Wearing: Tatted Tides Skirt

Monday, October 11, 2010

So, I wish I'd had time to put together something a little more creative than this, but honestly, today's been one of those days...

1) doing research and sketching for a client meeting on Tuesday to discuss dress designs (a wedding with SIX bridesmaids!)

2) an on-line phone meeting concerning my super-duper BIG STEP and

3) ya know...all the usual stuff, like washing the clothes and feeding kids and making library runs and...and...and...

Honestly, I didn't know what to do with this ridiculously ruffled skirt except to play it down with scuffed Nine West boots and American Eagle plaid...but, whatevs, it got me through the day, so guess I should quit complainin', huh?

(Anthro Tatted Tides Skirt and Looping Lanes belt, AE shirt, Nine West boots)


  1. Could your wardrobe be any cuter?
    I'll answer that: nope.

    Still excited to hear about your big news... when are you gonna share???

    Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

  2. I. love. your. outfit. Seriously! The belt definitely makes it...I never would have thought to pair that skirt with boots and a plaid shirt. I don't think I could pull this look off, but it looks amazing on you!

  3. Sounds like you may have a few things going on in your life!! ha ha
    Love the skirt!

  4. The Tatted Tides skirt is beautiful. I don't think I have ever seen it before, but this is such a perfect pairing for it. Just stunning!

  5. yes vappu dress is the name. thanks you are too kind! i love seeing your anthro looks. and i really wanted that skirt!

  6. Oh, Kristina, I love the way you paired that uber girly skirt with the lumberjack plaid top! It looks terrific.

    And seriously, when ARE you going to tell us what your super duper big step is? I'm dying to know!

  7. lol Kristina, I think this is super creative. I tried on that skirt and didn't know what to do with it! But you made the exuberant ruffles feel down to earth and easy! It's fantastic!


  8. Girl, your thrown together outfit is awesome. I think you are a styling genius! And do tell already with the BIG thing, it's killing me!

  9. I think your outfit is really cute! And that skirt is so pretty... I love the colour! I just saw photos of your kids in a previous post and oh my god, they're so cute! I want children too!!!

    Btw, thanks for the comment :)

  10. I love this Kristina! It's a great combination, one which i wouldn't have thought of, but wished I did! How do you come up with such clever combos? I'm downright boring compared to you...hehe

  11. This skirt is great. And even better in this combination. I think many girls would have a problem with it but you did it just great, as always. Is it a bit colder in Indiana?
    I Can not wait to hear what your project is about.
