Grounding A Ball Skirt

I still love wearing my ball skirt I got from Anthropologie during the holidays.
I knew when I bought it
I would have fun styling it different untraditional ways.
For our date night in Laguna
I wanted to ground the skirt
taking it from a formal look 
to a casual date night feel.

I reached for my beloved denim shirt
loads of turquoise
to really ground the look
my army green anorak.
I finished it off with my new
Alpaca fedora
I brought back from my trip to Napa

skirt-Anthropologie, anorak-J Crew, shirt-Juxtaposition,
 hat-from Montecristi Panama hats-online here,  jewelry-Tamera Beardsley design

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

    You look lovely.

  6. This is one amazing look! I bet every head turned and asked "Who is that movie star?" when you walked in! Striking in every good way!

  7. Lovely setting for your ball skirt, which you styled so well, the blues are so good on you. Your new fedora certainly is a stunner, perfect on you. Thank you for the photo tip, I have now finally gotten the hang of it. Have a good week, my dear. x

  8. Stunning! Seriously, everything about this ensemble, setting, and detail is stunning. I love how you took this 'Ball skirt' and grounded it. In fact, I think I prefer it grounded. I agree, I bet every head turns and wonders who the movie star is that just entered. I can't believe how versatile you are making that anorak. I was wondering what the other hat was that you purchased, great find, it looks amazing on you. I'm heading to the website right now. Tell Jeff, he is becoming quite the photographer.

  9. You look so beautiful! Love that you are so glamourous and take such pleasure in styling. It's infectious. Thanks for sharing. :)

  10. Beautiful mix of color. patterns and texture….gorgeous!

  11. The colors and the styling are so much fun! Love this, Tamera!

  12. As always you look great. My friend Lucy and I were chatting yesterday about how much we love your blog! x

  13. Your ball skirt is divine; I love the length and the abundance of glorious fabric. I'm always inspired by the unique compositions that you create, enhanced by jewelry of your own design. It's always a pleasure to visit you and your enchanting site.

  14. I knew you would do something fabulously "Tamera" with that alpaca wool hat from Montecristi Panama Hats! I love it on you and it looks so chic with your ball gown. Well done! I bet Carolina and Mercedes from the hat shop are thrilled!

  15. You were the one who caught my eye over at Patti's!!! Wow, what a beautiful, beautiful outfit you have created- you look sensational!!x

  16. I totally love all of the color and pattern in this outfit!!

  17. Love, love, love this! Floral skirt, denim shirt and turquoise, oh my! :)
