Faux Skirts

I’ve decided that I’m very much a dresses and skirts kind of girl.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely wear pants, but I love the easy freeness of throwing on a dress or the flowiness of a skirt.  Lately, I’ve been into wearing faux skirts, as in wearing something over a dress so that it looks like a skirt.

I was looking up thrift stores in town because I haven’t yet done any thrifting since I’ve been home and apparently there’s this great consignment/antique store downtown.  I definitely plan to check it out today or tomorrow!

Also, I started a new knitting project, a late Christmas present for my godmother.  It’s a red ruffley scarf (I’ll put up pictures when I’m finished) and hopefully I can finish it soon so I can give it to her before the new year!  Do you guys have any late Christmas presents that you haven’t yet given to the giftee?

    I like to wear a jumper over a dress to give it a new look as I tend to wear my dresses only a few times. Its a very clever idea :)
