Skirting the Issue

I rarely wear skirts when the temperature drops below 70, but after cycling through most of my pants, I wanted to shake things up. This Free People skirt was just the right solution! It’s thick material not only holds everything in place (this is what 30 looks like), it manages to keep my bottom half relatively warm when paired with booties. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am an extreme wimp when it comes to the cold, so this skirt is magical to me. I can definitely say I’m looking forward to the ever warming temperature and am very much so looking forward to spring. I know it’s a ways off, but I’m definitely brainstorming outfits already!

Top: Forever 21 (similar) / Skirt: Kate Spade New York / Boots: Sam Edelman (similar) / Purse: Steve Madden (similar)

Kate Spade is a brand I’ve always loved for its handbags. It wasn’t until the last few months I really started honing in on how much I love their clothing as well. From this skirt to¬†this jumpsuit and so much more, I’m fully embracing my all-out crush on Kate Spade. The pieces are kitschy, but also professional and there’s a wonderful balance to them all. What’s your current brand crush?
