What I wore; oh deer!

the details
sweater - c/o Glamour Kills
detachable collar - Danielle's blog sale
skirt - forever 21
tights - target

Okay, before anyone thinks I still have my tree up, these pictures are from right before Christmas. Decorations have been down for a little while now, I just kept forgetting to post this!

It was love at first sight with this sweater! I wasn't sure how I could wear it with anything other than jeans, which to me seems like the obvious choice with a pullover sweater but that isn't the route I wanted to go. I found that a sweater that fits comfortably (not tight) is great to wear with a short skirt because it makes the otherwise too short skirt feel much more wearable. I never know what to wear with short skirts without feeling exposed. Now I need more sweaters that fit just like this to wear with skirts!!

Well, I have to get back to work! I'm going to kick my to-do list's butt today. Hope you have a fabulous Thursday!
xoxo

  22. Love the outfit!!! So cute! I have a question though, is that a Deborah Lippman nail polish? Please explain how you got the glitter to um..disperse..so perfectly!? I have a couple of chunky glitters, but everytime I try to put them on, they don't look as good!

  28. Thank you guys so so much!! :D

    Sarah, no, it's not Deborah Lippman, I just can't justify the price! It's actually Ulta brand. It's my favorite polish ever. It applies pretty evenly by itself.

    Teddi, the glitter is Ulta Brand and the purple is essie! :)
