Outfit Post: Ruffles, Silk & Plaid.



Skirt: Old Navy | Shoes: Jessica Simpson | Blouse: The Rack

Pocketed plaid skirt, ruffled silk blouse, supple purple boots and a belted blue jacket made Christmas shopping a comfortable breeze last Thursday.

Though my boyfriend has started referring to me as "The Ice Queen" due to my black hair and now whittttte skin. Sometimes I wished I hadn't finally decided to quit tanning because oh me, life is better with an orange, sickly glow (in my humble opinion).
Ruffles & Plaid



Happy Monday All! :)

You are so, so, so so so so gorgeous! I love the white skin/black hair look. Stunning.

I am loving your outfit! That skirt is so nice. I think your white skin/black hair is gorgeous. It's not the Ice Queen, it's Snow White!

What a pretty plaid skirt! It seems to have such a perfect shape, like it's a bit of a bell skirt but not too much. Love the blue coat too, that's perfect with the black hair :)

Btw, I am also at my whitest right now... Last time I tanned was in March, but it was for about 3 hours total lol My last proper tanning session happened in October 2010.

P.S. Didn't know you worked in a daycare with toddlers, wow :) It seems to me it's not easy to teach signs to little kids...

Erika said...

I seriously love your shoes. And your hair...so pretty! You look gorg, Caitlin! :)

Johanna said...

You look gorgeous...like a little holiday doll! I agree...hair and makeup look fabulous...as always!

I love those boots. I don't have a purple pair...I might need to get on that :) lol

and about the tanning, yessss!!! I was the tanning queen. I would go 5 days a week every day since I was about 16 years old. I guess that makes me at very high risk for every type of cancer out there. Have you ever spray tanned? Beach Bum's isn't all that bad. (My dad secretly gets spray tanned too. But shhhhh, don't tell him I told you!)

You look great! I love the unexpected blue plaid.

I love your super dark hair and white skin. I think it is much more beautiful than an orange-y glow. However, I do understand the appeal of a glow -- that's where bronzer comes in!

Love it! I want that blouse! And, lucky for me I don't have to tan! I'm naturally bronzed ;) I think you look great though!

I.LOVE.THIS.
Seriously, you look SO good! That plaid skirt goes so well with that blouse. Perfect for the holidays.
And I LOVE your black hair, it looks SOOOO good on you!!!!

Barry said...

White? Nah..porcelain. Maybe you should ask bf to take you back to Hawaii, I mean, purely in the interest of getting more colour if that's what you want. Personally I don't see any issue.

You mention in your Hawaii post that you were attacked in the air in 2001, what happened??

Slamdunk said...

Ahh, you look great.

Watching people over our way in the cold winter months is like seeing a sea of vanilla. No one dares to show skin outside the privacy of their owned darkened homes.
