Swish, Swish

IMG_1846-6s-1


Why the heck am I standing all funky?  Well, we had some seriously strong wind gusts this morning, and combined with my slanted rooftop, this is me trying to keep myself from falling over and making a (bigger) fool of myself in front of my neighbors this morning.  I'm sure my neighbors were doubling over in laughter watching me balance in heels, holding my hair back from my lip gloss, and incessantly clicking my camera remote in the hopes that it would take at least one cute picture of me while I had my balancing act together.  Fashion blogging is such hard work!  :)

I think I've been on a pink streak lately.  And who can say no to more ruffles?!  This skirt pretty much had to be worn today.  And the best part, how it swishes back and forth when I walk.  It makes the fact that I'm stuck in training all day long that much better.

And now I'm going to bed.  Or maybe to watch some Glee.  :)

    It was windy today, but aren't you loving the weather? It almost reminds me of California some days (at least over the last week).

  4. I love swishy skirts! And I'm falling over all the time during my photo shoots. But that's because of my clumsiness, not the wind, haha!

  10. I LIVE for ruffles. AND I know the wind was aiming to blow your petite self over, but it repeatedly made it possible for my neighbors to catch my unintended Marilyn Monroe impersonation :) Oh, the life! :)

  12. That's such an adorable skirt (I can't even tell that it's super windy in those photos - you look perfectly polished and not at all windblown).

  13. It's windy up here, too (and currently snowy. Grrrr.) Tiered skirts are so pretty. I think I have three or four of them. They're just ultra feminine and they'll always be lovely. You look so cute!

  37. Oh, the wind is something I frequently have to deal with here in Seattle. We have such strong winds sometimes that I have to find something to hold onto or else it will blow me away! It really is annoying when taking pictures and you can keep your hair from whipping into your face. Anyway, you look super cute. I love the polka dots with the ruffles. I certainly can not say no to ruffles! Loves the entire look!

  38. You look fab as always Kileen! I just tagged you for a Kreativ Blogger award :)

  40. I love your skirt Kileen! I wish I had the confidence to wear a skirt and such high heels out - I don't consider myself a prude or anything but I always feel so exposed if I wear an above the knee skirt with heels lol >.<

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh those blustery days, they can really make a mess of outfit photos!
