Hunter Green & Radiant Orchid

What more can I say about this skirt? The color is cheery and the shape flattering. I have worn things for lesser reasons. 

I finally broke away from neutral colors (gray / black), which I consider a vast improvement.

    how high are you wearing the skirt on your body? it looks pretty long in the stock photo (on someone who I assume is taller than us-- i am only 5'3''). it is a great length and look on you.

    p.s. since you mentioned it, you've sparked my curiosity about the old expensive habit. is it fashion related?
    missed your posts :)

    1. Hi there!

      The skirt is folded down at the waist by a few inches. The original length isn't prohibitively long for women of our height but I do like having the option of temporarily shortening the length.

      As for my other vice, it's not fashion related. It's...Legos (I know...I really should pursue a more "grown up" hobby). For some reason I can't seem to find a cheaper hobby to occupy my time with, even innocuous ones like poker become expensive. ;)

    2. wait, legos? What do you do with them?? ;)

    3. Construct things with them. ;)

  2. I really love the colours! Your last few posts have been so beautiful! The leave shirt peeking out just a bit is also such a great little touch!

  3. Your hair looks gorgeous! Love the lace top under the sweater. I purchased a lace top years ago that does not get enough are giving me ideas. :)

    1. Thank you, Michelle! :)

  4. BRWISH40 is not working for me. Is it for cardholders only? TIA.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      Sorry about the delay. I think BRWISH40 expired at midnight on the day the post went live. What are you looking to purchase? I'll keep my eyes peeled for a code. :)

  5. I agree-- the color combos have been really nice recently. I think you should keep mixing!
