Maxi Parachute Skirt - and Caught!

The weather is finally (finally!) getting warmer, and my spirits are lifting. However, my hemlines are dropping. How much am I in love with bigass flowy skirts?
As much as that! This is the second wear of my parachute skirt (first seen here). I wanted to see if I could make it work for a business casual work setting.

It was very swooshy as I went about my day.
I can't resist a twirl!

Inigo got into the act:
Oh, stretchy kitty!

The outside shot:
I am laughing my head off because I've finally been caught taking my picture outside by a neighbour. Marianna, who's just moved in, is standing up against the wall there. Ha! She didn't want to spoil my shot - how nice.

One more time!
The cardigan is one of my favourites (last seen here), and as usual I pulled out the red in the cranes into my accessories.

The stuff:
I actually planned this outfit around the shoes because my feet were still sore last night.

Check out this enormous flower:
Isn't it amazing? Not bad for $6.

The jewelry:
Pretties.

Cardigan (Lucky Brand, consignment), cami (Vero Moda), skirt (Cute Options), shoes (Predictions, consignment), belt and bracelet (Plum), earrings (local), ring (Oscar & Libby's).

I can't resist a kitty in the sun:
I like his shadow.

  1. I love this look, especially the color palette and the fun skirt! I got busted taking my pics today too. A construction worker was driving by. He rolled down his window and very politely asked i I needed someone to take my photo. LOL

  2. That skirt is amazingly awesome. It looks like a blast to wear.

    I haven't gotten 'caught' much. Mostly because I take my photos in my backyard for the most part and otherwise try to find hidey spots. Maybe I should get more adventurous!

    Love the kittypics. Kittttyyyy beelllllyyy.

  8. Oh what a happy outfit! The cardi- the flower, the shoes, and that FAB skirt. Yay! No wonder you're smiling!
    And Inigo has a stretchy partner in the kitty who is my avatar pic. Together they could do a synchronized stretching routine in the Kitty Olympics...(coming this summer to a sunny windowsill near you!)
