I have been patiently waiting for a blustery, frigid day to break out this darling midi skirt. Doesn’t that sound ridiculous? Actually looking forward to cold weather to test out a skirt? Ah well, what can I say, I do like the seasons. (Despite my complaints.)

This skirt was one I had received in ModCloth’s last Stylish Surprise event. I’ve personally had some amazing luck in the apparel department for the Stylish Surprise. If you haven’t heard of it before, this is how the Stylish Surprise shopping event works…you pay $15 for a mystery apparel piece and ModCloth will send you a piece in your size, and you have no idea what you’re going to get. (Or you pay $20 for a dress, $10 for shoes, $5 for jewelry, etc.) I’ve gotten amazing dresses, coats, sweaters and now this skirt – which is fantastically made and kept me warm on this frigid day (it was below freezing this past Sunday). It was well worth the $15!!

I know some folks have given up on ModCloth since they were bought out by Jet.com/Walmart. I’m not boycotting ModCloth (more on that here), I just haven’t been ordering from them since it happened because…

1.) Shipping in Argentina is a nightmare, so all my online shopping is at a standstill.

2.) I’m having to use pieces in my wardrobe I haven’t used in a long time because a.) I’m finally getting a proper winter and getting to use stuff I hadn’t in over a year. b.) my current daily dress is far more casual in Rosario than it has been elsewhere. So, moral of the story, I don’t really NEED any new clothing pieces at the moment…because basically, my wardrobe feels “new” now anyways. Which is quite nice! (I love wearing cardigans again especially.)

    You are singing to the choir, Lindsey!! That’s why I really like all of the different seasons, I think! I love wearing my sweaters and boots in the colder months, and my sandals and sundresses in the warmer months!! I totally get it!
    And what a deal on this fabulous skirt!!

    Oh, I miss shopping at Modcloth! But the import costs to the UK are just too ridiculous these days 🙁
    Love your outfit here, and am incredibly envious of the skirt!

    I used to hate winter as always looked like a mess but then I slowly started investing in good winter pieces and particularly accessories like scarces, cardigans , tights etc and now i LOVE dressing up in winter! So many items to play with! Your skirt is gorgeous and blends so harmoniously with the location! And is that a necklace? goes so well with the outfit!

      Thank you so much! And yes it is a necklace! It’s actually made out of zippers. A lady in New Orleans makes them and is so incredibly talented. And I agree, investing in good winter pieces and accessories makes winter so much more enjoyable. 🙂

    I’m drooling over how wonderful the the background matches your outfit! Also, that second photo is STUNNING! Seriously, one of the best photos of you ever!! I’m so curious to see how your fashion evolves with less (online) shopping. Are there fun shops in Argentina? That would be an interesting read about shopping there, as I loved the shopping spree one in Sydney! XO

      Oh gosh, thank you so much, Lauren! I do have to explore the clothing shops in Argentina a bit more. I’ve been a bit intimidated about shopping in clothing stores since my Spanish needs some work yet. But I’ll have to figure it out soon! 🙂
