Burgundy Fall Skirt & Exciting News


My skirts keep getting bigger and bigger! I absolutely adore this fall-weight skirt! Not only is it my favorite color, but it’s felted texture makes it perfect to pair with softer fabrics like silk. A burgundy skirt has been a wish-list item of mine for a while. I have a frothy silk one that I’ve been iffy about since I bought it years ago, and it never got much wear. This one, on the other hand, I couldn’t wait to pull on. I think a burgundy skirt can finally get checked off the list. =)

The boyfriend and I took these photos as we were on our way to dinner to celebrate our anniversary. I’m delighted to share that after eight wonderful years of dating my best friend, he surprised me and asked me to marry him. I’m so touched to have the heart of such an amazing, kind, sweet, brilliant, generous, witty, person. =)

He then went on to catch my tears on camera…
