I received a lot of comments on this skirt when I posted my capsule pieces. Everyone seemed to love the skirt! I admit, I do love the colors, which is why I bought it. However, the light, floatiness of it makes it difficult for me to wear, and I don't think the proportions of the skirt are right for my body: it hits me at a wider part of my waist and a strange section of my knees, and the pleats add volume to my hips where I really don't need any. This is the first time I have worn something tucked into the skirt and belted. I rarely tuck tops into my skirts, but the few times that I have, I like it only when I have the belt in place. Unfortunately, the belt doesn't like to STAY in place, and I was adjusting it all day.
Oh, and please ignore the strange stripes on my legs in the photo -- those are from my rain boots, and they were there for most of the evening! Does anyone have any tips on how to get those types of marks to fade faster?
I realized today that it is 2 weeks until dear fiance and I have the food tasting for our wedding! The tasting is on St. Patrick's Day, and I can't wait -- the catering company is supposed to be amazing! (I think I'd better remind myself to have a light breakfast and lunch, because I'm sure I still be stuffing myself that night!)
