Hey guys. We're friends, right? So you're totally going to look past the fact these photos aren't actually in focus...right?! Thanks. I appreciate that. It was cold. That's kind of a lame excuse but it was much colder than it looks in these photos and I was rushing. I look back at outfit posts from a few years back and I really have no idea how I did it. So many posts in the snow. My body this year has basically just given up on cold weather. I'm freezing in a matter of seconds. The only thing that keeps me going in hot drinks. I now, more than ever, understand why people retire to Florida. Although, if it's this bad for me at twenty five I don't think I'll make it to retirement age in this cold weather. I day dream of being in the desert constantly. I remember in grade school they taught us the difference between 'desert' and 'dessert' is that you'd want two pieces of dessert, so two of the letter 's', and only one desert so one 's'. But right now I'd trade all the dessert in the world to live in the desert.

Enough complaining about the weather though, lets talk about this skirt! It's the same design as this dress, which I wore in this post, except in skirt form! Being able to buy something I love in another form is even more exciting than being able to buy something in another color which is something I looove doing. This is such an easy piece to style too since it's black and white. I look forward to wearing it often. Everything I've tried from Modcloth's signature line has been awesome so far.

As I was scrolling through old outfit posts real quickly, trying to find a link, I found this post from my birthday last year. My style changes fairly rapidly and that's what is so interesting about documenting it but finding myself rocking two totally different but super similar outfits is funny. Basically I just wanted to say that outfit from summer is super cute, this one is super cute and I wish everything in my closet could be black and white... at least for now. ;)

Hope you're having a lovely, warm week!
xoxo

  2. I love this! Especially with your hair being so colorful, the subdued outfit is a nice contrast (though it's actually not at all subdued with all the patterns!)

    The cold has been getting to me the past few years as well. I've actually said that exact thing about understanding why people retire to Florida! My mental shift occurred when I went to visit my friend in Ft Lauderdale and the 100+ degree temperatures didn't feel too hot. I'm also not diggin' having to wear all these layers anymore. Just a skirt and tshirt for me, please!

    1. I know, wearing multiple pairs of pants when I leave the house just so I don't freeze is getting real old real fast.

  5. I think of that little story EVERYTIME I spell dessert or desert! I remember when I learned it I thought "Hmm, I think I'd rather have two trips to the desert instead of two desserts..." I can't get over how cute those tights are!

    1. It's funny how many of those little sayings I apparently still use to spell things!

  6. In my last post I said almost the same thing about snow birds! Retiring to Florida sounds downright amazing right now. It seems that I feel this more and more as I get older, which kind of makes me sad, but also mostly makes me want to hit the road to a much warmer climate! :)

    1. Hah! Glad to know I'm not the other one. I seriously don't know how people deal with this weather forever.

  7. Black and white are so classic together, and definitely one of my favorite combinations, especially when stripes are involved. Needless to say, I'm in love with this outfit (and your hair!). Now off to find those tights!

  8. Every time I see something black and white I now think of you! Love it and I guess I can forgive for the out of focus pictures... only just, though. To be fair if I'd have been trying to take pictures in the cold I wouldn't have even been standing, I'd have been a ball of blankets on the floor! - Sam

  10. i learned desert by saying "There is only one snake in the desert" which makes NO sense but I still remember it to this day!

    1. Does this mean there are two snakes in my dessert...?

      That is such a weird way to remember that.

  11. I don't know how people live in cold weather! I did a trip around Europe this Winter and froze my butt off. And it was a MILD winter. yikes! I live on the Tropic of Capricorn in Australia so it's always hot. I used to hate it but I really appreciate it now haha!

    I love that skirt! But I really need to buy less black clothing, it's getting out of hand!

    1. Dude, right? They're my FAVORITE... hence why I wear them so darn much.

      Golden Ponies makes a similar pair.

  13. I adore your style! The ability to fully put a unique outfit together is becoming a dying trade, and your tattoos peeking out are awesome!
