Oh, you rule breaker







Top:  LOFT, gifted
Sweater:  Merona
Skirt:  Preferred Elements (poss. vintage?), thrifted
Tights & Shoes & Belt:  Target

This skirt screams "Summer!" to me, but I couldn't wait that long to wear it.  I pondered in my closet "what to do... what to do ... Oh!  I'll do that thing I'm not supposed to do.  Wear navy and black together!"  Has anyone else heard of that fashion 'rule'?  Navy and black aren't supposed to go together?  ...Or, maybe it's you're not supposed to wear black shoes when you wear navy.  I dunno.  Either way, consider me a rule breaker.  Navy and black!  Summer skirts in winter!  My goodness!

Also, is anyone else tired of seeing that orange hat in the background?  I know I am.  Since this spot has unofficially become our picture-taking place, I'm thinking of sprucing it up a bit.  It has all my fiber and yarn for my business and knitting supplies and hats and scarves and more hats and library books, etc.  I'm thinking a little pick-me-up is in order for this corner of our house.

  1. Cute skirt! I think navy and blue work together, actually, and you prove that here :)

    You should spruce up your little photography corner! That would be fun!

  2. Haha! I totally didn't even notice the hat until your pointed it out. But now I'll notice it once it's gone for sure. I will probably even miss it... Ha! LOVE that polka dot skirt! Love it to the moon and back, for reals!

  3. i've heard it, but it's one of my fave combos. so, obviously, i ignore it. today, for example. totally ignoring it.

    love the polka dots! the background has never bothered me, but i bet you'll feel better if you spruce it up a little! (sorry, orange hat!)
