The Only Pale Pink Thing I Own...

Photobucket

I've been scoping out this skirt on the UO website foreeeeever. It was on my Christmas list but I didn't get it because my mom decided not to buy me any clothes this Christmas. I guess she thinks I already have enough? hmm...

Cardigan, t-shirt, shoes - Old Navy; Skirt - Urban Outfitters

Anywho, I finally got my hands on it and I like it a lot. I haven't had time to really play with the styling so I wore it with something really basic today. My first instinct was to toughen it up with darker colors because I'm not one to usually wear pinks or pastels. They are growing on me though - especially pale pinks, blues and mint greens. I wish my camera showed the color a little better, it looks almost white here. There's a much better photo on the UO website.

Well, that's what I wore to class anyways. Before work I decided to change my shirt and cardigan and add a scarf...

Tank - Old Navy, Scarf - Gap, Cardigan - J.Crew

Which look do you like better? I think I prefer this one.

So, I want to do some cooking this weekend I think. Do any of you have some favorite recipes to share?

This looks really good on you! I have the same skirt actually, but I've only worn it once. A bit hard to style! You managed it very well! :]

P.S. I am a decidedly horrible cook, sorry!

Enough clothes? I don't really understand the concept of that statement! I love your tiered skirt. It really does look nice on you. Great incorporation for the winter months. I have a great vegetarian paella recipe if you want it.

That skirt is so sweet. My family never buys me clothes b/c they're always concerned I won't like what they pick. ;)

Okay, I know I'm pretty late to say this (Django and I have been almost completely off the internet for over 1 week! Were back now!) I LOVE YOUR HAIR! Oh it so cute + It look amazing on you! Trust me, it not the kinda style everybody can pull off! I also love your skirt and t-shirt combo, such a nice casual chic look combo!

I love wearing pastels with black. That skirt could easily look cutesy, but I think the black really balances it out.
