Sweatshirts and Pleated Skirts

**This post contains affiliate links.

Ok guys, I know what you're thinking: this girl has an issue with pleated skirts. Or, this girl needs another pleated skirt like a hole in the head. Or, does this girl realize there's more to life than pleated skirts? The answer is no, I don't realize it, that's why I keep wearing them. That and they're soooo-oooo cute. Take this velvet beauty:

I mean, be serious. How could I not get it? It looked so lonely sitting there on the rack, and well, I thought it would be good company for all of my other pleated skirts. And since I've been dressing up my skirts a bit lately, I wanted to make this a more casual look - which I thought this sweatshirt was perfect for. I knotted it in back just to change the silhouette slightly...fitted versus a smidge frumpy.

I've also gotten SO much wear out of these booties. The soles are full of traction, making them absolutely perfect for winter - who couldn't use a little more resistance to slips and slides (also known as face-plants and butt-busters)?

My fingers are crossed that this was the last snowy shoot I'll being doing for awhile. While I'm excited for warmer temps (hopefully they will stay), that also means that it's also pre-spring...which could also be called "ugly season." The snow is gone, the trees are bare and look dead. The grass looks dead. The flowers are dead. Basically, everything is gross and dead-looking and, well, it's not the Midwest's best face. But I'll take it, I've so over the snow:)
