Happy 2017 to everyone! It seems like every year, January 3rd is the day where everything is starting to finally settle after a long season of inevitable busy-ness, two weeks of which always seem ultra intense. It’s back to reality and starting fresh, which personally, I kind of look forward to. I like the New Year and the motivation to get a head start that it usually brings. So, even though there’s that stretch of chaos, it’s good that it comes around because otherwise we might not have that motivation to hit the restart button.
To honor the feeling of dishevelment that tags along with the holidays, in today’s post I’m wearing a taffeta/velvet ruffle skirt that I made about 2 years ago… A ruffle skirt to mark the end of feeling ruffled. ;)
Like many of my other projects, the dotted taffeta was a remnant of fabric I had laying around that was plaguing me. I had to use it up somehow…and so the ruffle skirt was made.
Outfit details: Chambray shirt: H&M; Scarf: Preston and York; Belt: Anthropologie (no longer available); Clutch: Target (no longer available) Boots: Aldo (similar here, and on sale!).
How does the end of the holiday season make you feel?
