indian-inspired wrap skirt

5-30-12 1

For Mother's Day, I treated my mom to a much-needed closet clean-out.  Not only was super productive for her, but I benefitted quite a bit with first dibs to her cast-offs.  One glance at this skirt, and I knew it was coming home with me.  It's a reversible wrap skirt (with tons of "wrapping" options, apparently - which I have not yet figured out) in the lightest of all fabrics.  I love taking something so ethnically inspired and pairing with a simple white button-down.  Add a little glitz and a nearly-invisible pair of sandals and the look is complete!

I can't believe these pictures are a week old!  It's been a crazy week and I finally feel as though I'm starting to come out the other side.

Here's a quick run-down on what I got this past week:

A giant bruise on my hip after careening into the cement floor at nearly full speed.  I was the only person on the rink floor.  Epic.  Fail.

A speeding ticket.  Awesome.  Not.

A new computer.  Yay!

A CD-rom for said computer after discovering that ultra-books don't have internal drives.  Duh.

A infuriating head cold that stymied my best efforts at our derby bout Saturday night.

A new job!

Hey, all is well that ends well I suppose.  I'll fill in the blanks soon.  Until then, I need to play catch up after taking off yesterday afternoon to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary!
