Style Files: Rainy Days

We are on the home stretch here, folks.  Today marks the first day of the last week of classes. This semester was a tough one and I'm ready for a good long break. I can't wait to get home and start decorating for Christmas!
This skirt is another one that I bought at a thrift store and hemmed. I still have to get the hang of it, but it turned out pretty good for my first time.
Do you recognize this snuggly piece of warmth?  It's actually The Wavy Cowl in Cream which I'm REALLY surprised no one has snatched up.  It's one of my favorites! It's a mixture of stitches which gives off a pretty cool look when wearing it (it's a little washed out in the photo above, my bad).
These photos are from Wednesday - you know the day that was crazy wind and crazy rain? For some reason I thought I could be amazon woman and brave the elements to do some errands.  Well I ended up having to drive 40 mph on the highway because the sheets of rain were flooding the road! Craziness.  All in the name of getting more yarn for the shop! Haha.

Speaking of the shop, if you want to purchase a cowl in time for Christmas all orders need to be made by December 16th. For a guaranteed delivery date of December 24th. Any orders after Dec 16 are not guaranteed.

Also, it's still time to be inquisitive.  Ask me a question!

    2. Gonna check out your etsy shop because I stinkin LOVE all these scarves and whatnot and still haven't bought myself one. I have ONE scarf. And I live in ALASKA!!!! (For realz).
    3. I stinkin LOVE the belt over the skirt! I don't know why in the world, but it really adds so much to a look, it's absolutely darling, and I just never ever would have thought of that myself. So thank you, and I shall try it as well :)
