Skirt the Rules

Here's something you don't see often: me in a skirt! Yes, I do like to wear dresses, but skirts aren't typically my jam. And when I do, I tend to wear skirts that are a little different like here, here and here. But it's good to step out of your comfort zone a little bit and wear a skirt once in a while, especially when it's as cute as this one from Chicwish! How awesome is this lace-up skirt in this beautiful color? Can you tell that I'm sticking to neutrals these days? Nothing goes better with brown than gray...or black...or both. This knit wrap sweater is also from Chicwish and it kept me quite warm over the weekend. And I added a hint of lace to jazz it up a notch. You like?

Are you guys happy that it's the first outfit of December? That's right -- it's officially the last month of the year. And what a year it's been! 2016 seriously can't end fast enough, am I right? I feel like throughout the year everyone kept saying that the days and weeks and months were just flying by. And maybe that was a fabulous thing because it's hard for me to remember much good that came out of this year. But that actually really makes you think about (and look forward to) the new year and all the ways that you can make it kick 2016's ass. 2017 could be your year!

So muses, are you counting down the days? Are you excited about all the possibilities that come with a fresh start in a new year? Or are you just trying to make sure you bought presents for all the people on your list? I've realized over the years that I don't really care that much about presents. But if I could gift everyone a one-week trip to their favorite place on earth then that's totally what I would do. Experiencing a new place can mean so much more than a knit sweater.

I'm not much of a skirt person either, but I do love this lace up one you're wearing. :) And TBH, right now, I'm hoping 2017 would definitely be better than 2016. Been a really weird personally.
PS I think that's lovely...giving your loved ones a one week trip to their fave place:) When I win the lotto, would definitely do this!

Oh that is a cute skirt, love the retro vibe. Would have to wear with tights here in NY. Well this year ended on somewhat of a bad note. Hopefully this coming year will be a good one despite it.
