Weekly Wears: Bundle, Baby

Sweater: Target;  Skirt: c/o Lulu's (similar);  Coat: Vintage;  Purse: Adele Shop;  Boots: c/o Sandgrens;  Socks: c/o Three Bird Nest;  Barrettes: freebies from ModCloth;  Bangles: Vintage

It's cold.  I know it's winter and everything, but it's cold and I'm getting a little grumpy about it.  I'm sure people north of me are rolling their eyes big time right now, but it's my party (blog) and I'll cry if I want to.  I'm pretty ready for Spring at this point in the year, every year.  I guess that makes me somewhat of a one-trick pony, but I don't care.  I'm yearning for some sunshine!

Also... I've learned you can layer all the tights and socks your heart desires when you drape a long skirt over them.  I'm not really certain why this took me so long, but it is awesome!

**I'm the guest pinner for Sandgrens this month!  You can follow my board titled "The Chosen One" right here.  :)

  4. I am north from you, not rolling my eyes, and totally in the same boat! It has been a somewhat milder winter here than the past couple of years, but it's still freezing, snowy and grey, and i can't wait for spring to arrive.
    I love your skirt! I think a vibrant maxi is just what I need this spring ;)

  15. I've had to put away my maxis for the winter because there's so much gross brown snow on the ground....and after seeing this I'm even sadder about that. I love maxi skirts in winter.

  20. I totally understand, I'm yearning for spring too! But seeing your outfit made me realize that I need a long skirt pretty damn soon! I love your styling of it, such a good idea to pile on the leggings and socks for the cold!

  21. I'm ready for spring too! I have a similar pleated skirt from Victoria's Secret in dark purple that I bought on clearance. (summer version here: http://www.victoriassecret.com/clothing/skirts/pleated-maxi-skirt?ProductID=100412&CatalogueType=OLS)

    I layer thick leggings under it, and it's super warm that way. I like how you styled this!

  25. You make this skirt look so good. I bought a black one a while back thinking I could pair it with everything, and I've yet to wear it. Also, I'm with you on the Spring thing. It's February, in Florida...it should not be 30 degrees. HA!
