EBEW: They Say It's Spring

Don't I look nice and springy today?  It's sort of ironic, because it actually started snowing as I was taking these photos.  Figures that the day I want to wear this skirt, it starts randomly snowing.  It has since stopped, but it's still absolutely freezing outside today.

Today is EBEW day!  I missed the last EBEW challenge because I was in Lincoln with my mom, so I was determined to make this one.  If you couldn't guess, today's theme was pastels!  In true Kate fashion, I didn't pick just one or two pastel items, I went with as many as possible.  I did what I usually do, and I pulled everything pastel out of my closet and threw it on my bed.  It's one of my favorite things to do.

I am absolutely in love with this skirt.  I found it at Goodwill, without a tag, so the cashier gave it to me for $1.99.  Awesome!  It's so cute and light and springy.  When I saw it I was instantly reminded of this American Apparel skirt, that I've totally been drooling over for years.  But really, $60 for a skirt? I don't have that kind of money, folks.  So this is a wonderful alternative!  And I like it even more!

I have surgery on my finger today at 3.  I'm really nervous about it.  Not because I think anything is going to go wrong - It's my finger, what could possibly happen? - But being fully awake while someone is cutting into my body is really scary for me.  I had a couple of moles removed on my face a few years ago, and that was really scary, too.  I'm sure everything will be fine, I'm just a little freaked out!  In the meantime, I'm trying really hard not to use my left index finger for anything.  It's much harder than it sounds.

Everything I'm wearing, with the exception of my tights and necklace, are secondhand.  I'm amazing, friends.  Also, my tights match our house color.

  1. Saw your outfit on EBEW and had to stop by because this is such a pretty skirt! It's perfect for spring!

  2. That pleated skirt is such a wonderful springy find! I especially love how it looks paired with the white lace top - so pretty!

    1. Thanks! :) I love this lace top, too.

  3. Saw you at EBEW. Such a pretty skirt. The epitome of spring. Love the blue tights and belt with it.
    So very nice to meet you.

  4. OMG, I just read about what happened to your finger! Ouch!!
    Hope your surgery went okay.

    1. Thank you! It went just fine. It was much less invasive than I was expecting, so that's good!

  5. That skirt is perfection and yay for blue tights! Love this pretty look :)


  6. That skirt is just perfect! I wish I could find something as great as that! Looks fabulous on you (as always)

  7. I can't imagine what having a needle stuck in your finger would feel like. In 2010 I had a teeny little metal sliver the size of a hair in my right index finger and it hurt like heck. It was kinda a surreal experience being in my little happy tent while the Doc removed it. When I went in a month later for surgery on my left middle finger to remove an arthritic bump, I knew the drill. Glad to hear that your finger is fine and your outfit is divine.

  8. I totally feel your pain with the weather. There is still a ton of snow on the ground which makes it so hard, because you want to dress for spring and go out without a coat eh? Well, regardless you look fantastic.
    much love.

    p.s. I hope your finger is okay.

  9. Love your pleated skirt! It's colorful and pretty. And your shoes is great too. :)
