a few more airy pieces as well to brave through the sweltering heat – I’m honestly dying in Canada with the weather rising up to 46 degrees celsius!

    Love your electric blue pleated maxi!You paired it perfectly with the sheer black top 🙂
