The Show Must Go On
I’m not sure if you can tell in these photos, but it was actually sleeting out while I was taking them. Haha. It didn’t start that way, but about 2 minutes into it, Mother Nature took a not very nice turn. But hey, “The show must go on!” And I really liked this outfit.. and only had so much daylight left before photo-taking was no longer an option.
However, freezing my butt off for a little while outside…was also a good test of just how warm this faux leather Blaque Label skirt actually is. I had worn it several months ago in this post, and I had a sneaking suspicion it would hold up well in some chilly temperatures. And I was correct! It was wonderfully warm! This skirt was from my first time trying out the #ifchic24 event…where you can get designer clothing for almost free. It was a good reminder that I need to start collecting my Ifchic coins again! (Click here for more info on that event.)
I was also pleasantly surprised how well these booties worked for walking on ice-covered roads/sidewalks. It’s always nice to have one pair of shoes in your arsenal, that can be counted on to not contribute to you falling flat on your face. Haha.
This was also a good chance for me to break out my fleece-lined socks from Kushyfoot. They are wonderfully soft and warm. However, I wish they covered my entire leg…given the crazy cold weather I’ve been dealing with. Haha. Also, these don’t have the massaging soles, like the other legwear from Kushyfoot. But fleece-lined is certainly a nice touch! I’ll probably be pairing these with pants, for the most part.
Who else has frozen their butt off in the name of taking photos for their blog? And has anyone else participated in the #ifchic24 event, recently? Let me know in the comments!

I love that scarf and skirt together – so classy and elegant! Just perfect!
Also, I don’t photograph outside when it’s cold, so no freezing for me. But then again I would probably get hypothermia if I were to photograph outside during the winter here, being that I wear like four-five layers of clothes just to walk to work. hahaha
Thank you so much, Mona! It is definitely colder by you than it by me! And your indoor photos always look so lovely…I wouldn’t freeze either if I was as good at indoor photos as you. 🙂
You are such a trooper! :o) Cold is temporary, but stylish is forever. Ha Ha
I really enjoyed seeing your fashion “artistry” with this ensemble. What really got my attention was your pretty scarf and your gorgeous midi skirt!
Haha! I like that, “Cold is temporary, but stylish is forever!” Thank you so much, Kathi! 🙂
You are so brave, Lindsey! If there is the slightest hint of precipitation, I gather up all my equipment, go home, and have a cup of coffee to console myself. You can’t even tell it’s sleeting, and your face doesn’t betray the bad weather.
I really like this skirt–it’s so chic!–and I’m glad it held up well in this weather! And oh man, fleece-lined tights are the way to go. Urban Outfitters has some good full-length ones that I wear on the regular.
Haha, sunglasses were being worn to hide my strong dislike of the weather (and to keep the precipitation out of them)…which came in handy. Thank you so much, Devinne! And I’m going to have to check out Urban Outfitters! 🙂
Raises hand! I freeze my butt off all the time haha. I seriously wish everything was fleece lined in the winter. Oh how that would help so much lol. You look so pretty and kudos to sticking it out in the sleet!
Haha! Glad I’m not alone! And yes, EVERYTHING should be fleece lined! Thank you so much, Amanda! 🙂
This look is great! Really digging that skirt!
I have definitely been FREEZING for the blog recently. We got hit with a huge snow storm yesterday and i decided to go out early to get some shots before anyone else was around haha. Crazy? Probably.
Thank you so much, Lee! And glad I’m not alone when it comes to freezing for the sake of pictures, haha. I think we’re all a little crazy. 😉
Love this scarf!!! Great ensemble and inspiring! Ugh, this time of year can be so tricky with photos! You did awesome with getting the job done, or forcing the show to go on! XO
Thank you so much, Lauren! This scarf was less than $5 too! 🙂
I love this outfit, the scarf and skirt are so pretty! xx
Thank you so much! 🙂
So cute!! Love this look. <3
Thank you so much, Kathy! 🙂
This scarf paired with the cream skirt is such a wonderful combination! I love the pattern on it.
Aw, thank you so much! 🙂
I love this look! That skirt is such a pretty piece. The boots are awesome too, I like the gold zipper detail!
Thank you so much, Kiki! I’m a big fan of the gold zipper, too…it’s inspiring me to wear a lot more gold accessories than I normally would. 🙂
