Midwest Charm with Anna

Subtly Festive for the Holidays



Skirt: Forever 21, Cropped Sweater: Forever 21, Pumps: Kelly & Kate (DSW), Bracelet: J.Crew

It’s a bit hard to feel like the holidays are right around the corner with the lack of snow here in Texas but this skirt really had me feeling festive! I am totally in love with A-line style and I also love the look of the deep black against the delicate gold skirt. The red lip in addition to the pearls gave it a fun classy twist that I have every intention of wearing again this upcoming holiday season. The best part about this outfit is that it is currently under $40.00 at Forever 21 (outfit details linked above). Both the gold skirt and the cropped sweater can be worn in many other outfit combinations as well, so it was certainly money well spent.

Of course these pictures come with a little story. They were taken downtown at the Federal Court House in Austin, Texas. My friend Anna and I were checking out the building obsessing over it’s incredible architecture when we were kindly asked to get off of the property. The officer that gave us the boot was so nice but he explained to us that at the risk of us being terrorists (he was very serious),¬†we had to step down. We were allowed on the stairs just not on the building property itself. Apparently you are only allowed up there during business hours! It might be one of those “had to be there” moments, but take my word, it really was quite funny.

I hope everyone is looking forward to a short work week and the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. What are you thankful for?!

Xoxo, Anna
