  1. Great outfit. I've been keeping my eye out for that perfect red piece to add to my wardrobe. So far, all I have is nail polish. You look great!

  2. That color is SUPER SERIOUS. Looks so striking with the muted greys!

  3. the skirt is cool, but the best part of this fit is the scarf and jacket together - perfection

  4. I love that skirt. My red pencil skirt is probably my favorite skirt ever.

  5. I really love that pop of red. A red skirt is such a great staple in your closet!

  6. I love how vibrant your skirt is! And that cowl is so cute. Makes me wish I were better at knitting.

  7. Look at that dash of color!
    Congrats on your last first day. And on the bagel. Bagel eating is always a good thing.

  8. Again a pop of color, I really like the concept!

  9. I love it. It looks warm AND snazzy. Did you end up wearing it just as is, or did you have to do any alterations?

    Also, I would like to rate your posts, but I'm uncertain where "bee's knees" falls in relation to "fantastic." Please clarify.

  10. I love this skirt! I've been dying to find one like this -- I really love the way you've styled it!

  11. I love the color of that skirt and am totally jealous of those grey boots.

  12. To do list: buy red skirt.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. YOU knitted that cowl? Man I wish I would just freakin' learn how to knit. You have just given me yet another reason!
    Loving the red skirt to brighten up the rest of your great outfit. Stripes make me smile.

    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  14. skirt boot combo...genius!

    warmest regards-
