There are quite a few outfits backlogged from last year that I have to show you in the new year so I hope you don't mind! Argyle always screams "holiday time" to me but I still enjoy styling this sweater in the early months of the year. It could definitely be part of a Valentine's Day-inspired look too. Plus red and black is a classic combination year round.
This outfit included a new black skater skirt I ordered from an Old Navy sale. I got the regular version instead of the petite one since reviews said the petite one was a little short. Honestly, I think an inch or so off the length would be fine for me. I like to wear flats pretty often and longer skirts look better with heels. Not that this skirt is long by any means. In these pictures it looks like a decent length but I'm wearing heels. It's also a tiny bit big in the waist but that can be fixed! Either way it's a good basic piece to have around, which is why I bought it. For it's first day out I styled it with a classic argyle sweater my black leather jacket, and bright red tights. The shoes are a Target find from many years ago and big silver hair bow is from Forever 21.

Are you having a good weekend so far? We did some grocery shopping and errand running today. I also spent a chunk of time downloading custom content for The Sims 4 which I downloaded after Christmas. Because I'm an adult. I'll probably play a little bit tonight. That's what Saturdays are for!
Have any of you ever pressed loose eyeshadow pigments yourself? Jeanie bought me some super cool Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadows but I just don't have time to screw around with loose pigment in the morning. I was looking for glycerin to use as a binding agent for pressing, but apparently nobody carries it so off to Amazon I (virtually) go. I'll let you know how it works out!
Have a fantastic rest of your weekend!
