Statement skirt


Urg, I didn’t notice the light bubble on the pictures until it was too late. Oh well. Moving on. Don’t you love when you buy a piece only to find out that it goes with just about everything in your closet? You can’t know it until you’ve had it a while, but once you realize it, it’s a very happy surprise. That’s how I feel about this skirt.

I’ve been wearing it for a couple of months now in so many different ways, and I keep forgetting to photograph its versatility! I love this skirt because it has amazing structure that is totally frilling because it can be dressed up or down. I also love the print. It’s both fun and classic, and it’s not too bold to mix with various patterns and fabrics.

Plus, it’s totally flattering. I bought this skirt online so I was really taking a chance, and it worked! I’m anticipating wearing and loving this skirt for many seasons to come!

It’s the holiday season


“It’s the holiday season!” (That song is stuck in my head!) It’s still pretty warm outside, but at least it’s December now. I’ve been totally getting into the holiday spirit.

I’ve been waking up extra early so I can listen to Christmas hymns and enjoy the lights on our little tree while I ponder the true meaning of Christmas.

I’ve been wrapping Christmas presents and watching Hallmark Christmas movies and drinking hot tea and hot chocolate.

And of course, I’ve been dressing for the season. I’m especially loving my plaid headband and this French lady sweater.
