Getting dresses this morning was one of those I-shaved-my-legs-so-I-should-show-them... but-I-want-to-wear-pants... but-I-have-not-worn-a-skirt-in-a-while... kind of mornings. Ever experience it? The inner battle between your efforts to be socially acceptable and your own desire to wear harem pants. It's a doozy!

Anyway, I got this skirt on Cyber Monday because I had been eyeing it for a few weeks and thought, "Hey! Perfect timing!" So far, it has been a challenge to style. I know, I know, there are thousands of Pins directly related to "striped skirt + denim shirt + brown boots." However, that's not what I wanted. Besides, boots and longer skirts don't do well with my pint-sized bod. It's all about proportions. 

I would like to point out this blazer, as it is the most well-fitting blazer I have ever tried on. I had Momsies take up the sleeves a tad, but everything else was perfect! As a human built with tiny people curves, I usually have issues with clothing being too boxy. This glorious piece hugs at the right spots and makes me feel a little sassy. Needless to say, it's pretty perfect!

PS: I'm wearing a headband today in honor of the last ever episode of Gossip Girl airing this week. xoxo :)


  1. Today I'm going to have an I-didn't-shave-my-legs-but-I'm-going-to-wear-a-skirt-anyway-because-no-one-gets-close-enough-to-notice day. (Run-on 21-word hyphenate?)

    Also, now that Gossip Girl is over, and the pressure is off, I think I can take my winter break to catch up on the last 4 seasons.

  2. Outfit is no doubt a perfect stylish wear, but what your smile is simply bewitching..!
