OOTD: #DIY Pencil Skirt + Plaid Shirt "Get The Look"




Hi Darlings!

Oh my what a crazy day yesterday, my hubby and I went shopping for the new house and since we are hard headed people we decided that we could fit everything we bought in the car SMH that turned into a serious game of tetris, LOL but we did get it home minus the headboard and new lamps which was just NOT going to fit no matter how hard I wished it. Gotta love him!! I am usually the one saying "Yes, it will fit babe" and he gives me a side eye and says "babe, it's not going to fit" LOL

Ugh! I hate waiting for things, I want my headboard RIGHT. THIS. MINUTE. but I digress....sigh
Today I am working my oldie but goodie EASY DIY Pencil Skirt (Tutorial and Post HERE) and my favorite plaid shirt for a casual day at the office. The fabric I use for my Pencil Skirts is HERE and it is the perfect blend of thickness, support and stretch. You will also find it hard to find the colors that Michael Levine has available for spring anywhere else #justsaying.
