Hello! Today, I wore an outfit perfect for keeping me warm yet stylish. I planned my outfit around this butterfly print skirt. Funny story about this skirt- it originally was a dress but I outgrew the bust of the dress and decided to re-create it into a skirt. I had cut and pinned everything where it needed to be sewn a long time ago but hadn't done the actual sewing. I forgot about it and planned on wearing the skirt today. As I was putting the skirt on this morning, I realized that it still needed to be sewn and frantically sewed it before school. Luckily, I was able to finish sewing it quickly and have sufficient time to get ready!

This look was all about layers; I layered a cream, knit sweater over a simple black tank and grabbed a faux leather jacket to layer over my sweater. A plum-colored, knit scarf topped all of my layers off. I grabbed a few rings and gray lipstick from my dresser to add to the look. Classic sunglasses and combat boots (in addition to my faux leather jacket) added a cool vibe to my otherwise sweet look. Vintage-inspired socks tucked into my boots kept my feet nice and warm through out the day.
