Merlot Sweater and Cobalt Skirt

For two whole minutes last fall, I had long(ish) hair. It’s funny how I wait so long to grow my hair out and then immediately get bored with it. Well, here’s a rare look at the long-haired me. A little #TBT.

Sweater: Target
Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: Roots Canada
Shoes: Soda
Necklace: eBay

I wore my comfy merlot (burgundy/wine) sweater with a pencil skirt. This stretchy skirt is very versatile. It goes with everything from blazers to t-shirts. I dressed up the simple top with a long necklace with a wing and some bling.

It’s officially tights weather in Seattle so I thought a look back to last year’s tights season would be appropriate. The outfit was worn a while ago but it works now. In fact, I might just wear this tomorrow!

  1. LOVE that necklace. And the long hair, of course short hair is pretty awesome too. You have to wear tights cuz it cold!!! You should try some of my Winter weather.

    Thanks for sharing your awesome style

    • Thanks Brian! I got on a “I need long necklaces” kick a couple of years ago and scoured eBay for some neat cheapies. This was one.

      I can’t decide what hair length to stick with. Glad you like ’em both!

      Oh, yeah, I don’t want your weather 😉 Stay warm my cold-weather friend 😛

  7. I’m the same when it comes to hair, always want what I don’t have – long hair when it’s short, short hair when it’s long. Gah! You look great either way!
