In this outfit:
Sweater: Thrifted ($1)
Skirt: Vintage/ TXSC Swap Lulu's
Tap Shorts c/o Ruche
Tights: American Apparel Super Opaque ($25)  
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell ($60 sale- 2010)
Bag: Vintage Coach/ Avalon ($20)

Where I wore it: To the office!

The last time I wore this skirt, I unintentionally flashed the grocery store parking lot, so this time around precautions were taken. Precautions in the form of red sequin hot pants. Big thanks to Christen who took my photos yesterday, for putting up with me awkwardly flashing her my shorts over and over again in order to get a not-entirely-awkward shot of them. It's been cold, cold, cold the past few days (it's six degrees right now), making the extra layer not only helpful in keeping me covered up, but also keeping me just a little bit warmer. 

Stay warm!

love the shorts idea! I need to remember that with some of my dresses. By the way, love your hair like that!

Is it weird that I chuckled out loud as I scrolled down that first picture? I was that girl who always insisted on wearing shorts under her skirts as a kid (you never know when the opportunity might arise to get dirty), so it's fun to see a more "grown-up" version of it!

Stay warm! It's pretty cold over here in Ohio too!

Yay, thrilled you shared yesterday's instagram outfit - I was dying to see the whole thing. It's gorgeously styled, and you look stunning in that first photo! And yup, we've had insanely cold weather too! xo

This outfit is beyond adorable! I am loving your up-do and those shoes!! Those hot pants are absolute perfection too! Nothing like a flash of sparkle rather than a flash of embarrassment!

I love the sequin hot pants! If I were to get flashed by someone, I'd want to see sequin hot pants. :P

That is such a great idea! I live in a town that is usually pretty windy, so I don't wear skirts or dresses that often because i've definitely accidentally flashed people before too! Definitely stealing that idea :)

You do so many awesome things with your hair! I love this outfit and how you added the sequined hot pants, it's both practical, yet unexpected :)

This skirt made my heart go pitter-patter; love that you paired it with simple black (plus, those shorts are a hidden gem). And, once again, you give me massive hair-envy! What a great look.

those shorts are definitely adorable and handy. i love the darling, schoolgirl look of the skirt with the studded lace-up loafers, great combination!

You look so adorable! I love the milkmaid braids and I love the cute sequin shorts under your skirt. It makes for an un-embarassing cute surprise if you unintentionally flash people, haha! That sounds so weird.
