Do you remember the game Pretty Pretty Princess? A game where the goal was to collect plastic jewels and ultimately the plastic crown to be named princess of plastic? I LIVED for that game. Once I won, I felt like princess for the entire day, wearing my shiny crown and clip on earrings until bedtime. There was nothing better than that feeling that in some sense you were actually princess…even if it came from winning a board game. It all made sense in my five year old mind. 

As a grown up, re-creating that memory comes simply from wearing amazing clothing that makes you feel like a princess.

Take this skirt for example. The moment I tried it on, as absolutely cheesy as it sounds, I was 5 again and had just won a battle round of Pretty Pretty Princess winning the ultimate honors. 

This skirt from Chicwish is beyond gorgeous. I love the floaty fabric and the pretty nude color that goes with just about  anything. I love that I now own something that I can throw on whenever I need a dash of that 5 year old princess magic…and you better believe I will be wearing this any chance I get.

To compliment a more sophisticated style, I decided to forgo the plastic earrings and crown and don some polka dots (a little 5 year old me coming through), a faux leather jacket and of course a bright statement necklace. 

I have to say, Chicwish is one of my latest online shopping obsessions. I browse the site daily as they are always getting new pieces in! They have unique items at great prices and such pretty pieces. Check them out…I’m obsessed.
