Breaking Away

It's been raining all day today, and it looks like it's going to keep going until the end of the weekend. Unfortunately life doesn't pause for a little rain, so I braved it, and was out in it all day. That also means that I did not look cute, so no pics of today's outfit, but good news is I have an outfit from a few days ago saved up! This is from when it was ridiculously frigid and windy. In an attempt to break away from the recent trouser outfit take-over, I wore my brightest midi skirt. Wool tights and boots aided in keeping me warm, as did the wool sweater and trench coat. My favorite part was that the wind would pick up the skirt, and it would flow with the wind beautifully.

Trench Coat: H&M. Sweater: J.Crew. Skirt: Vintage. Boots: Rachel Comey. Sunglasses: Vintage. Belt: Forever 21. Bag: Anthropologie. Tights: H&M.

    Toni- Thanks! You're right, we have been needing it, but this milder winter we have been having has completely spoiled me!

    Daniella- Aww thank you! I love this skirt! when I found it at the thrift store, I did everything to make it work (it was too small) so I could own it :)

    Have a great weekend everyone!
