30for30: Twenty-five


Y'all, it is cold and windy outside. I mean miserably cold and windy, and while I love this outfit and would have preferred taking it somewhere pretty to be photographed, I don't want to have to deal with wind blowing my hair, my face turning red from being cold, and dreading taking off my coat. I like cold weather - a lot, but I just don't feel like battling with it today. Hope you understand. Try to imagine that brick wall as a beautiful field with lots of colors and the sun about to set. It's difficult, but just do it. 

Back to the outfit. I love it. I've been planning it for such a long time and I will definitely be re-wearing this throughout the holidays and even after. It was actually what I wanted to wear for thanksgiving, but I told you all in that post that I just wasn't feeling well and I prefer to dress how I feel. Who wants to wear a tight skirt and heels when they feel bad? Not this girl! I love how the dark colors contrast the cream colored, lace shirt. It's perfect. Love, Love, Love this!!

Shirt: Target
Skirt: NY&Co.
Tights: Target
Booties: Steve Madden

I don't blame you for not wanting to deal with the cold! And the brick doesn't make a bad background at all. :)

I really like the neutral lace paired with the dark skirt/black tights. Such great contrast & so stylish.
