Floating and Spinning


When I wear this skirt it makes me want to twirl. So I spun and twirled in the privacy of my own backyard. And then I pulled it together in public. It was really hard to stay still though, I must admit.

I hardly ever wear this skirt because I find it difficult to style. I thought I'd keep it monochromatic this time. I actually had on a pair of grey tights and then I had an idea to throw on these purple tights as well as these red earrings. Red and purple are complimentary colors. Instead of my all black wool coat, I opted for this leopard print coat. I'm happy with the outcome.

How would you style this skirt? I need at least one more way to wear it. I wore it one other time a year ago, here. Not much different from today's outfit really. Oh well.

I think you styled this skirt perfectly. You look slouchy and cool which is keeping in vibe with the skirt.

Ah, so you're one of the COOL kids. The tied belt is cool, the purple tights are cool, the whimsical pose is cool. I'm hoping I'm cool merely from knowing you. Can I bask in your glory?

Ooh! I like the tights on you! This reminds me, I have a purple pair of tights just like this that I have yet to style for my little colored-tight challenge. Note to self: purple + leopard print. Together. Forever.

Luv you!

Until now I hadn't realized how desperately I wanted purple tights. You've inspired me. And your boots are ridiculously awesome as well. You look adorable, particularly when you're twirling around like that. Too. Freakin'. Cute.

I would want to spin and twirl too in that skirt. Love the purple tights too (my fave color). A slim fitting turtleneck would look great with this skirt. Just a thought? Heather
