Greetings on this chilly day! Currently it is very cold out, but the snow stopped yesterday. The wind, however, was TERRIBLE all day! We finally got that wave of bad weather our American friends had a few weeks ago, and I’m glad it’s over. I had a meeting with the director of student ministries at my church on Friday because I’d like to start volunteering with the youth group there. We just met at a coffee shop, but I still wanted to look somewhat presentable. I needed to show her that I can dress casually, while still looking put together and appropriate for spending time with teenagers. Since it was cold out, I opted for a maxi skirt with lots of layers underneath. I paired it with a slightly oversized, vintage sweater and belted it.
Apologies for the not so pretty background…it was bitterly cold and this was the only sheltered spot outside at my house.
Sooooo….I hadn’t washed my hair in days when I took these photos. I wash my hair every other day, but sometimes I forget when I washed it last and accidentally go 3 days between washes. This was one of those days. BUT the point of this shot is to show the glasses David got me for Christmas. I love them!
In order to make this outfit practical for winter I wore thermal tights and socks under the skirt. On top I wore a tank top, long sleeved shirt and the sweater. Since the sweater is older the weave has sort of stretched out making it not very warm. I chose to wear a belt because the sweater would have been too sloppy if left alone.
I’ve been wearing this skirt so much lately, since I only have 2 maxi skirts. I’d really like to get some more but don’t want to spend a fortune. Has anyone had luck buying inexpensive, but good quality, skirts online? Mine are better suited to summer, so I’d like some with a thicker fabric. I’ve been eyeballing this one for months, but I’m not sure about the price.
