Channeling sunshine

It seems we can't get the sun to stick around for more than a day lately.  Woke up to gray skies and wet weather once again.  Since it just seemed depressing and yuck outside, I decided I needed something to brighten my day and maybe others around me.  So I chose to wear the fabulous Shabby Apple skirt that I was lucky enough to win in a Twitter contest.  I couldn't believe I won - they pretty much just asked what you would wear with the Taxicab skirt here.  I said something in a bright pink or fuchsia.  And next thing I knew, they said it would be mine!

So, of course, I paired it with something pink today!  I seriously am in love with this skirt though, it fits me like a glove and this bright yellow color is going to be super awesome for the rest of the spring and summer! The length is nice too.  Overall I am super impressed.  I have never tried anything from Shabby Apple before, but I can tell you I will definitely be looking to them more in the future!

It was chilly and damp as I said, so I did add a sweater over my pink top.  Oddly enough both the pink top and the sweater are from LOFT.  Not bought together mind you, in fact the top is another hand me down.  Just a fun coincidence I guess!

I think this last picture is my "I can't believe I won" face or something.  Sometimes I'm goofy and I'm not going to hide that fact from all of you!

My favorite radio station is announcing the performers for a big outdoor concert that we go to every year today and then tickets go on sale.  I have never had trouble getting tickets, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway.  I also hope we like the people who will be performing this year!  And I hope the weather i better this year, last year it rained.  It was a lot like it is today in fact.  Sunshine, come play with us please!

Outfit rundown:
Sweater and pink top - LOFT (thrifted and handed down)
Skirt - Shabby Apple (won in giveaway)
Shoes - DSW
Necklace - Charming Charlie

*Shabby Apple paid me nothing, the opinions on the skirt are mine and mine alone and it was won in a legit Twitter contest sponsored by Shabby Apple*

  8. Such a cute skirt on you! And, despite it being in a completely crazy color (and I don't like color for myself even...), I can see a million different ways to wear it. You're lucky for winning!

    I second you on being tired of this weather. AT LEAST the rain is helping things get greened up. That's about all I can say for it.
