This background is everything. Anyone remember that show called Lipstick Jungle? Based on a Candice Bushnell novel, it had it all - an all-star cast, fabulous clothes, great story line, set in NYC with fabulous shots of scenery...ah, how sad I was when it was cancelled after only a season or two. Anyhoo...this background immediately made me think "concrete jungle." I love how almost anything looks soft and feminine against the rough edges and neutral color. And while there are plenty of lush green spaces and parks in Charlotte, some of these rough walls make for a great backdrop.

This skirt is something a little outside of my normal comfort zone, being a little longer and bright yellow. But I love the way it came together with a pineapple tee and silver heels...I can't wait to pair it with a tank and sandals later in the summer. What would you pair with it?
