On Nnenna’s Needles #16

Spring Skirt


I made this springy skirt a couple of years ago.  As you can see, it’s in one of my favorite colors- purple.  The inside is also lined with a cotton fabric in purple, since the lace on the skirt is sort of see-through.  So far, I’ve worn this skirt with a basic tee and sandals because I wanted to keep the look simple, but it might be time to try some new outfit combinations!

How has everyone’s week been so far?  Things have been fairly slow around here and I just have one more final to take before I’m completely done with college!  Saturday at noon, I’ll be one happy camper because I will have finished all my work and I’ll be days away from my beach trip- can’t wait! :)
