outfit post: awning skirt, coal top, white cardigan


Inspiration - La Vie Petite

I read a really cute mom fashion blogger La Vie Petite. She has worn the most adorable self-made  striped skirt she calls The Awning Skirt in quite a few of her outfits posts. A few times she has even sewn and given one away. Recently she announced that she has opened her own online store to sell the the skirt in three colors. The site is called CoriLynn.

While I'm not normally one to spend $115 on a skirt - I decided to take the plunge and buy one! I rationalized that because it's a super classic design I will be able to wear it forever. And I really like the idea of supporting someone starting out on their own creative venture. And I love it sooo much!

    1. Thank you so much Whitney! I feel really lucky to be able to afford such a cute & custom made skirt. And to support a fellow blogger's venture. I love it and I'm excited to try out in a bunch of different outfits!

      (I just had so much fun looking through your archives. I love help with what to wear to work!)

    1. Thank you so much! Sometimes I look at all the other blogs with their supermodel poses & perfect photography & think mine needs a lot more effort. But then I remember it's just for fun and I'm going to do what I can and then just let it be. It's great to hear that people will like it! :)
