Georgie – georgievinsun on Rav – used a lighter MC with a pop color for her CC and it worked out so great! I love the simplicity and wearability.

A huge thank you to Hannah, Rae, and Georgie for allowing me to show off their beautiful skirts! I can’t wait to add your finished New Girl to the mix, too!

New Girl Week! Color Inspirations

I designed New Girl with Knit Picks Stroll Sport, which has since been discontinued. Which is a huge bummer because I love this yarn! Luckily there are lots of fun sport weight options out there to choose from.

Knit Picks Shine sport

Shine Sport is a great alternative and probably closest to Stroll Sport, and there are quite a few fun color combos!

Knit Picks brava sport

I really love the new Brava yarn – it’s crazy affordable and a great quality acrylic option. And they have a TON of colors!

Sexxxy Librarian Casual Style

Everyone is pretty sick of this insanely cold winter, so my styling post for Sexxxy Librarian week will be focused on warmer weather! Because I don’t know about you, but this last cold spell in Chicago killed any sense of style I had left. Hell – we’re friends here – I’ve taken to wearing fleece lined sweatpants to work to help keep my legs warm on my sub zero walk to work!

Sexxxy Librarian Casual Day Out

But let’s forget about all that for a moment and think about wearing skirts! And wearing cute flats without socks! What I love about Sexxxy Librarian is how you can throw it over a pretty normal outfit and voila! Super cute day out outfit!

I’m bookmarking these outfits and will be wearing them in like 6 weeks. YOU HEAR ME WINTER?! 6 weeks and I’m going out without socks whether you like it or not!
