Skating Skirt and Sketchbook Swirls




Sweater ($4)--thrifted J.Crew
Scarf ($2)--China
Skirt ($8)--Wet Seal
Socks ($2)--grocery store
Boots ($10)--grocery store

I felt like a figure skater when I braved the cold to take photos. This black skirt is such a versatile staple—I usually wear it for orchestra concerts but that chilly winter day I thought it was a fun addition to this trendy look. I even wore socks under my combat boots to keep my toes warm haha. The best deal in this ensemble was probably my thrifted sweater. If I’m not mistaken, J.Crew is a pretty pricey brand and I scored this comfy sweater for only $4! I think I’m addicted to deals. But you know what they say: I’m not a shopaholic, I’m just a clothes collector. I love it!
I even pulled out the old dusty sketchbook over winter break to play around with a few designs. Let me know what you think!

XOXO,

Lily

  1. Looking sunny and bright even in these snowy images. Very nice pictures and lovely outfit! I commend you on your very nice sketchbook images. They are every bit as stylish as your own personal style. Of those pictures, I love the pink gown and the final look with the red dress and bowtie handbag.

    Also, thanks for showcasing one of my comments! :)

  14. Happy New Year, you sweet Lily! I hope you have a great 2013 and that you continue to inspire us with your very colorful and happy outfits!

    I like your idea of being called a 'clothes collector', that's definitely something I will keep in mind every time my friends call me a 'shopaholic'! A black skater skirt is definitely a very versatile piece, you did such a great job layering it for the cold, you look so warm and that you're really enjoying playing with all that snow! Keep up with the sketches, they are very beautiful and I loved seeing them in this post!

  17. I'm never sure where to wear the skater skirt. It doesn't seem to flatter my body at my waist or my hips. Hmmm.

  24. Oooooh! I would looove to wear something like in the last drawing ;) I can definitely see how you got that from my outfits! I love it :)
    I'm also trying to pack my suitcase for a trip to Japan (for cold weather, the opposite of what it is here right now) - your matching of your scarf with socks has inspired me! It looks awesome. Thank you :)
