Happy March 1st!
My spirit has been greatly lifted now that February (IE the last officially unofficial month of Winter) is over and we can start focusing on bright colors, skirts, dresses and everything warm weather.
I have been slowly (read over-zealously already wearing) introducing skirts and sweet feminine pieces to my wardrobe. Even though the day I wore this pink skirt it was 55 and cloudy, I wasn’t going to let that interrupt my Spring-time frame of mind.

I’ve been heavily obsessed with “femme-ing” up my wardrobe this year. I’ve recently invested small stock into my skirt game so don’t be surprised if you see a lot more skirts and dresses this year opposed to the shorts and pants of years past.
As what my friend refers to as the “lamp shade” skirt, I would affectionately call it the pleated pink skirt. In person it’s a wonderful shade of peachy/pink/ hot coral that really changes in different light settings. I was excited to try out the midi-skirt trend but I don’t think it’s one I’m going to pursue as I’ve already taken this skirt to the tailor’s to get the hem altered to hit just above my knee.
Although, for the price of this skirt and the quality, I don’t regret my decision to take it to the tailor’s. It’s a lovely timeless piece, that with good care and careful wearing should last me years on end – which leaves my friend plenty of opportunities to come up with any good lampshade jokes – HA!
Jokes on him because I love this outfit and will definitely be re-wearing it as the warmer months draw closer. Currently this skirt and shirt (basically the whole outfit) is on sale up to 50% off! If you’re looking for some good additions to your wardrobe, check out these pieces here.
