Remember my ridiculous rant about houndstooth? Well, turns out I'm a fan of this print. I'm totally guilty of defaulting to head-to-toe black and white with a pop of (various shades of) pink. It's easy and it works every.single.time. So mixing black and white together in a fun little pattern (ie houndstooth) = genius. 

I bought this skirt over a year ago but never got around to wearing it before my waist line started to expand. I love it because it can be dressed up or down. For a more casual look, I could totally see this exact outfit with Chuck Taylors and simpler accessories. And I actually dressed it up a couple weeks ago for work, pairing it with a red peplum top, black tights, and black boots. 

In other news, the first day of spring is this Thursday.
I seriously am SO over this bipolar Texas weather. Really looking forward to the warmer temps ahead.

Hope you're having a fab week so far! 


  1. I thought I hated houndstooth forever too, but have found that I really like it if it's oversized or super tiny. So this skirt is good! I love how you've styled it!


  2. I agree with the black and white with splash of pink, always works! :) Love the skirt.

  3. Love the big hounds tooth pattern. Cute hair too!

  4. Very nice! Love the outfit, as well as your hair. Great boots too!


  5. be prettier, geesh. I miss my best blog friend in the WORLD and love your outfits. Does Kim take all your pictures? I need a good camera so my photos can be bomb like yours. I'm just over here like, ooooo, iphone.
