I'd rather smirk than smile...and that's a fact.

If you can't tell, I love this skirt. I want to wear it every day. No, not really. I want to wear it every week to church and every other event that calls for a skirt because you look at it and automatically think I'm cool. Think it. I know you just did!

I discovered a little trick today. I knew I wanted to wear this necklace Melissa gave me as a good-bye gift but it clashed with my round neckline so I added some ribbon in the back and made it longer. Hurrah for creativity!

Random trip picture of the day:
The street restaurant we ate in Hong Kong. It was fun to people watch and try steamed frog (NOT).


Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there...especially mine because he had to put up with me for 22 years.

  5. what if I thought you were cool before you wore the skirt?

    it's super cute though! And I'll have to remember to add ribbon to some of my necklaces if I want them longer- so creative!

  9. That IS an awesome skirt! I'm so glad I have an internet connection again so I can catch up on your posts :)

    Korea is amazing, and the food even more so!! I'm in the city of Gunsan in Jeonbuk-do. People tell me Jeolla is the food capital of Korea and I believe it. People on the whole are very friendly here, too. I can see why you love this country! I'm definitely looking forward to exploring more of it.

  20. The yellow necklace with the simple white top and orange pattern of the skirt are sub-lime (and yes, that pun is intended, because of the citrus-y hues!).

  48. But how do you keep the skirt so un-wrinkled? Does it go in the washing machine? It looks like something that would have to be dry cleaned, which means that at the rate that you love to wear it, your dry cleaning bill would be pretty drastic.

    ReplyDelete
  49. that is a really sweet skirt, i have to agree.
