Flash of Metallic


Skirt - American Apparel, Sweater - Urban Outfitters, Belt - vintage from CALICO, Sandals - Coach, Bag - Mango, Bracelet - vintage

A midi skirt with a little sweater . . . basically my go-to look for anytime/anywhere. I always have the urge to twist and turn in skirts like this, and even more so when they shimmer in the light. So puuuuuuuuuuuuuuurty. Another thing that I think is purty? My vintage leopard belt from CALICO. I don't know what I would do without this thing. It adds a little feisty-ness to all my skirts and dresses. Me likey.

Time to get back to getting my life organized and ready for my big move to Philadelphia. My flight leaves Friday afternoon and all I'm bringing with me right now is everything that can fit into two large suitcases and a carry-on. The rest will have to make it to me via snail mail or whenever family visits. Maybe I should get one of those storage bags that you can suck the air out of to make more space? Because I have A LOT of clothes. This is hard.

Anyways, I am so happy that I got to see all of my greatest friends that I have made through blogging this past weekend (pictures to come). It was way too much fun (and I had a little too much sake). Lots of gaggles and giggles for sure. Though I am going to miss them all when I leave for the east coast, I am even more excited to make new friends in Philly. It's going to be one big adventure :) Looking forward to seeing more people I love this week before I leave. So much to do, yet so little time!

LOVE the skirt.

Samara said...

I definitely need to get myself a skinny leopard print belt, because you're so right -- it adds a little feisty-ness to any skirt or dress. A little leopard goes a long way, for sure.

LOVELOVE..and LOVE. The AA skirt looks gorgeous on you girl! and the color is aamazing. i seriously have been wanting this skirt too!! And omg, saw the same UO sweater before and really wanted it too (we have similar taste, which means we'll have lots of fun shopping..when i hope to visit you one day in Philly!) :).
Newhoo, the blooger meetup sounded fun! Hope you're having a great week girl! And ps. when you said "so little time," reminded me of the mary-kate and ashley olsen tv show they had a while back. loved them in it :P.

<3, Kathleen.

Tiffany said...

Wow I'm so excited for you to get to experience living in Philly (a place I used to call home) and the east coast. Its amazing how different that side of the country is from sunny socal :) Best of luck!!
-Tiffany

p.s. As for packing with space bags, they don't work very well. I tried packing with them for a trip & ended up not using them at all. They suck all the air out but then your left with a solid (but thin) block that refuses to bend in your suitcase. Hope that helps :)
