Nice Day for a Walk in a Midi

Last time I showed you some midi skirts you can buy from the internet right now. Today I wanted to show you how I wore this fantastic wood-print midi skirt I snagged on Ebay a couple months ago.

After a rain and a cold snap that lasted a few days, it finally warmed up enough to take advantage of the scenery just blocks from where I live with my boyfriend. There are marshes close enough to make them a part of my every day life, and I love that. It's a little bit of vacation without leaving home. A lot of the trees around here sport a curly coat of Spanish Moss. It makes the atmosphere all at once romantic and spooky.


How do you feel about pouch belts? They're not quite fanny packs, a little more interesting than a belt. I put my Fitbit in it! I found it on sale at Target during the winter and was intrigued. I wasn't looking for a belt, but it was simple enough to be an easy way to try the trend, and for only $5, why not? 



There's a quiet neighborhood where people have things like rope swings in their front yard. It's painfully adorable... and fun!


My hair has lost almost all its pink! Definitely going to put some more (maybe a different) color in this week!




In the middle of this neighborhood is a little path that leads down to the marsh. 



 


I got some rose gold goin' on in ma rangs today! One is a <3 heart and the other is a thick band. I don't normally wear many rings, but I'd like to start working on my collection a bit more.


Remember that white crew neck tee I bought from StyleMint? This is it! 



These heels are very stable and pretty comfortable. When I got these from Alloy many years ago, they were olive with a bit of a gold sheen. Now, in these pictures, I can see a leopard print! I've literally never noticed that before now. Love these shoes!


This clutch is another really great thrift store find. Real leather! It has a chain on the inside to wear it as a shoulder bag! Also, it's like a bigger version of my belt pouch. I suppose the idea of a belt pouch is to put cash, cards, key in it and be off, but what about your phone? There's no way that would fit.
