fair weather fair isle

I haven't been particularly drawn to wool mini-skirts of the fair isle persuasion in the past but this one practically jumped off the rack and into my cart last Sunday.  It could have been the price ($6.99), or the color combination (dark green and orange, a new favorite pairing), or maybe it was the way it makes my butt look (which is fabulous)... whatever the reason, it came home with me that day and I've been formulating outfit ideas around it ever since.  This outfit was inspired by cozy layers and thoughts of icy winter mornings... in reality it's been in the high-60s and mid-70s here for most of the month.  We've had the occasional cold front but in typical Florida fashion, the cool temps never stick around.  It's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when you're sweating through your sweater, but I'm making do.

Speaking of Christmas, I need more than 10 days to get ready for it.  Most of my gifts this year are of a DIY nature which means I have a lot of work to do and very little time to do it.  Couple that with my penchant for procrastination and I imagine I'll be working late into Christmas Eve putting the finishing touches on my gifts.  Here's hoping for a Christmas miracle :)

I adore the skirt! In fact I just wrote a post about bodycon skirts but none of the ones I featured are as nice as that one; it's very autumnal! xx

Okay, first of all, to respond to that particularly kickass comment you left for me: you're a fellow feisty chick, and you couldn't weird me out with "hot bod" comments if you tried. And second: you're one to talk! Look at that hourglass!!! Dang woman, that mini was MADE for you!
