A hell of a skirt (and some pretty awesome shoes too)!

I started my day with a great yoga class. The Saturday class I like to go to starts at 9:00 and I have missed it the last few weeks because I slept in too late. Today however, the dogs were up and about earlier than normal so I was up in time for class. I'm so glad I went. It feels good to start the weekend with yoga. From there, I went to pick up my "little sister" (through the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program). We decided to have a craft day. We had a lot of fun making valentines cards! When I got home, the mail lady was walking up to my house with an anthro box in tow. I could not wait to try on the Hellebore sweater skirt! Here it is - soft, warm, cozy, and beautiful!

This is one of my favorite pairs of shoes. This post from Goldenmeans first brought these shoes to my attention. I went back to them over and over, drooling over their beauty. Unfortunately, my size wasn't available from Ped shoes at the time. I emailed them, only to find out that they were not planning on restocking. I can't say enough good things about the Ped shoes customer service team because MONTHS later, I received an email letting me know that they did in fact get another shipment and my size was available! They are perfect!


  1. Oooh, nice skirt! It looks great paired with the purple top!!!

  2. Thanks, Kelly! I'm excited to try it with gray too!

  3. What a fantastic and fun combination of colors Kristin! I just got my Hellebore Skirt in the mail and can't wait to wear it with magenta and navy now :)

    And those shoes!! You got them!! I am so incredibly envious. They are too too fabulous =)

  4. Thank you! I can't wait to see how you style it!

    Yes, the shoes......sigh! I love them! The color is so rich, the leather is so soft, they are just perfect:)
