Well,  this is certainly my favorite outfit of the year so far. I love any excuse to get dressed up, so as soon as I got this skirt in the mail, I was ecstatic! Whether you have an upcoming wedding to attend or are headed to a more formal event, this skirt is for you. Or if you have amazing Valentine's Day plans, the blush and white stripes are just perfect for the occasion (we're just two weeks away!).

I am a huge fan of Carolina Herrera (the person and the label). Her stunning ball skirts paired with simple white blouses and tops are chic, sophisticated and timeless. I mean seriously, look at this photo... amazing. However, my budget and lifestyle don't necessarily call for pricey ball skirts. But, this skirt is inexpensive for the type of garment and the quality, so I definitely consider it a win! It also somewhat reminds me of this gorgeous yellow skirt worn by Jackie O.

You can't see clearly in the photos, but part of the reason this skirt is so stunning (especially in person) is because the white stripes are textured. You can see this more clearly in the photo of the black version of this skirt, here. The texture totally elevates the skirt even more for a luxe, elegant look! I actually bought this without a particular event in mind. This is unlike me because I really only ever shop for a dressier outfit if I have a clear occasion in mind. However, to me, this skirt is just too gorgeous to pass up!

This skirt is so beautiful! I don't think I could pull it off as a maxi, but if they made a short version it'd be IN MY CART
