Isn't this a lovely skirt? Chocolate-coloured fabric is made ladylike with flowers and butterflies embroidered in a pretty turquoise with a few small sequins sewn onto the skirt for that little extra kick - like bubbles in champagne. The knee-length wrap skirt is an extra large, 16/18, and made to tie in front or back per your preference. You probably won't be able to borrow one of my turquoise sweaters to wear with this, but they're not too hard to find this time of year; a white, chocolate, or turquoise blouse would match beautifully as wear. Finish the look with warm tights and cute shoes or just slip on knee-high boots (my favourite to keep legs warm on cold, windy days) and you're ready to head out in style!
$56 from Nicole Lee Designs, which (based on my perusal) seems to cater to larger women. Check out this fun retro wrap skirt, too. I really like her clean-lined but fun fashion sense; nothing boring or plain here.
I hope everyone had a great weekend; we finally got the first coat of primer up in our master bedroom! The sanding of joint compound took far longer than we thought it would, not to mention...well, new house means all sorts of things get moved around on the schedule, especially since football season is in full swing. Poor Rachel over at Hue probably thinks I've totally rejected her thoughts, but, no, just waiting for all the prep work to be done.
Our other big question right now is what to do with the kitchen. It's a cheery, beautiful shade of turquoise, but we're not sure how the stainless appliances will look with shiny white cabinets. I'd prefer white because it's more retro than the present natural oak stain, but...I'm not so sure. Not that it changes my state of bliss regarding that gorgeous new wall colour, though (it's Valspar's "Sea Wave", if you're curious). What do you think?
