Out of this Galaxy

It's Marisa from Shades of Monet Chronicles here.  Oh where do I begin...this skirt, yes this skirt.  Let me just tell you that this galaxy skirt made my heart skip one ginormous beat when I first saw Jessica of Midwest Muse don it so dashingly on her blog.  It's just one of those pieces that is eye catching-ly, out of this galaxy...ok ok, pun intended.  Naturally I was pleased as punch when I saw Jessica put the piece up for swaps.

She styled it up pretty darn awesome-sauce if you ask me - the bow, the red shoes - yes, the whole darn ensemble had me from hello - so much that I pinned it on my Pinterest board right away.  Now how in the world could I ever do this little beauty justice like she so perfectly did?

I kind of adored how the print & colors lent themselves so perfectly to the season.  As in true fall fashion, the weather was rainy and chilly, so layers were the way to go.  A blazer with structured shoulders and velvety green shoes dressed it up a tad - but the striped t-shirt, floral crown & mustard tights made it a little more playful and a lot more comfortable for me to wear out.

Thanks so much for reading along with me here on this Monday morning.  See you around soon!

Love Bunches,

  3. This skirt is SO amazing, seriously one of the most gorgeous pieces ever. I love the way you styled it with the orange tights and blazer. So cute!

  4. Good job remixing that skirt. I really like it with the mustard leggings. I've never been a fan of skirts with the uneven length hem- but I really like this one!

  5. I love how you styled this! It's so perfect with those tights.

  6. Oh darling, you look beautiful! Dreamy, even! :)

  7. That skirt is phenomenal! Two trends in one: galaxy and high low skirt. Love the mustard tights too!

  8. This skirt looks amazing on you! I, like Katherine, peaked at this post before too and was so excited to see it with these tights. This will be such a fun one to see how a few of the bloggers style it!

  9. I love how you styled it, so perfectly you!

  10. Absolutely stunning photographs! Just adore the colors.

  11. It's amazing how many colors you can pull out of this skirt, you styled it so well! I am LOVING seeing even just two ladies versions and its making me excited about so many future remixes!

  12. You look so darling. I love how different (yet great) it looks on you two- such fun, distinct styles shining through. The blazer and colored tights though, give it such a different vibe.

    So fun to have our first swapped item up!

    PS Did you mean to have everything capitalized? (if so, cool- just checking!) :)

    1. I was wondering that too. Some of the bios are like that...

  13. This outfit is cool and a half!! That skirt: OH MY! Remixing Heaven.

    I hope you have a good week, must be so exciting to prepare for your sister's wedding :)

  17. "oh of this galaxy" oh how I love silly puns! AAh this skirt is amazing and I'm so excited to get it next... although gee I must say a bit nervous after how stunning you two look! I absolutely love how you made two completely separate, super cute, both very "you" looks! & it kind of looks like the space dust is going to fly off in that shot of the skirt and your tights- super cool!

  18. oh my gosh! you girls both look so cute.
