I hope to stay more focused this year...haha (must figure out how to take indoor pictures with this camera).

I love this skirt. It is linen, which you normally associate with summer I suppose, but the rich, dark reddish plum color, paired with the heavier fabric—have you noticed? is it me? materials are simply becoming thinner in just about everything? Which can work (e.g., J.Crew tissue turtlenecks), but here the heavier weight equals warmth, plus a noticeable tendency to shed wrinkles.

This skirt runs fairly large...they were sold out of medium, so I got large, and it's...large, actually. The first time I wore it, it totally belled out, so I ran it through the dryer, where I'd say it shrank between 1/2 and one size. If you tumble it, it doesn't need ironing (for winter I like to touch it up though).
