I found this skirt at H&M in Paris when I was studying abroad there. It was during my obsession with Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl (okay, who am I kidding, still obsessed) and it instantly made me think of her. It’s such a great skirt that I feel is timeless and classic. I was really channeling my English ancestry with this outfit, with my cableknit sweater, wool skirt, tights and ballet flats. By the way, notice how cold-weather-appropriate this outfit is? This can only mean one thing: welcome, Fall. You’ve officially come to California, and stolen the leaves from the trees and put a bit of a chill in the air. Now excuse me while I go snuggle under a blanket with some hot chocolate.
