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. That purse is just waaay too cute! 🙂

    Just like you.. I love these kind of pics with the snow, but I really really really would like to have spring and summer show up! 😛

    1. Thank you so much, Tassia! It’s warming up a little bit now…no more snow at least! 🙂

  2. Cute post I love little novelty bags! Your outfit looks super fun and carefree!

  3. Love this whole outfit! The skirt is gorgeous, and that brooch is adorable. It reminds me of the Little shop of Horrors plant. I love it! The purse is amazing as well. I can’t believe it’s only $7! Amazing outfit!

    1. Aw, thank you, Lili! Haha and actually that’s exactly what my pin was made after! I honestly have never seen Little Shop of Horrors (but it’s on my list, now), but that is what Holly had designed him after! And isn’t it crazy that the purse is only $7??

  4. These are such fun colors and your cardigan is so adorable with that vintage flare.
