Gift wrapped

doll me up boutique

This is the first of many Christmas-y outfits that will be making an appearance here on the blog. My holiday ensembles are usually only seen once a year, so I'm trying to get more use out of them by devoting the rest of the month to yuletide apparel. I'm really getting into separates lately, and when I saw this lovely skirt from Doll Me Up, I knew I wanted to feature it. I have about 15 of these cropped cardigans (they're my absolute favorite and I wear them with everything), but this kelly green color is a brand new addition to my collection. Normally, I wouldn't go for something that so obviously screams "CHRISTMAS!," but I actually ended up liking this outfit a lot – and I'll be able to make lots of other combinations with these pieces.

This taffeta skirt comes in several different colors, and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it is in person. Doll Me Up provides detailed measurements for every item they carry (which is a huge plus when shopping online), and I found this skirt to run true to the size chart provided. Unlike a lot of the pieces they carry, this skirt unfortunately doesn't come in extended sizes – but some of the cropped cardigans do! Both pieces are of great quality for the price, and I love the fact that I can always find good, inexpensive basics at Doll Me Up.
