Lauren Blair in Mary Blair: Mother and Child Jenny Skirt

Oh my goodness!  I am SO excited to FINALLY be sharing this piece of clothing/artwork with y'all!  I've had this skirt for like, a month, but things got so busy I couldn't get it photographed etc.  This skirt and the Commuters skirt were the two Mary Blair pieces from Pinup Girl Clothing that I absolutely had to have!  I love novelty prints and the whole Mary Blair line is full of great ones.  But what I loved about the Commuters and this one, Mother and Child, was how different they were compared to any novelty print that I already own as well as most ones that I have seen out there in the world.  While I rock all kinds of very loud novelty prints and will likely always do so, I've been growing an appreciation for the simplicity of a novelty print like this one.  The colors are bold, so it's still a super fun skirt skirt, but you kind of have to look twice to be able to see what the print is always about.  So much of my personal life has become a mantra of "less is more" in 2015, and to some extent it's been bleeding into my clothing choices as well!

I decided that my first styling of this outfit had to be a super sunny one.  The pink and blue in this is such a rich tone, and the white goes so perfectly with it.  Instead of doing more white, or black, I decided to add another color to the mix and just make everything pop more than it already does.  I opted to do a bright but slightly mustard yellow for the complimentary top and shoes.
