December finals week. You would think that we would be experiencing weather that would make us want to stay inside and cram away right? Nope, it’s been 70 degrees on and off all weekend. Not exactly the type of weather that encourages much productivity. Nevertheless, I’m taking advantage of the mild temperatures by breaking out my favorite skirts and dresses before Mother Nature realizes it’s winter again. Being able to wear this bold H&M skirt is probably the highlight of a week spent in the library. 
I’m incredibly excited to get through this week and attend RVA Fashion Week’s Winter Gala! Make sure to check out my guest post on Virginia is for Blogger’s site so you can join me at this fabulous event.

    That skirt is so great! Love the pattern AND the shape! The chambray top is a perfect compliment (in my mind, chambray=neutral).
