currently obsessing over...short, frilly skirts

Inspired by a couple of my favorite bloggers…
my latest obsession has become
short, frilly skirts.
Formerly…I had a career in banking…
so I was accustomed to wearing skirts.
Typically…knee-length accompanied by a matching blazer.
 (Yawn…)
Don’t doubt that I tried to mix it up as often as possible
 with a brightly-colored cardigan and camisole…
much to my boss’ dismay.

Til now…I had not found a suitable, comfortable option
that would work within my new lifestyle…
until now!!
Along with the denim mini seen (here)…
My latest purchases have been short, frilly, floral skirts…
(even though it’s almost winter?!)
That I pair with layered tights (for extra warmth)…
wooly sweaters…comfy (snow-friendly) boots…
and I feel at ease…warm…yet chic!

Sweater vest…Forever 21
Turtleneck sweater…Kohls
Belt…The Limited
Skirt…Charlotte Russe
Tights…Apt.9 (Kohls)
Boots…Curations (HSN)
Bag…Kathy Van Zeeland
Jewelry…XOXO watch, Modcloth earrings,
Daisy Fuentes? (Kohls) bracelet, Target ring



(these earrings from Modcloth are an OCD moment as well)
