Fancy Sweatshirts + Fluted Skirts

If there are two things I’m gravitating towards right now, they have to be fancy sweatshirts and fluted skirts. I love the flirty feel of a subtle fluted hem. And seriously, what’s better than a dressed-up sweatshirt? (Answer: Nothing.) It’s like wearing pajamas in public, but totally acceptable.

    I actually just purchased the same skirt. A flirty skirt and a dresses up sweatshirt is going to be the best combo for fall/winter. Also J.Crew just came out with a collection version of the same skirt that is the prettiest brown leather.

    I love that skirt! It’s such a cute cut! And that dark lip color is awesome on you! I’ve yet to try a dark shade but it just seems so fall appropriate! I love it!

    I’m liking the darker, edgier look on you-and I seriously think you should wear darker lipsticks more often, it really pops!

      Thanks! This is the same shade I wore all last winter. I’ll be bringing it back as the cooler temps set in. Would be a bit much during the summer! 😉

    I love embellished sweatshirts! I have an old one from J. Crew from years ago that is a sweatshirt with full on sparkles all over the front-haven’t worn it in a while but now I’m psyched to pull it out again.
