Sunday Skirt

Sundays in our house is "church day" as my boys refer to it.  We opt not to play the loud, obnoxious video games to keep the noise and hyper-activity level down (this is my favorite Sunday tradition), we go to church, we come home and spend time together as a family...Sundays are good days.  Sunday is also the magic day of the week I will always need a skirt or dress.  We dress up for church. It's funny because I don't think I would have a single need for a pencil skirt if we didn't go to church every Sunday.  My day job certainly doesn't require them and I'd look a little corporate at after-school pick-up wearing one, so thank you to Sunday for allowing me a reason to wear pencil skirts (and to buy them)!

This week I wore a pencil skirt I was able to score for a great deal a while back.  I love the skirt but the color has stumped me a bit.  I don't wear a lot of olive green.  I've thought about returning this skirt on several occasions but could never go through with it because I just really liked the style and fabric.  This week I picked up this pretty little thing that happened to match the skirt perfectly:


And then this look was born:

First day curling my shorter do was a little challenging...I definitely lost some length with that cut.  I'm liking it though!

I wanted to say thank you to all those who took the time to check out my blog sale...thanks!  I was able to sell about half of what I listed with the rest of the items still available for purchase.  Check it out HERE.

Hope you have a great day!
