Hooray for Friday!!

I must admit, I’m not normally the “TGIF” type person, but this week? Totally!

Anyway, I wore this today:

Cardigan: Target (little girls’ section. I bought my daughter a matching one! This is a 10/12, their clothing seems to run quite large!)
Skirt: Anthropologie, but I bought secondhand
Shoes: Strassed Manolos I did earlier this year

And then I came home to a package! Last week a company, Corilynn was having a sale. I couldn’t resist. This skirt CALLED my name! The length, the fact that the size I ordered is my waist measurements exactly. It was magic. And then it arrived:

The anchors just make my day!! I’m super excited to style this skirt, soooo many possibilities!

Here’s a close up of the fabric, it has a really neat underlying print that wasn’t noticeable on the website:

So very very pleased! I especially live the length, as I’m sure y’all realize, I tend to gravitate towards a skirt/dress that covers my knees. This is a personal preference for me, I just feel since I have a son in high school (and a rapidly growing up daughter!), I should set a good example! It makes me sad to see these young girls wearing all these skimpy clothes, when a more classic dress would be so much more flattering! Plus I mean, really, some things should be kept, ahem, private. There is just too much skin and provocative temptations in our society!!

Okay, off my soapbox. I have cupcakes to make tonight and I should probably get cracking. First order of 2014! Luckily it’s a small one, as January/February is so crazy at my job (tax season), adding big events/orders isn’t smart. Why stress myself out?

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Until next time,

Jules
