By all accounts, I’d say it was a successful weekend. Mega shopping trip on Saturday for LDK and Charlie’s engagement photo shoot yielded one of my fave looks for fall, a sheer top layered with a military inspired cardigan, skinny jeans, and boots {can’t wait to see the results!}. Other things I did this weekend:

  • Went grocery shopping
  • Cleaned my apartment
  • Got mega blisters from wearing new shoes {flats, of all things} out shopping
  • Watched the Giants games
  • Kicked ass in fantasy football
  • Hosted a brunch
  • Crashed and burned by taking a 2.5 hour nap on Sunday {I deserved it}
  • Indulged in some yummy hot chocolate
  • FINALLY ordered a flip cam.
  • Mad Men finale — Did you watch? What did you guys think?

And in other {quasi/related} news, I am IN LOVE with this outfit:

Every. Single. Thing. About it. I wish I was taller so that I could wear this kind of skirt. In general this length scares me because it could so easily be frumpy. I’m 5’3″ and unless they’re short, skirts with volume kind of overwhelm my frame. I have the same issue with maxi dresses. le sigh. Maybe I’ll try it anyway.

I so enjoy reading the weekly undeniable style-isms and all that goes with them. Keep up the good work, style maven.

I love your blog! It’s elegant and unique. Consider me your newest follower 🙂
BTW, being tall is not all it’s cracked up to be. Trust me! At least at my age since all the boys my age want to date the short little girls. But agreed, that skirt (and the sweater) is lovely.

Edit: That skirt (and the sweater) *ARE* lovely.

Haylee, thank you! And, I think we’ll be fast friends. I’m notorious for typos in posts…I’m thinking about offering prizes to readers who find them. lol.

First off, i love your blog! In all honesty, I will probably spend the rest of my Sunday night reading it:)

Anyway, I adore that photo and have it saved in my inspiration file. I’m only 5’2 and I thought this length would make look super frumpy but iF i wear my highest heels I can pull it off(or at least I think I’m pulling it off!)
