Cat & a Cardigan

I've gotten some flak for wearing this skirt before, and because of that, I haven't worn it in a long time. Imagine my surprise this morning when I reluctantly put it on and felt so good wearing it! I didn't feel self-conscious in the slightest running my errands. I think that's key-- wear what you love. Milton agrees.
Necklace: Forever 21
T-shirt, cardigan, skirt: Gap

T-straps: Seychelles
Happy Friday, everyone!

Also, if you have any semi-urgent questions for me, use Formspring so I can get back to you quickly and efficiently. Sometimes questions get lost in the comments and I feel bad when I discover it days later. Peace out.


  1. Flak for THAT skirt? It's lovely ... I don't suppose Gap still has it? I always have an eye out for that length, or only slightly shorter, since it somehow manages to highlight only the *ahem* highlightable portions of my legs, LOL.

  2. I love the sea foam green socks with those t-straps! really cute look!

  3. @Nutmeg, unfortunately the skirt is from years ago. I see these types of skirts all the time on Etsy though!

  4. Love the skirt! It's good to ear things when you love them - they always feel right then.

    Well have a good weekend m'dear!

  5. I absolutely love this look. Why would anyone give you guff over this skirt? It's totally gorgeous and very on trend right now!(not that it matters)

    i'm so glad you commented on my tumblr because I got to find a lovely new blog!

  6. @kiddotrue and Nutmeg -I think that because I have a large bottom and wide hips, high-waisted pieces throw people off. I for one love it!

  7. why in the world would anyone give you trouble over your skirt?? it's beautiful! ps send me your kitty.

  8. Oh! I love your shoes. Wonderful Photos!:)

  10. I love this skirt, although I have a similar kind of issue wearing mid cuff length skirts. I think they make my legs look weird. :)

    You look amazing btw, the colours are superb against your skin. :)

    I am your newest bloglovin follower. :)

  12. You look like a sexy librarian that I would totally want to hang out with over a snarky books discussion.

  13. Thanks, everyone!
    @Elaine- as long as I'm not skanky Sandy, I'm cool with that! (People used to say I looked like Stockard Channing. I don't know how to feel about that.)
    @Meghan- Yes, yes, and yes!

  14. I agree with everyone - the skirt is great. Being high-waisted, it has the potential to throw off your proportions a little, but the longer cardi balances everything nicely!

    I'm a fan of the brown shirt/necklace combo as well.

  15. not all of us can wear miniskirts all the time! it looks great on you!
