the race is on, ladies, but the finish line is in sight. and i think i just might come in under the wire. all that’s left on my to-do list is pick up a few stocking stuffers. and buy a special something for mr. style. why is it that he’s always the last person i shop for? it was the same with my dad. maybe because it’s hard to shop for someone who claims they have everything they need… well, as they say, “when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping!” at least, that’s my version of the adage.
the weather decided to play nice today. that forecasted rain wasn’t delivered until later tonight, so it was easy to navigate the stores with this cute little number from talbots. checked blazer and denim skirt. notice the ruffle on the blazer. this detail gives a modern vibe and keeps this ootd looking current and up-to-date. yet undeniably classic. denim skirts are a great alternative to blue jeans, and i always seem to add one more to my collection each year. maybe two if it’s as cute as this button skirt. spoiler alert. the cashmere sweater and suede boots from j.crew are several years old.
tallyho, gang! until tomorrow.
