Confetti Skirt and Split-back Sweater

I found this skirt while I ventured out thrift shopping for furniture this past weekend with my mom.  I love the confetti-esque faux leather pieces that flutter in the wind.  I also made out with a large framed mirror for my powder room that I'll likely end up restaining during a future DIY project.  I ended up pairing the skirt with a mint green open-backed sweater in a color combination that was reminiscent of this outfit post from a little bit ago.  This time around I swapped out the ivory leather tank for an ivory (p)leather skirt and kept the outfit more casual with some low wedges. 


Mint green split-back sweater: Club Monaco 'Jocelyn' sweater.  Ivory faux-leather confetti skirt: Zara.  Mirrored wedges: Christian Louboutin.  Handbag: J.Crew Edie in dusty rose.  Rings: from random places.  Necklace: Anthropologie 'Ines' necklace.


  1. I love your sense of style - it's very inspiring. Also inspiring is your and Carolyn's ability to balance your life and career and make it look so effortless! I am going through a rough patch in my medical training right now, so it's nice to see that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Cheers to having it all!

    1. Hi! Thanks for the sweet words! There were definitely days when I wondered why I didn't have an "easier" career. I think it's only natural to get frustrated when you're studying for 10+ hours a day and working overnight calls. I would by no means call my life effortless, as balancing life and career is no cake walk. But hang in there! It's such a gratifying, challenging field in the end!
