LLAP

 Tee - Gap, thrifted
Skirt - All Saints
Belt - from my gunmetal Audra Jean harness
Flats - Sam and Libby, thrifted

Necklace close up
 While I did take the weekend off from blogging, I hardly could keep from dressing up! Two new things to the blog. Another All Saints skirt from the same collection as this top and my Live Long and Prosper necklace! I actually bought the necklace awhile ago, but realized belatedly that the shop was on vacation. The necklace has been on my wishlist for awhile. It's more delicate than I expected, but that's actually good in my opinion. I hate heavy jewelry because it tends to get on my nerves by the end of the day. I actually forgot I had this on after awhile. So A+. Also the seller wrote me a personalized note, and wrapped the necklace up in a lovely Science officer blue paper and a box.

The skirt was different than I was expecting. I meant to buy this as a winter skirt and the other for summer. But the fabrics were much different than I expected. I can still toss thick tights on and wear this one for winter, but I felt like a princess floating around in this today. The color inspiration came from a photo I saw on Pinterest, but I've been unable to find the photo since - I don't think I repinned it. Anyway, I keep hearing plaids are big for fall (again) so this skirt happily joined my closet.

This outfit was worn to see the Lion King with a new school friend. I'm making so many friends this year, both on blog and off-blog. It's very exciting!

Edited to add: The front details are hitched/pick-ups.  Check out the skirt on the actual site for better detail shots.

  1. What a cool skirt and it looks awesome with this green top! This green is a great color on you :)

    Ok, I am going to sound dumb by asking, but the Live Long and Prosper is Star Trek right?

  10. Love me some ST! I did not know they had necklaces like that. A long time ago I bought a pin that looks like a communicator in the later ST's. I am a total ST nerd!
    I love that color of green. I bought a cardigan that color after I saw someone wear it on their blog. Now I need to find some plaid to wear with it like you did. Love your outfit.
