OOTD // A Spring in My Step...and Skirt!


Necklace: Debs


Like how my skirt matches the bedspread? It was blustery and freezing cold outside, so before I ventured out, I tried taking some indoor shots. The lighting in my parents room was so soft and pretty, and I'm pleased with how they turned out. However, I decided I might as well suit up and shoot a few self-timed photos outside.

Bracelet: Philippines

Outfit Details:   Skirt: thrifted + DIY   Top: Rue 21   Jacket: Debs   Tights: Rue 21   Wedges: (gift) Payless

 This skirt started off twice the size it is now - both waist-wise and length-wise! 
I remember standing at the skirt rack at the thrift store, staring at this one-of-a-kind, vintage-inspired floral print. It had so much potential, and for only $2, I knew I had to give it a chance. Keep in mind, I bought this skirt before my shopping ban, just so you know! I have not cheated (yet). Haha, so when I showed it to my mom, she just clucked her tongue and whipped out the scissors. 

I love that woman.



Right now, my family and I are updating our phone plan, and let me tell you, it's one stressful event! We've been with Verizon for so long, and while the service is great, you sure do pay for it. We almost went to one of those Walmart plans, but dad calculated how much it would save us, and the difference wasn't that much. So we decided to stick with Verizon. Now we've spent the last few days just researching, reviewing, and debating over which phones to try. I've had a very basic phone the past two years, and while it's served me well, I'm ready to join the smart phone world!

I've decided on the Droid Bionic, which seemed to receive a lot of positive reviews. I'm just worried if it'll last the whole 2 years that we'll be with Verizon. Anyone own this phone? If so, please let me know if you like it (or not) and why!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.



PS: What do you think of my blog's new look? I updated it last night, and personally, I really prefer this one. Reflects my favorite print: vintage florals!

You look so adorable, and so are you! xx

Tonya said...

Oooo definitely in love with your skirt! Probably because I'm kind of obsessed with floral print :) ha I always love remaking things from thrift stores. I bought a maxi dress today that was pretty hideous when I first had it. But I took off the sleeves and made it knee length and now I'm in LOVE with it :) So much fun!

Love your skirt and the color of your tights! great look! xoxo

ahaha WOW that write up about the verizon phone plan could have been coming from me its soooo exactly similar to my family! i want a smart phone too but i would have to shell out $200 and i'd rather get a 50 mm lens lol. oh but we didn't consider walmart we considered sprint t mobile or something, i didnt pay too much attention! and thanks for your sweet comment as always!! i see you wore a denim jacket too!! :) i like your skirt, its soo fun :)

Josie said...

I love your shoes and that necklace!!! Good luck with the phone plan! Depending on your guys employers you might be able to ask for a discount on your monthly plan!

Well... said...

Haha, and here I thought I was one of the few without a smart phone. Eek, yeah, they're pretty expensive. The only reason I'm able to get one is we get a reduced price since we're signing up for the 2 year contract.
And no problem, you have fabulous style. Denim is a classic, isn't it? Haha, thanks for the comment!

The pattern on that skirt is so pretty, and I love the bracelet as well!
