outfit du jour: guiding star

This is one of those outfits that just doesn't translate in photos. At least that's what I'm telling myself. The skirt actually has a gold metallic tint, so I'm not sure why it's looking so red in some pictures. Anyway, this skirt turned out to be kind of big on me, but I love it anyway. Now I just have to figure out a better way to style it so you guys will actually understand why I love it.

  4. I've noticed metallics seem to require extra-good photography skills (I personally don't have these). But I can kind of see what you mean in the first picture. Your skirt will be great for Christmastime. I could see it with a slightly loose-fitting white tee, tucked in, in the summertime. Those boots are cute and look pretty comfy, to boot (no pun intended).

  8. I think it's interesting how sometimes outfits look so different in photos than they do in the mirror. I like this one though--especially those booties paired with that skirt!
