No, I don't still have my Christmas decorations up. Everything came down last weekend, one week after New Years. And I promise you, these are the last photos you will see with Christmas decor in the background. My daughter was home for the holidays, and whenever she comes home we love to play a grown up version of "dress up" and try on different outfits and each other clothes. And while we were doing that, she took some photos of me that I could use for today's blog post.
For today's outfit, I am wearing a plaid shirt from Modcloth (old, last shown HERE and HERE), a burgundy skater skirt of Ashley's, a cream scarf with sparkles in it (also Ashley's), black tights, and black booties (old, Famous Footwear).
It's so hard to photograph black booties when your wearing black tights because the blackness of the two just blend together. Oh, and if you ever want to make you legs look longer, this is a good trick. Wear the same color shoe as your tights....it instantly elongates your legs!
The shoes come slightly above the ankle, are made of suede, and have a small heel.
I really like the shape of a skater skirt on my body type. It's the perfect skirt to wear if you have narrow hips and thinner legs.
And for extra warmth, I added this black fur vest.
I picked up this awesome black fur vest in the Junior department of J.C. Penney for only $9.59 cents ! I really didn't need another fur vest, and I tend not to like the thicker fur vests for I feel they add a lot of unwanted pounds, but at that price, "Who Cares?".
This vest is so warm, it's ridiculous! I first wore it to the Mall of America HERE, and I thought I would die I was so warm. So this past Sunday when they temperatures dropped below zero I wore it again, and I was toasty warm all day! I didn't even need to zip my outer jacket closed (but that was because I couldn't zip my jacket closed, the vest is too thick to wear under a jacket!).
Have a great day! Amy
