Hello and happy almost Friday!  Although this week was a short one at work for me, I've been scrambling to fit all of the meetings and workload from a five day week into just four days.  Brutal, but I can't complain about a three-day weekend because it was totally worth running around like crazy this week.  =)

Today's outfit is a pretty summer staple styled for winter.  I originally thought of this charcoal grey Forever 21 maxi skirt as a seasonal piece, due to the thin fabric.  However, I found that adding a pair of tights, a leather jacket, boots, and a scarf makes a great winter outfit!  A pair of opaque tights really does the trick to keep my legs warm under this maxi skirt, and it sort of feels like I am wearing a cozy blanket.  I think that a maxi skirt would also look great styled with a long pullover sweater or cardigan during the winter.  I think next time I may try a long sweater and a knit hat - the maxi skirt really is a versatile piece all year round!
