In Your Hands

Bah! What has happened to my time?! It's 8pm right now and I'm still running around! I guess I'm not really complaining though... I would rather be too busy than have nothing to do! 

I've had this skirt for ages, it's a few sizes too big so I hardly wear it but I really felt like being a lady today so I tucked it under my shirt and belted it to make it stay up... it kinda worked. Well, there were lots of readjustments all day. But I didn't flash anyone (yay!). I'm really loving pairing plain tee's with fancy skirts lately. It's such a cute juxtaposition, and I love anything unexpected!

Tee: American Apparel
Skirt: Thrifted
Belt: Gap
Shoes: Aldo
Watch: Guess
Bow Headband: Le Chateau
Self Made Necklace
Lovely: Animated movies! I'm heading out to see Despicable Me right now and I am SO excited! I swear, I'm still just a scrawny, rambunctious, little 5 year old inside!

  3. After seeing how you so often wear basic tees with many of your outfits I am comepletly inspired to get me some...I hardly have any basic shirts because I thought they were boring..but not how you wear them!!

  11. Louise,

    I tumbled into your blogland at just the right time!

    I have a white skirt nearly identical to yours (that I also picked up at a thrift shop) and I just couldn't figure out how to wear without looking too dowdy.

    This morning, I played complete copycat and look almost as cute as you. Merci!

  15. I have a couple of skirts that are too big for me but I still love. It's the most annoying thing!

  16. I love this entire look on you. The grey t-shirt brings out a little casual action, but it's still dressed up...and the skirt is CUTE!

  17. I think this totally worked! I'm a fan of pairing casual tees with dressier skirts too--it's a little unexpected and fun!

  20. Just discovered your blog via O My Heart! I love dressing up in tees:) If I had an unlimited budget I'm sure the majority would go towards amassing a gluttonous tshirt collection:) Love the periwinkle color with your cute skirt! We're new followers..
