Flattering Midi Skirt for the Holidays

When I saw this skirt at Target, I knew I had to snatch it up for upcoming holiday gatherings! This is actually the first midi skirt I purchased because the fit is so flattering on in comparison to other versions I’ve tried in the past! I would say the skirt fits true to size. Normally I size down in high waisted skirts, but my regular pants size was more comfortable! Also, how did I just realize this month that Target has online ordering + store pickup? It helps me avoid mindless Target purchases we’re all so guilty of! So check to see if your store has this in stock to pick it up before Sunday!

So the unfortunate news… My shoes were a Nordstrom Rack find earlier this year and I could only find them linked on Poshmark used 😢 They’re the Kate Spade Peggy Heels if you’re wanting those. My bow coat was a Christmas gift last year from the Kate Spade outlet, but I was just in there last week and they had multiple options of bow coats so call your local Kate Spade outlet.

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! This is the first year I’m not waking up in my parents home, so although it will be different I’m looking forward to celebrating more of the moments with Tim. We were majorly slacking in the holiday decor department until his sister and mother came over and decorated our place while we were at work! It was the sweetest surprise to come home to, plus we finally have internet after almost four months of waiting!
