Neglected

For some reason, I’ve been really neglecting my skirts this winter (you can just tell by how wrinkled this skirt is.) Since January, I’ve only had four skirt outfits. I guess I just got bored with skirts. They’re more difficult to style than dresses, especially in the winter – you have to figure out what top to go with it, what tights, what kind of shoes, belt or no belt… I spent nearly half an hour trying on different tights and sweaters before settling with these, but I wasn’t happy with the result. The tights are completely lazy, and the neckline of this sweater, I realize, does not look good on a broad-shouldered person like me. I need something more boat-necked than this. Oh well. The truth is that I just wanted to show off my new heeled oxfords. I know, I know, buying new things is not the best way to break out of a style rut, but when I saw these, I couldn’t pass them up. Besides, they’re real leather, which means they’re super soft and comfy, so expect to see them a lot more on the blog in the foreseeable future.

    I’m just really over tights right now. I’m ready for spring to warm up. I like wearing skirts without tights more than I do with them. It just feels repetitive after a while. This is adorable! I wore navy tights with oxfords not too long ago, too.

    I actually really love skirts, but I’m definitely over bundling up with tights! Your shoes are so adorable!

    I don’t wear skirts that much in the winter because of how cold it is!! But that is definitely a pretty one, and I love the shoes, too!
