I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to wear this skirt by Jeffrey Sebelia (yes, that’s the Jeffrey from Project Runway), ie. Cosa Nostra – and today was finally the day. It’s not “technically” a “pokey skirt”, but I love referring to it by that name, because it’s one of my favorite attributes of the skirt.
Do you like my new bookshelf? Yes! I finally have furniture! There will need to be an update on that soon…
Today was abnormally cold for what you’d expect from Chicago in August. It’s been in the mid- to low-sixties since I got home on Thursday, and I’m displeased (as I always seem to be when I post about the weather).
This skirt is made of a beautiful, thick material and – yes – it has pockets. Oh, how addicted to pockets I am. Some days I wonder if I hope for rain and cold just so I can utilize whatever pockets I’m currently sporting.
I know the skirt looks blue, but it’s actually… plaid. It’s a navy background with a really delicate and beautiful pinky-purple plaid design all over it.
The top is just an old (like 3 years old) Forever 21 top, which I also have in white. That concludes my closet’s Forever 21 inventory and I am a-okay with that. The top underneath it is my treasured Poof thermal top I was ever-so taken with a bundle of months ago. It’s still just as soft and thin as it ever was, but now it has an amazing orange stain right in the center of the damn thing, so it’s been banished to the world of “undershirts”. A sad day, indeed.
I’m wearing my favorite Steve Madden spectator pumps, but failed to get a decent photograph with them on. My apartment is getting all filled up with fun and games, so there aren’t many blank, white walls upon which to showcase my amazing shoes. :(
