There is something about this skirt that makes me throw my cares to the wind, and just have fun wearing it…no matter what’s happening or what the weather might be. And this is especially true now that I have this cute ice cream cone purse to pair with it!

The sun was shining this day, and it was warmer than usual. However, the wind was rather brisk…and I’m not going to lie, I was a bit chilled. I wasn’t going to let that stop me from having some fun with this skirt, though..even if there is still snow on the ground! (The title of this post should be Swings, Skirts, Snow & Sunshine…but I felt that was too long. And I’m sick of the snow. Haha.) I’m pretty sure this skirt has been on my blog more than any other piece of clothing. I really need to do a roundup post someday featuring it (stay tuned). It’s surprisingly versatile…and it’s the best twirling skirt in my closet!

Icecream cone purse

And how cute is my new little ice cream cone purse I love it! The online clothing site NewChic sent it to me recently, and I couldn’t wait to show it off. Other than twirly skirts, there is nothing I love more than a cute novelty purse! And this purse from NewChic is only $7! For that price I didn’t really know what to expect for quality…but I am very impressed with it. The only downfall to this purse is that it is small. (But that’s the case with all novelty bags, usually.) I can fit my phone, lipstick, compact, money & ID in it…which is really all you need, right? And this won’t be the last time you hear me talk about NewChic, I have some other goodies I’ll be showing off soon too! You can also use coupon “20off1574” to apply for a 20% discount off everything on the NewChic website!

Does anyone else have a piece of clothing that makes them want to throw caution to the wind…and twirl like a mad man and play on swings in the snow? Haha. Let me know in the comments!

  1. This is such a cute outfit. I love the little details. I’m so excited for Spring. I’m excited to wear a dress or skirt without thick tights for the first time ever and show off some leg! It was so nice here yesterday. It was really hard for me to not go to the mall and buy practically everything cute I saw. I’m feeling so brave right now to be me and it’s wonderful! And you’ve been a great influence on me, just seeing your styles and your replies to my comments. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you so much, Patrick! Haha, I hear ya! I like tights and all, but it’s nice to take a break from them too. 🙂 It was super nice here yesterday too, and today is actually quite nice too…it makes me want to order a whole of bunch of spring clothes as well. Haha.
      And oh my goodness, Patrick! That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said. Thank you so much! You just made my entire day. 🙂

  2. Love this lemon yellow cardigan. It’s so cheerful and I really like this fan print green skirt. It looks so good on you. I have some swing dancing outfits and fringe skirts I like to wear that I like to twirl in. I love your twirling photos by the way. They are super fun!


  3. This color combo is fantastic and you look so cute while having fun! The ice cream purse is betond adorable! Novelty purses are the best! I bet you’ll be gettijg lots of use out of this one in the coming summer months. You know, I acually have this skirt and have still not worn it yet!!!


  4. Such a cute outfit on you! Love the green and yellow combo. You look so beautiful! Loving that clutch with your outfit. It’s so so pretty. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Christina! I really love this ice cream cone purse too! And JollyHollieDay has such cute stuff – I have a couple more brooches I’m going to be ordering from her too. 🙂
