Let a smile be your umbrella

Outfit Details:
Dream of the Crop Cardigan in Mint: ModCloth (other colors here)
Umbrella print skirt: dELiA*s (old)
Black sheer tights: Urban Outfitters
Lady in Rad Boot in Ink: ModCloth
Black camisole & hat: Target

These photos are actually from a few weeks ago, before our first big snowfall hit, but I totally forgot to post them!  This is one of the few skirts I own, and I like that despite its quirky pattern, it's kind of subtle and has the ability to be dressed down a little bit.  And I essentially live in these cropped cardigans.  I want one in every color, and it annoys me that they're clearly a wholesale item and I can't get them anywhere else!  They're warm, the perfect length and come in the prettiest colors.

I actually drove this week for the first time in like, two months.  I had been taking driving lessons (and need to get back to that), but with everything that had been happening (and the fact that my now-ex had been helping with teaching me how to drive), I just kind of needed to take a little hiatus.  I still have a lot of anxiety about driving in general, but I grew a pair and faced my fears -- and discovered what I always discover: that it's never nearly as bad as you anticipate it'll be.  Plus, a trip to Home Depot (for paint samples) and Panera was a good motivator.  :) 

Have a great Thursday!

  1. nice!:)) xo

  2. I adore that cropped sweater and you look great in it! I think Pin Up Girl Clothing sells some like that too, but I'm not sure it would be any cheaper...

    You are a doll in this entirely thing though, truly!

  3. I feel the same way about those cropped cardigans! I'm always on the hunt for them but can never find anything comparable anywhere else. Bah!

    Good for you for getting back to driving! It's funny, I both love and hate driving. I feel like I practically live in my car and would LOVE to drive less ;)

    This outfit is adorable! I love the umbrella print and your boots!

  4. Great.

  5. I love the fit of that skirt! :)

  6. I NEED a cardi like that in every color, wish the sleeves were full length though. You look adorable in this outfit!

  7. you cutie pie. that hat is terrific. | blog

  8. Black white and mint are always such a lovely combination!! I am loving this skirt, such a fun print :)
    I used to have really bad driving anxiety (anxiety about everything actually) but I'm glad I started, I took lessons and I'm a pretty good driver! It's been 4 years and only 2 speeding tickets!

  9. Not as classy as ModCloth, but around spring/summer time Old Navy sells an abundance of cropped cardis! (I only know because I work there haha)
    Gorgeous as always! You constantly inspire me to wear more dresses in all the seasons, even though I can never seem to get out of my jeans haha.
