    Pencil skirt and cardigan from Banana Republic, belt from LOFT, lace camisole from Old Navy, and nude peep-toe pumps from Marc Fisher. I saw Trish’s adorable belt in-store a while back, and am kickin myself now for not getting it! It really ties her Spring outfit together : )

    I really appreciate each and every one of you who took the time to enter. It is so nice to actually see readers and your outfits, as opposed to just me babbling about my mundane AT/BR wardrobe. Choosing a “favorite” was so hard – I enlisted the help of AlterationsNeeded and several of my friends!

    And the winner is…

    Natalie from Vanilla Lavender Delights! Congrats! 

    I liked that Natalie had an outfit planned from head to toe, with bright purse and Spring-y trench. She also wore a number of brands that I currently don’t own, which was interesting to see. We also really liked Catherine N. and PetiteXXS – who are each rocking their own versions of the crisp white blouse, waist belt, and A-lined skirt – and JetSetMeg. What do you guys think…which outfits are your faves?
