Flirty Friday

Woo hoo we made it to Friday!! This upcoming weekend is promising to be rather epic and awesome and I'm in a fun mood, so I chose my favorite flirty jean skirt from summer and gave it a little winter spin today!  It's threatening snow later, so the lovely fake Sherpa boots I have from Old Navy were also a priority.  Of course, now that I wore them, it probably won't snow.

It is FBFF and the questions are all about trends coming up for spring and summer. I was going to post my answers to the questions but really, while I do pay attention to trends and even try to incorporate ones that I like into my wardrobe, I don't really consider myself a "trendy" dresser.  I like wearing what makes me feel good and I figure that is what is most important.  Also, I like taking baby steps with new trends - seeing what is really going to stick around before I spend my money. So anyway, I'm going to sit this one out I think, but I am curious to see what some of the other bloggers have to say on the subject.  Check out Modly Chic if you're curious like I am!  Katy from Modly Chic has also started a FB group for Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, contact her for more information.

 Back to my outfit, I have to laugh, these leggings are kind of ridic.  I got them at DSW right after Christmas and they were packaged in a way where I really couldn't see what they were like, but guessed that a Sm/Medium should fit me just fine.  Well, I haven't pulled them out to wear them until today, shame on me, so when I took them out this morning and unfolded them and all that jazz I discovered they are super long.  Like I have no idea who these were designed for other than some mutant two legged giraffe.  I'm not joking.  They fit fine otherwise but man are these suckers long.  I checked the packaging and it doesn't say anything about being extra long or something.  I made them work, kind of folded them up a bit which you can't see because of my boots, but yeah.  They're interesting!

And in the picture below I was feeling silly and decided to show off how fun and swishy this skirt is.  It's fun to wear it when it's cold outside, usually it sits in a box sadly longing for a warm summer day!  I'm glad I've discovered new ways to use it!

I am so excited for the weekend I just might burst.  Hopefully I'll see some of you local gals at the MN Fashion Blogger meet up tomorrow!  Also for you local girls, the Two Birds ladies are having an event at b. (a resale shop) from 3:00 to 5:00 tomorrow too.  It's worth checking out, the store itself is cute on it's own, but then throw in Megan and Nora Bird and it's crazy awesome!

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!  Next week is the Layer Up challenge!  Should be fun!
