My Style Challenge: Improved Rewear

Ahh, the hardest part of my style challenge - rewearing clothing in new and improved ways! I last rocked this skirt and purse all "Spanish Harlem" - fedora and big hoops! I did an OK just styling before, but I think this look is a little more risky - I certainly played more with color instead of staying safe with a white top!

I was surprised to find I owned a top that almost matched the teal birds in this fablush skirt! I immediately knew I had to put them together for a bright, festive look. I got a little worried that I was too matchy though, so I threw on my indigo cardigan for a dose of color randomness.
I'm wearing: Teal top from Bluefly, Odille skirt from Anthropologie, cardigan from YesStyle, Patricia Field purse (rememeber when it was in the Devil Wears Prada??), Juicy Couture sunnies, shoes courtesy of Banana Republic. Jewelry includes: tourquoise earrings from my mom, necklace from Express, bangle courtesy of South Moon Under and ring from a little shop in El Paso, TX!
Here's a nice shot of me trying not to fall (I prevailed!). Remember kids, pouting whilst standing is no easy task!!
I was really happy with this look, what do you think of it?? Do you like this one better than my first outfit? And can you believe how different my hair is??
