You've got her in your pocket

Skinny Buddha milkmaid braids H&M gray midi skirt Pull&Bear leather jacket

The most important feature I look for in a skirt, and here girls I think you will agree with me, are pockets. Color, shape, length, fabric... etc are only secondary. I think all skirts, or dresses for that matter, should have pockets. OK, maybe you don't fully agree, but think of the last time you tried on a skirt and discovered it had pockets. Didn't that come as a nice surprise, and didn't that skirt instantly gain some extra points on your scale? For me this skirt was love at first sight. I love the fact that the pockets are placed in the front, not on the sides, the midi length is high in my preferences and the neoprene fabric makes it so versatile, it can be dressed up or down easily.

And to my even bigger surprise, I found myself drawn to more basic pieces, like this very simple button down white shirt. In fact, this must be the most minimalist look I've ever displayed on the blog. I like to think that maybe with age comes wisdom, and all the advice about investing in timeless pieces finally makes sense.

Happy New Year!!! It took me a while to get out of vacation mode, but since I started work today I figured I might as well start updating the blog as well. Back to my daily routine. I don't know about you guys, but ever since Christmas I did nothing but eat, sleep, read, watch movies and tv shows and pretty much indulge in all kind of activities for my own pleasure and leisure. I should have greeted you with a brand new outfit, but the above mentioned activities have kept me from taking any new pictures this year, so this old thing will have to do. Mind you, these pictures were taken way before the cold wave hit us. I am still waiting for the ice to thaw before I venture out for some new snapshots.
