Different Take

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break.  On Instagram, I posted a picture of our Christmas tree. In the past, we always used artificial trees however, this Christmas will be special with Nolan so we decided to get a real tree. My husband got it Thanksgiving morning and it was fun watching him set it up. The tree kept falling but eventually, it settled in – love the tree and the unique pine smell. I hope to put the ornaments in the coming weeks. The rest of my weekend was spent relaxing and watching reruns of reality TV shows.

This outfit post is a different take on my ‘choies skirt’ casually worn here. This time around, I complimented with an off-shoulder top for a sexy yet classy twist to the neon skirt. I completed the look with dark shades of accessories including a leopard print for a calmer tone. 

Outfit: Choies skirt ℅ (here & similar here, love this here) // Asos top (here, similar here) // Aldo pumps (old, similar here, love this here & here) // Ray ban glasses (here, love this here) // Michael Kors watch (similar here) // MAC lipstick (herelove this here)

    I never knew neon and leopard prints goes together but I must say that you make things work. This outfit is really a different take.
