I’ll try not to talk about my Limited Too days again for a whole post like I did last week, but this skirt reminds me of it. It reminds me of the first day of 5th grade pulling up to school in my plaid skort…man I was the coolest kid ever. Actually, I really wasn’t. I was the new kid in school and I was a big nerd to be totally honest. I might have looked amazing that first day of school, but don’t let my plaid skirt fool you. I owned lime green shorts that made it down to my knees and a penguin shirt I let my Mom make me wear. I also had these awesome London themed Doc Martins I wore with shorts and a LTD2 shirt. I won’t even make you imagine it, I’ll go right ahead and show you how it was….
It has been chilly here in Texas for the past few days, and I have been taking that weather as a chance to wear all of my fall/winter clothing before it gets warm again. I have to say though, as much as I love warm weather style I am so ready for spring. I know, I know, we have had some really nice weather here too…in fact it’s supposed to be in the high 60’s today and the high 70’s again this weekend too:) Woohoo! Look forward to some sunny spring outfits on the blog next week!

You may remember this dress from this post where I wore it pretty simply with nude flats and some gold jewelery. I decided to dress it a little more casually today with some mustard tights and my favorite boots. Tights really are one of my favorite ways to change up the look of a dress and I love the mix of the jewel tones here!
By the way, totally off topic, but I would highly recommend going to your local Charming Charlie and finding this watch. I have gotten more compliments on it than probably any other jewelery item I own.
What’s your go to piece that always gets tons of compliments?
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe night and that you all have today off to relax! I have had a wonderful week…..a half day on Monday, no work yesterday or today…I will have a rude awakening tomorrow when I have to work for 8 hours. Good thing I have a job I enjoy going to:)
It has been super fun to read everyone’s year in review posts, it’s been a great way to get to know some of my favorite bloggers. If you have one, put your link in my comments so that I can go check it out! Now it’s time for everyone’s resolution posts to start. Well, I’m just going to let the cat out of the bag and let you know that I don’t do resolutions. I used to make a big long list and then I’d just feel bad when I didn’t follow through will all these grand things I promised myself I would do. Instead I just always vow to live the year to the fullest and try to be as healthy and happy as I can be:)
This scarf is the best. I kept seeing them all over the internet, but they were always $50-$60 and I just knew I wouldn’t wear it enough to justify the price tag. I finally found this one on Nordstrom.com and it was only $24.95. Highly Recommend. This is the perfect first day of the year outfit:)
What are you going to wear to the first day of 2014?
Until next time…
