Shop the look:

I absolutely love this green skirt, with its little velvet fans. And I really wanted to show you all how fun this skirt from ModCloth is. So, I had a little dance party in the driveway all by myself. Haha. I included some blooper photos of me really looking like a fool, (they’re at the end of the post) to show how about 90 percent of the pictures taken actually looked. (Hence, why the neighbors are a bit concerned about the state of my mental health.)

As I mentioned in my last post, my husband is already over on the East Coast and I am still in Wisconsin packing up our belongings at my parents’ house. I will be leaving Friday morning, but until then I’ve been attempting to take my own outfit photos with my camera’s timer. My parents have a house in a little suburb, and their driveway is very visible to everyone driving by and several nearby homes. So, let’s just say I had been giving them some free entertainment these past couple days, as I flail around like a maniac in front of my camera. Haha.

Jane Austen

Jane Austen scarf

I had originally started taking pictures with a scarf on. However, with all the twirling and so-called dancing, I became too warm to keep it on for the rest of the pictures. This scarf actually has an excerpt from Pride and Prejudice printed on it. I love, love, love Pride and Prejudice. So, I couldn’t resist purchasing this scarf. (For the record, the part that’s printed on this scarf s where Mr. Darcy is explaining to Elizabeth when he fell in love with her, and owning up to the wonderful things he did for Lydia and Jane. So, the best part.) This scarf is also very warm and very well-made.

I love my polka dot tights very dearly, as well. However, after having a bit of a Marilyn Monroe moment in one set of pictures (I did not look even a fraction as cute as she did, though. Haha.), I discovered these tights have a very large run in them. Unfortunately, ModCloth does not currently carry this particular set of tights anymore. So, if anyone knows where to find polka dot tights similar to these, please let me know in the comments!

Blessedly, this will be my last outfit post I do by myself. This will also be the last outfit post I do for a couple weeks. I plan to have a Featured Fashionista published next week, and then possibly a recap of my road trip to the East Coast the week after. I do plan to share pictures on my Instagram and Facebook accounts if you want to follow me on either of those to get the latest updates on my big move.

Thanks for bearing with me on these last couple posts, everyone!

  1. hahaha you are adorable! I love the uniqueness in these photos:-) What a great post and that skirt is so lovely.


  2. Love the vintage vibe here! Adore the skirt, polka dot tights, and fab shoes! You look stunning in this.

  3. I have this skirt and it’s seriously the BEST! You look wonderful (I remember the pics from Instagram)…those shoes are amazing. PS the blooper pics are amaze-balls!

    1. Haha, thank you! The blooper pics were too silly not to share. I remember your pics from Instagram as well, Lauren! You inspired me to break out my red heels the next time I wear this skirt! 🙂

  4. Gorgeous skirt, and I’m in love with those shoes! Are they comfy? Every time I see them I want them, but the last time I bought shoes from ModCloth I ended up returning them 🙁

    I totally get you when it comes to the neighbors, hehe. That’s how I feel too! Fun pics though – especially your bloopers!

    1. Hi Jennifer! These shoes have quite the heel on them, so they aren’t the most comfortable shoes for walking much or standing for long periods of time. However, they aren’t too bad given their height. Mine are about a half size too big, so, I was able to fit inserts in them and that has helped a lot, too.

      Haha! And thank you, I did enjoy taking these pictures…even if they didn’t turn out too great!

  5. You look amazing in this skirt! Really like this color on you and I can tell how much you love it because you are beaming with light:) Awesome outfit:)


    1. Thank you, Joanna! I had a bit too much fun doing this little photo shoot by myself, haha.

  6. Your blog is absolutely enjoyable. Your outfit is great, especially the skirt and shoes. For the polka dot nylons try: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/clothing/jukebox-tights-in-the-pony . These nylons are almost exact to the pair that you are wearing. I found your blog through The Dressed Aesthetic blog(Kara Shaw). You both have a lot in common. Has anyone ever told you that you resemble the actress Minnie Driver? You really do look like her. Have fun on your East Coast vacation. I hope that its somewhere in the Southern part of the USA as we have a lot of snow in the Northeastern US right now. I know, I’ve been shoveling it for the past month. Cheers

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my blog, Leslie! I love Kara’s blog! She was actually featured on my blog last month, too. 🙂 I have never been told that I resemble Minnie Driver before, but thank you very much for thinking so! We will be driving through DC and then heading toward NYC, hopefully there isn’t too much snow left by the time I get there. It looks like the temps have been warm, 🙂 Thank you so much, again!
