It's March. Know what that means? Sigh. I'm about ready to burn my skinnies. Like, literally burn them. As a sacrifice to the weather gods to BRING ME SOME SUN ALREADY. I mean, it feels like Spring…in my heart. BOOOO
As a sanity saving measure, I'm wearing a skirt.
Long-time readers may recall my love affair with bandage minis last summer. Well, I busted 'em out again. Already!! I know. But here's the thing: Remember our Leggings-As-Pants discussion? This cheap little skirt kinda solves that problem. And since it's stretchy (and cheap – I did mention cheap, right?)…it's perfect for running around with the kids.
Note: I happen to be wearing tights in these pics, but I do this with leggings all the time – you wouldn't know the diff. And navy + black, because I'm obsessed. And, of course, a turtleneck. Sigh.
(wearing: An ancient Gap turtleneck sweater – here's one that's awesomely oversized, Target bandage mini – similar at Forever 21 for $6, Plush fleece-lined tights, Steve Madden wedge sneaks, bag from top pic is Nine West – love this nylon one on sale for $38)
We've been visiting DC quite a bit. Mike has had work conferences blahblahblah – anyway, I've been taking advantage of free-to-me hotels in this very cool city. We actually got a bit of sun. Enough to – gasp – REMOVE THE TURTLENECK. Mike took pictures as proof.
Which brings me to my last point about bandage minis: you can wear them with some over-sized, slightly schlubby, pooch-hiding top and you still look cute. Because HEY! SKIRT!
Final Note: I would like to take credit for finding this skirt…but I cannot. M texted me a pic of this awesome Target find last summer, and I instantly ran out and bought it. Cause that's what friends do: Dress as TargetTwinsTargetTwins.
ps. How do you guys prefer the outfit details? Under the pic (as above), or down at the bottom, all together – like this?
pps. Thank you SO much for linking up and sending in v-neck sweater pics! I'm keeping the post updated…so keep on sending!! xoxo
