Who Knew?

You guys, I'm wearing a corduroy skirt.  If I knew all the things I loved back when I was young and awkward would come back into style, I would never have gotten rid of anything.

{Top: H&M, Skirt: H&M (similar), Shoes: Nine West, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman, Etsy, Alex and Ani}

I'm totally loving this burgundy color for the fall.  What about you, are you loving the corduroy come back?  What about burgundy?

Time for this week's Friday Love-It Notes!

1.  Discovering that there is a frozen yogurt shop opening up next to my work.  This is going to be so dangerous awesome!

2.  My husband knows me really well... too well sometimes.  I tried to sneak in a mini shopping sesh last night after work and my husband calls me.  2 minutes into the conversation he says "why do you sound so happy?  Are you shopping right now??"  Oops.

3. Tomorrow is my best friend's birthday.  She's been my best friend for the last 12 years and was my maid of honor in our wedding.  One day I'll tell you the story of how we became friends... maybe.  Happy birthday Lindsay!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Wren KW said...

This is such a lovely fall outfit. I am definitely loving stripes this fall. I haven't jumped on the burgundy wagon yet because I'm still holding out for the right piece. I would love a pair of corduroy burgundy pants (just like when I was in Kindergarten).


Makaila said...

yes, I am seriously loving this fall color. I can't believe you've had that skirt from back when, it is perfect for this season!! Shopping makes me happy too. I think I am going to go at lunch. ;) happy weekend!

Burgundy looks fantastic on you! I think it's a great color for fall however it's one that just doesn't go with my complexion or hair color. AS for cords it totally reminds me of when I was younger! I think it'll take me a little while to warm up to it again.

xo, jen

Stephanie @twenty-something said...

I am in love with that skirt, the exposed zipper is so cute too! I am a big fan of both burgundy and corduroy, but since it probably won't cool down enough in FL for it I'll just have to settle for rocking some more lightweight burgundy pieces! Love this outfit, and good luck with the frozen yogurt shop - one opened by our house and we go there at least once a week...


becks said...

awesome skirt! this is such a great transitional piece from summer to fall!


Katherine / Of Corgis and Cocktails said...

Ashley said...

SO cute!!! I love your skirt and the color is perfection! I feel the exact same way about things coming back in style...If only we knew they would make a comeback in the future xx

Love your burgundy cord skirt! Burgundy is my fall color. It goes with practically anything. So glad cord skirts are coming back. To me, wearing skirts in the winter is not practical. But cords are the exceptional.

Meg {henninglove} said...

i love that wine color of the skirt!! it looks beautiful on you and corduroy is back, i had no clue

I can relate to what you say - I have also given away many many clothes that I should have kept because they're back in fashion (such as corduroy trousers).

I love corduroy! Bought a mustard-colored corduroy skirt last year, and I can't wait to wear it!

I'm also totally into burgundy - just bought some burgundy leggings yesterday :)

What I wore in my awkward days were my older brothers beat up T-shirts and too short bell bottom jeans. Let us all pray that that is never a fad again :)

I love the cords! I want a pair in that color of jeans :) Super cute with the stripes as well!

Lily Marek said...

Yes I am loving cords! They're so soft and cozy. I just got two pairs of skinny cords at Target in light pink and a tomato red color. The color of your skirt is gorgeous, so on trend!

I love that corduroy skirt! I can totally see this piece transitioning into fall and the color is just perfect! Now that you talk about corduroy, I have to confess that I also owned two pairs of corduroy pants ages ago and I gave them away because I never thought I would see this trend back again! I hope you have a great weekend, Yi-chia!

I know what your talking about! I threw out so many things when I was young thinking 'they are not cool enough'.

That is so funny that your husband knew you were shopping!!! Isn't it crazy the things they can pick up on so easily! The shirt is awesome too. There are so many times I open my closet and think - ugh I wish I didn't give that away! I have a really time parting with clothes now for that reason :)

Genie said...

As always, you look amazing! I saw a hint of the exposed zipper on the back of your corduroy skirt, and it just adds more detail. Fantastic outfit, and those heels are so hot!

I've heard that a lot, "why didn't I just hang on to those clothes, they're back in style now!" Hehe. I try to hang on to pieces I still love even thought they're out of style right now, you never know if they'll be back! The only problem is my closet can only contain so much, haha!!

But that skirt is so adorable. The corduroy, the burgundy. Cute cute cute!

Great pairing! Pics got nice bokeh too! How awesome that your hubby can tell how happy you are just over the phone!!

Definitely loving burgundy for fall, it's one of my favorite colors and I'm actually wearing burgundy tights at the moment haha. I think your outfit is so cool, I think I might actually try to find similar things to kind of replicate this outfit haha :)

Izzy said...

oh gosh I have stayed away from corduroy since primary school as well LOL and I can't believe you're actually wearing one...because it looks so good! it's such a gorgeous rich shade of burgundy and somehow the shape and length make it go from daggy to classy. nicely done :)

What a cute fall look! I recently added two corduroy skirts to my closet and I love them! I had one when I was a kid, but I doubt it would fit me now! It was my lucky skirt for a while...
