Hi Darlings!

I am having an amazing week you guys! I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am for all the really great things that are happening with my family and the blog. Thank you all for the support and love you guys show me. I KNOW I have the best fans EVER!

Today I woke up feeling sparkly and since I bought this sweater at the GAP a few weeks back, because of it’s sparkle, I knew I had to wear it. Aside from the sweater being so fab and versatile it also has a really great shape. Some sweaters are shaped odd and when you wear them they fail to fall properly on the body but this one has a great shape and front “tuck ability” lol that is a new term I just made up. I am known to do a front tuck often so that is always the first thing I check when I buy sweaters. A sparkle sweater is also a great way to dress up some jeans and boots.

The skirt is a favorite of mine and I made it using 3 panels instead of one full front piece so I could get a much greater drape on the bottom. If you are a new be to sewing you can get a very similar look using my mermaid skirt tutorial, it is probably one of the easiest projects to get started with.

QUICK TIP: During the winter months (and yes it still gets cold in Cali) I wear leggings or heavy tights under my maxi skirts and they keep me really warm.
