HOLIDAY LOOKS...THE GOLDEN SKIRT & WUW

This Fall, I have loved a good golden hue. A few weeks ago, I told you about the skirt I had ordered from Amazon for family pictures. I was really worried how the skirt with a look, but it is phenomenal. It’s an elastic waist band and not only comes with a black belt but a chiffon sash in the same color. Since I tied the front of this denim shirt, I opted not to even use the sash and I love the way it turned out. Today, our fashion prompt at TBB is holiday looks and I thought since I wore this for our holiday family Christmas card pictures this past weekend that it was the perfect outfit to showcase. A great price that packs a fabulous festive punch!
AND it's What's Up Wednesday too!


 

Can’t wait to get out Christmas cards, which many of you will be receiving. Then, you can see how I coordinated Mr. Nine’s and our 3 boy’s outfits.

  2. You nailed this look Andrea! Love this yellow skirt and chambray shirt combo. We are making cookies this holiday season too and I don't even know where to begin! We have baked before but first year that my son and I will do it for the holidays together as a family tradition. Do you have a suggestion for which recipe to try? And how time flies by, huh? Your youngest almost 21. I can't even imagine how must that feel like. But I hope his birth day is everything and more. Happy early birthday to your son! I hope your week is going well and happy Wednesday!

  20. Yes please on the prize winning PB fudge! I adore that skirt. I picked up my first mustard piece yesterday at Anthro--a cardigan. Woo hoo. Soft and cozy. The kids grow up way too fast, don't they? 16 lit trees! Eek! I hope they're all on timers. That's what I do! I have 8 plus garland, wreaths, etc. No batteries though. I'm too lazy! I haven't done any baking or wrapping yet, just the ordering. The snow and twinkly lights must be so pretty! Stay warm, my friend! Hugs!

  54. Your gold skirt was a great find. I'm hesitant to buy things like that on Amazon--you've proven it can be done. Congrats on your "little one" turning 21! P.S. Not that I would have that many trees, but most of our decor is packed it feels a bit lonely with only one 9 ft. tree here, boo hoo!

  55. You look stunning in that skirt. I can't wait to show mine off. Though mine is sort of wrinkly in the photos since I had to keep grabbing it to pull it up since we were in sand dunes for our photos. LOVE YOUR LOOK!
