Harmonics

shirt, & vintage biker jacket: my mom's, skirt, & shoes: goodwill
This outfit may in fact be my go-to outfit, as it is said in the blogging community. I love how I feel wearing long skirts, plus this vintage biker's jacket. Not to toot my own horn, but I just feel cool. I'm sure you girls know what I'm talking about; even if you don't want to admit it! ;) I got this uber long skirt at Goodwill on Saturday and thought I'd style it today. I can't wait for spring - I have a feeling I'm going to be looking for a lot of thin, flowy maxi skirts like this!

But anywho, it's February 1st! I'm not all that entirely excited for Valentine's Day as my readers know because of the current situation in my live - but maybe I can find a way to enjoy it any way! Who knows... Maybe I'll just buy myself a box of chocolates? Yeah. I'll do that.

A few more things: I want to start writing on my blog more real, more myself. Is that okay with you all? I want this to be more then "look at my outfits", then switch to the next style/fashion blog. You know? Also, even though I'm pretty booked time-wise, I want to try some different types of post. I'd love it if someone could suggest something that they'd be interested in. I've been wanting to do a "Looks I Love" type column, or even a music column. But please suggest stuff. It would make me happy. :)

My giveaway is still going on, as well! By entering, you could win an adorable straw vintage 60s purse! Go for it! You never know who might win! You have till February 5th! And finally, I think next time I'm home alone on a weekend (which will probably happen undoubtedly soon), I want to change my layout either a lot or a little. You know me; I get bored. And I have blog layout OCD. 'Kay. Cool. x

  10. Wow you look great. I'm not sure I could do the maxi skirt as I'm pretty short but it looks fab with the leather jacket. x

  11. What a lovely outfit! I've never really enjoyed wearing maxi skirts, my self, but I love leather jackets! Mine is totally one of my most used go-to pieces, and yours is really great!

    I know what you mean about wanting to write more besides just outfits. I really want to write more about my life. I really struggle with that since I'm so private - a lot of the time it's just easier to talk only about my outfit. :)

  12. It's funny, the first thing I thought when I saw this outfit was, "she looks so COOL!" and then you said that you felt cool in this outfit, haha!
    This really is a wonderful outfit, and totally makes me want to try out longer skirts!

  14. Looks great - the jacket is the perfect partner in crime for this skirt.

    More you-ness sounds like something I'd love to read :)

  15. This look is totally cool!! I love it! And I think that blogs that offer more than just clothes are awesome. You learn and appreciate that person more rather then just a catalog model appreciation. Do it!

  18. I LOVE that ring!

    Also, do you have any single friends to celebrate Valentine's Day with? That's what I always used to do :) And we'd buy each other chocolates.

    And you should definitely write about whatever you like!

  22. I do love the proportions of this outfit! I am terrified of long skirts, but how cool you look in them makes me want to try them out!

    I'd totally be interested in a music column as I am always looking for new music to listen to and bands to discover. And from peeking at your "currently listening to..."s, we have similar taste in music!
