Long skirt and a cropped top

It takes a lot for me to take my outfit photos indoors, and it takes even more for me to take them in the creepy basement. I swear the furnace makes noises like the one from Home Alone. Not to mention the lighting comes off as hazy and weird. So this should be your indication that the weather here is really that bad. And it's really not even as bad as it could be (I think everyone is overreacting a little). I just didn't want to take my photos outside as wet sleet rain/snow was blown in my face by 30 MPH winds. With the help of my ankle-length puffy coat and my Hunter Wellingtons (I changed into my pumps at work) I was able to comfortably wear my silk maxi skirt. Anything is possible with a little courage and some Bailey's in your coffee (haha not really). I have really loved seeing long, high-waisted skirts paired with cute cropped tops and sweaters so no blizzard was going to stop me from wearing this outfit. I was going to just wear this with some eclectic earrings, but as I was walking out the door, I said to myself, "No dahling. Vear da pearls." In that strange accent too. Isn't that weird? 
H&M top; F21 skirt; Nine West pumps; Pearls (a gift)

Thats super cute, and looks so expensive for F21.

To answer your question - my FAVORITE Goodwill store is the Streetsboro Goodwill off of Rt 14. ALSO - I lived in Medina for a while, and the Brunswick Goodwill and the other thrift store across the street are amazing down there. You need to road trip - they have some super vintage stuff down there!

WOW!!!! Am I weird to think that the creepy basement gave the picture an mysteriously glamourous vibe? This skirt is just beautiful and you perfected this look.
