My Lily Skirt {finally!} Arrived!




After a long week, fighting a bit of a bug, I was so excited to arrive home late Friday evening to find that my Lily skirt that I had ordered a couple of weeks ago had arrived!  It couldn't fit better if I would have had it custom made, it is perfect!  That really does amaze me because I have two tailors that I am pretty certain really, really like me alot!  I ended up getting the 0, rather than the 2, and I just couldn't be happier!  I wore it to church on Sunday, with just a shrunken cardi from Black and White Market and knit top )boutique in San Diego) to bring out the beautiful blues in the skirt, keeping in mind that it was 87 degrees at my house!  I plan to wear it with black tights in the "later" fall, but just wore black Anne Klein pumps sans tights on Sunday.  Photos are in my backyard, which is actually doing quite well through this heatwave.

Also wore it to a movie Sunday afternoon, My One and Only, with Renee Zellweger.  Great movie, really makes you see how far women have come in education and society.  I think this movie would encourage any young woman to GO TO COLLEGE after seeing what this poor character went through.  After the movie I had to change into sweats {this was hard, seriously, this is most comfortable skirt EVER!} for a 2 1/2 hour walk on the beach Sunday evening, taking advantage of the very warm evening.  Edgar only accused me of 'trying to kill him' towards the end of the walk, it was a great walk overall!

Fall Decor is UP!  Yay, however, I still have to add pumpkins (next weekend), so I'll wait to take pictures...hope everyone one had a great weekend!

The skirt looks like something you can assemble with a lot of different pieces... giving it a totally different edge.

Feel better... a lot and soon!
