Is this blue skirt from August Wrinkle not amazing or what? I'll admit it was tough to style it for the cold that remains in the air - I just want to bare my legs and say "Screw it!" to Mother Nature. But then I remember I'm supposed to be showing you how to dress for this chill and decided to cooperate. So fleece tights and leather jacket it is. Although even then, the jacket managed to wriggle itself off.
So Look 2 shows a simple way to make a springy skirt work for this odd, cool weather. Add some punchy florals and black accents to perfectly balance out your hot-weather look!
Haha, also, may I just point out that I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought myself something from the Prabal Gurung collection at Target? This was the last blouse left on the rack and it was a Small - my heart plummeted when I saw that, but I figured I might as well try it on anyway. And I'm so glad I did! It fits perfectly. It was $28 something with tax, which is the most I've ever spent on a single piece of clothing (note: I said clothing, not shoes), and it was worth the splurge! The graphic floral print and amazing black trim make me so excited to wear this into spring and summer.
I don't wear these heels enough; probably because they're just a tad on the fancy side. They're the perfect heel too - high enough to add class to any outfit, but with a chunky heel so they're comfortable. Although I have to refrain from wearing them to school, since I have PE classes. Thus, I am rendered back to my usual 5'5" height. Which isn't too bad, but still, some tall people don't grasp that this means I have a shorter stride than them...
"You walk like my dad!"
"Um, what? How does your dad walk?"
"Really fast." I glanced up at CG. "How tall are you anyway?"
"About 6'2", why?"
*internally swooning* "Well that would explain it. Not all of us have long legs, you know!"
"Well, move those stubby legs," he teased.
At that moment, we reached the door we were both heading towards, and he opened it for me - so I decided to forgive him for that remark.
