a little sun, a little sparkle



This thrifted J Crew skirt is a find that I was absolutely thrilled about.  I bought it back in the summer but knew it would be a great fall and winter piece.  The metallic tweed is pretty subtle (obviously the sun helps play up the sparkle just a bit).  Speaking of the sun, I am a sunshine kind of girl.  I can handle cold... let it be 20 degrees, I don't care. But everything is just better when the sun is shining. Including this skirt. :)

  6. I love this outfit - the skirt and boots are such a cool combo! I'm a sunshine girl myself, so winter is a bit hard for me with no sunshine for 5 weeks...Thank God for Christmas, it's a much needed break and something to look forward to in the wintertime.

  25. I am right there with you. As long as it's sunny, I'm a happy and upbeat person. There could be a blizzard (hypothetically of course) and be sunny at the same time and I'll be one happy gall. Perhaps that's why I'd never be able to survive in a country like England.

    Ha ha sorry for the rant, what I really wanted to say is you look rocking in this outfit. The skirt is absolutely perfect on you, one of my favorites by far!
