This skirt is hands down one of the best things I’ve bought for Spring this year. It’s obviously a beautiful purple tone which screams Easter, and tulips, and warming weather. But even better than that, it’s velvet, meaning it’s insanely soft and comfortable, plus it has an elastic waistband. Pretty much, it’s like wearing pyjamas in skirt form. Triple love. Also, this bows shell and cardigan is a staple in my wardrobe. Because of the neutral colours, it matches almost everything I own, and I find the bows the add a fun pop. Particularly because I typically buy pants or skirts that are sold colours, and then enjoy pairing them with a patterned top. I like to get all of my shells and cardigans from J.Crew because they have the perfect fit for my shape, and so many seasonal colours and prints. I also own several from J.Crew factory and although they don’t have the same amazing feel because they aren’t cashmere, they do have the same fit, and are worth a try – especially for the price point difference if you aren’t one who makes a staple out of the sets.
If you’re a Chicagoan, I hope you’re enjoying these photos from a few days ago when we could pretend it was Spring, and avoid the looming snow storm that hit this morning!
