Ensemble du Jour

Well, due to the fact that it gets dark at 5 o'clock and it's also cold as heck out, I've found it very difficult to take outfit pictures.

Oh, yeah, and my regular p&s camera stinks.

I'm on the lookout for new equipment, but in the mean time, I forced the hubby to take a week's worth of pictures in the afternoon on Sunday. My neighbors must think I'm crazy because I did four outfit changes and stood in the driveway in the cold taking the shots.



On Monday the 4th, the first day back at work, I wore a cute cardigan and skirt by Pink Tartan that I got on major sale from Saks. The only thing is, they're too big. But luckily, I have new seamstress who is going to help me fix a bunch of clothes that I need to adjust, plus work with me to make some new custom ideas I have.

Yeah!



Yeah, the sweater is much too bug but it's cute and cozy and I can layer it open like a jacket.



The plaid skirt is a tulip shape which can be a bit tricky but I like it.




I paired the two with a black camisole, tights and patent mary janes, all from Target.

It was a cozy start to another year!

Tulip skirts really can be so hard to wear! Yours looks really darling on though. You've got this adorable preppy thing going on.

I know, I hate it getting dark so soon. But your outfit really brightens up a dreary day. Just love that jacket!

There is something so sexy about Mary Janes ,specially Patent ones with a round toe.
