Magazine Feature | Brocade Simplicity

Normally, I go right into my outfit posts. Today is different.

I would like to announce a project mentioned in my Tour through Blogland post: my first magazine feature.
You can read the whole article here.

I want to thank Victoria for the amazing writing and this incredible opportunity with Cliche Magazine (that has still left me a bit shell shocked). She makes me sound like a real big-time blogger!

I've been meaning to spill the beans about this for awhile, but am finally able to share it with you guys. New year, new (& great) beginnings. Thank you all for being so welcoming, supportive, and inspirational. It has given me the courage to do things I've only dreamed about.


*** We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming ***

Cable knit turtleneck | Ralph Lauren (thrifted)
Pleated brocade skirt | UO (old)
Silver heels | BCBG
Spike necklace | Baublebar (gifted by Simone)

It was raining all weekend that I was worried I wouldn't get outfit photos for you this Monday! When the rain finally stopped, I hustled manfriend and me out the door. I wanted something that would display and complement my Secret Santa necklace and still comfy. It was surprisingly warm after the rain so I took advantage and changed up the outfit last minute for this brocade skirt. I love the colors, because I think the light blue/gold match the necklace very well.

I love the coziness of this sweater. It makes any outfit instantly more comfy casual.
