Winter is Coming | Midi Skirt and Gingham

Happy Wednesday lovelies!



Sorry for being MIA lately. We had a crazy amount of snow here in DC and freezing rain soon after that and I just couldn't make an outdoor photo shoot work so please excuse the poor lighting and lack of pictures. I will try my best for the rest of the week! 



Another reason I haven't been blogging as much is because I recently got a promotion at work! I'm going through the paperwork and I start my new position on Monday but I've been quite busy. I'm still trying to figure out how this promotion will affect my blogging schedule but I've vowed I can figure it out. :]




Anyways, I wore this outfit to a holiday party last Friday. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that this was the skirt I got from Choies. It's a pretty taffeta material in the loveliest shade of green ever. It was much too long on me, however (for a guide, I'm 5'3) and I had to get it hemmed. My tailor was kind enough to save the extra fabric that he cut off and hem that so I could use it as a belt or a scarf or anything I wanted. Can't wait to get creative with that too! 

Have a great week!

Top: Gingham dress (worn as a top) gifted from Korea
Bottoms: Choies skirt
Accessories: LouLou necklace, Juicy Couture clutch
Shoes: Zara heels

  1. I love your outfit! I've always been afraid of wearing midi skirts because I'm so short, but it suits you really well x

  3. Isn't it crazy, it went from like 68 degrees to an ice storm?! I love this outfit! I wish I had somewhere to go that I needed to dress up because I love that skirt-- although I'm not sure I could pull it off as well!

  4. Love the skirt on you and I was wondering how long it would be on me if I ordered it as I am only 5 foot. Love it paired with the gingham top! Have a good day!

  7. Oh congrats on your new promotion with a job that you really love. You look so pretty in this outfit and I agree that the skirt has the prettiest shade of green and very festive. I have the same skirt and yes still at the tailor because it is so overwhelming on me. I can't wait for mine.

  21. Wow, congratulations on the promotion!! That's so exciting!!! :)

    I'm sure you'll find time to blog. Even with work being busy, you need time set aside for hobbies and personal stuff too...but you obviously know that.

    I love how cute your outfit is. I am always a fan of a full skirt and look forward to seeing what you do with the rest of the material.
