Things I'm Obsessed With (Including This Skirt)



WHAT I'M WEARING :: Necklace // Molly Suzanne :: Top // Old Navy :: Skirt // Copper Peacock Boutique :: Watch // Kohl's :: Flats // Target

I've been eyeing up this midi-skirt business for months. What I mean by that is I've been compulsively pinning outfits that incorporate them and trying them on every time I run across one in the department store(s) I frequent. To cut to the chase, I never could quite get myself to pull the trigger for $35-$50. I'm working on paying student loans this summer and to be real, I'm the type of girl who would rather spend the remainder of her nanny paychecks on books anyway. Needless to say, when my friend Ashley clearanced these skirts in her shop, I was the first in line to snatch one up. $10 -- yes, please!

I wore it last week and absolutely fell in love. The material is stretchy, comfortable, and breathable. It's the perfect skirt for summer, but will still be very versatile come fall! I'm going to try pairing it with a few fitted tops I have next. I'm not the biggest fan of the frumpiness this olive one seemed to add, (didn't even notice that til I looked at these photos...maybe I'm being too critical of myself) but overall this was a comfortable outfit and I'd wear it again!

Aside from compulsively pinning outfits on Pinterest, I'm also obsessed with reading right now. There is so little time left until school starts and homework makes zero time for "reading for fun!" I'm currently engrossed in Jaycee Dugard's memoir titled "A Stolen Life" which focuses on the horrifying story of her kidnapping and time in captivity. The resilience that shines through in her writing is incredible. I'm also re-reading the sequel to "If I Stay" because I made the mistake of watching the movie yesterday and now I need closure all over again. Man, I get attached to fictional characters way too easily. I just finished the new Harper Lee Novel "Go Set A Watchman" last weekend and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. :)

I'm also currently obsessed with oatmeal, applesauce, how light my hair looks in these photos, and meeting my Fitbit step goal. At least two of those things don't involve eating...am I right? Thanks a lot, Prednisone. As always, I'm also obsessed with browsing Amazon for sweet deals. My most recent purchases include this statement necklace and this laptop decal. Lucky for you, my friend Kate organized this great giveaway last week and there's still some time to enter! I thought I'd share it here today so you don't miss out -- especially if you have an Amazon obsession like I do!


 
Anyhow, even though it's been a hot minute since I've linked up an outfit post, I'm excited to click around today and play under-qualified fashion blogger. ;)

What are you obsessed with right now?

LOVE that skirt! You look gorgeous!

If you need a good, inspiring book to read...try Fractured, not Broken. It's about a girl from my hometown. SO good!

Just found your blog off a comment on another gal's outfit post; I love your style. I really dig this combo. I adored the flats; finding a way to make flats rock an outfit and maintain style and comfort is always my goal!
