Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack
Skirt: BB Dakota
Boots: Indigo by Clarks
In the past, this skirt was usually reserved for the winter months, when I paired it with a black or grey top. I never thought of wearing it in the warmer months because A) it's a thicker fabric, and B) it's indigo-y blue, which I usually associate with fall and winter.
Now that it's April, I feel like I SHOULD be dressing more for spring, despite the still-really-cold temperatures. Even though I'm still stuck in thick tights and boots, I thought I could at least lighten up the colors a bit, and not go with the usual dark-and-drab look. I had envisioned wearing this skirt with a lavender top, but since I don't own such a thing, magenta it was.
So, this skirt has an exposed zipper that runs along the entire back without a little hook and eye closure on top (maybe I should just put one in myself..) and my son happens to LOVE unzipping zippers right now. I was putting some dishes away and he came up behind me, reached up and unzipped my skirt, and the entire thing fell to the ground. I'm just lucky he didn't do this while we were out. You know how embarrassing that would have been? I don't even want to think about it.
