Volume




Sweater & Skirt (Limited); Jacket (Sandro find at Marshalls); Tights (Target);
Boots (Nine West); Sunglasses (Charming Charlie)

Except for hairstyles of the 90's, no one complains about too much volume.  Which is why I love this skirt. The short and full silhouette is fun and playful, and the more casual military inspired jacket is a nice balance to the girly vibe.  Now if only my hair could achieve the same type of volume as Rex's - besides being generally jealous of his days filled with naps, treats and cuddles... I have major hair envy :)

A little volume is never a bad thing - especially when it comes to skirts! I love that you paired your full, feminine skirt with a more casual khaki jacket, the contrast is lovely :)

Volume is easy to pull off when you're thin like you are! Love the skirt on you. Also, how cute is Rex? I'm dying!

Your hair is just so pretty like it is. When I read "volume" I did however think of hair, first thing. I am glad it was your skirt that had the volume, cuz your hair is so nice without that 80's VOLUME.

and ...yes we had a blast at our party. :D
