Now, to continue the post from yesterday. Sorry about that! Update: I had to wait for my husband’s computer. Now I am behind! On to the maxis:
I found this red flannel tunic on clearance at Nordstrom Rack for $20. I love that I can wear it tucked in or pair it with leggings or jeans. It is almost long enough to be a dress, but not quite. This day I paired it with my Free People Ginger Skirt from the beginning of the year. In real life, the skirt is all a deep black, but the lace parts are showing up a different color in pictures. Sorry about that! That also means that this is more slimming in real life, because it goes straight down without the breaks that are appearing here. Anyhoo, I felt like a feminine lumberjack this day. Isn’t that what every lady strives for? ; )
I have had this Citizens of Humanity Anja Skirt in my closet for awhile. It sold out last year, but if you click on the link you can see how full this skirt is. I got mine for the sale price on eBay. I bought a size 30 at the time. It was too big. This skirt runs large. I finally took it in to get it altered (I was scared she would not be able to do it). It came back and it is one of my favorite pieces for the fall. It is long and loose. This is the way it is supposed to look. I paired it with a henley bought on sale from Free People last winter.
* Also, a quick note: Anthropologie is doing Holiday Workshops where you help make a display for the store. It is free. It is fun. I went to TWO! I learned two simple crafts I cannot wait to share with you guys. And I met some lovely ladies. My posts about them are going up on November 8th and November 9th here. But I wanted to give you a heads up in case there was one near you. They are going on right now. Check the Anthropologie website for your state calendar.
