Thanks for all the sweet notes yesterday! Boyfriend is doing much better now, aside from the usual "post-illness fatigue." I'm sure he'll be back to 100% after this weekend.

And before I jump into the OOTD, welcome my new sponsor, NOVICA! We've put together an awesome giveaway for you lovely readers, the details of which will be revealed tonight. Ooooh, the anticipation!

Now the OOTD:

blouse, marc by marc jacobs
cardigan, j.crew [x]
skirt, f21 [x]
tights, merona
heels, steve madden
belt, f21
ring, f21
bangle, kate spade

It seems like winter's finally here, but I don't know if I believe that it'll actually stick around this time. Houston's weather is notorious for playing with my emotions, that rapscallion.

Anyhoodle, this whole outfit is kind of very "school marm," is it not? I didn't realize it until waaay later in the day. I should have smacked someone with a ruler to really sell the look, but maybe it's better I didn't. I kind of like my car un-keyed.

The skirt is a surprise F21 find. I just love a full skirt, though most of them are way too long for my 5'2" frame. This one is no exception, though I think I might have helped myself out by wearing heels. For those of you who are interested, I suggest sticking with your usual F21 skirt size. I'm wearing one size too big here (since that's all they had in the store), which fits fine, but is a little too voluminous for my taste. It's also pretty heavy, which is awesome for cooler weather.

Have a good weekend! And remember, giveaway details tonight!


  1. I love your ring! Great skirt too - it looks very cozy.

    I'm glad your BF is feeling better - guys can be such pains when they are sick. Mine is feeling a bit under the weather as well and he is whining non-stop. Ack!!!!

  2. That skirt really does look warm and cozy. If you are able to sew you could probably alter it to take down the volume a little.

  3. I can't believe that is a F21 skirt...looks so classy! I actually like the high volume on you :)

  4. That looks like a perfect winter skirt. I love the pattern on it.

  5. i think the skirt looks amazing on you! so much so, i braved the mall and went to F21 last night for the sole purpose of hunting it down :) love it.
