What I'm Wearing: Holiday Heat Wave



It has been unseasonably warm here in southeastern Michigan. The temperature has been hovering around 50 degrees for the last few days -  a  December heat wave in my books. The only time I ever really want snow is Christmas and as of right now it doesn't look like I will be getting it. Wahhhh! Oh well, I will dry my tears and console myself with a cookie or two.... or ten and possibly a pie. I feel my butt growing as we speak. It will reach Kardashian status in 3...2...1.


Today I am participating in Bloggers Rock the Colors of Christmas. I am wearing a few colors on the list: blue, green, white and just a touch of gold.


My mom thrifted this gorgeous skirt for me this past weekend and I couldn't wait to wear it. I love the rich fabric and pleating. I paired it with a striped top, blazer, statement necklace and cute flats for a work appropriate look.


Shirt and Blazer: Charlotte Russe, Skirt: Thrifted from Salvation Army (Thanks, Mom!), 
Necklace: JC Penney, Shoes: Loft


Here is how you can get a similar look.

Do you like how I rocked the holiday heat wave?

  10. I'm afraid that I'm going to have to confiscate your shoes. And your necklace. And maybe your blouse. You know, just to be safe, why don't you just hand it all over? It'll be safer for everyone involved... ::side eye::

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
