OOTD- Anthropologie Tsuga Skirt

This skirt had called to me from the first minute I saw it in the catalog.
Patience really pays off.
I got this on sale, plus the 50% off promo. I actually ordered it before the promo started, but I got a price adjustment.
So this turned out to be around $40, I think.
Great deal, if you ask me.

I've already thought of a few different things to pair this with, but for some reason leopard just seemed like the right fit.
The color of this skirt is called moss. It really is a beautiful green.
The material is a little like felt. Makes me feel like a kid again.

So, I missed out on the phenom that is Downton Abbey. I only became aware of it when it hijacked the Emmy's and won all these awards and everyone was like, "WHAT?!!? DOWNTOWN WHAT?!?!?" And then the BBC was like, "It's Down-TON, people, not TOWN."

Now it's like this HUGE thing- they even joked about it on Chuck!

I've been searching for it on my TV but I didn't know it was under "M" for "Masterpiece Classic" on DirecTV and not "D".
I guess the second season is starting, but I need to watch it from the beginning.

Kind of bummed, my fingers wandered over to my library's online catalog and they have the series 1 DVD! Yes! First Mindy Kaling, now this!
Aww, now I almost feel bad about trash talking you yesterday, my sweet little well meaning library.


I think I'm #8 in line so the plan is to tape all the new ones off PBS as they air and then watch them once I've caught up on the first season.

I forgot I need to ask my sis if she has seen it- she gets, like, 10 BBC channels over there in Scotland so she's probably super into it.

I went to the library today to return a huge stack of magazines I had checked out and returned all my overdue items and paid all my fines.
I now have a clean slate there again.
It felt good.

I am determined to be better about returning items on time, not losing anything, and hopefully not having to pay any late fees.

I don't really mind, because I like supporting the library which is definitely in need of funding as many are, but it seems like such an unnecessary thing to accrue fines when I can renew online, live pretty close, and don't really have a reason for being late all the time besides sheer laziness and being completely unorganized.
They have a sign up on the checkout counter that asks patrons to consider donating .25 cents per item checked out to help them financially, so I'm going to try to stick to that.

I'll feel better about donating of my own volition rather than being in the literary dog house, so to speak, and bowing my head in shame while I hand over my crumpled, lifeless dollar bills and spare change I've dug up from the bottom of my purse just to get my balance low enough to where I can check things out again.
It will be nice to not be the black sheep of the lib anymore!

But, hey- that's two things that's impressed me there this week as far as their selection goes. Life is good!

1. The last thing I ate was peppers, onions, and sausage in marinara.

2. The last song I listened to was Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin.

3. Using the letters in my name I can spell HAIR!

4. If I had to dress in one color for the rest of my life I would pick either navy or black. They are the easiest to wear and most versatile. Plus you could always jazz it up with colorful accessories!

5. If you were to look in my bag right now you'd find a BIG mess. I have been needing to clean it out for a while. I am a chronic handbag
over-stuffer...It's a problem! I'm currently carrying my wallet, 3 notebooks, pens, camera, cell phone, hair ties, bobby pins, cookies, napkins, powder compact, jewelry, so much stuff!

6. When I finish filling in the blanks I'm going to watch the critics' choice awards, take off my chipping nail polish, and then try to tidy up a little before I get in bed and read a book!

7. My all time favorite song to dance to is There are so many, but once a week when I do the dishes I always end up grooving hard to David Bowie's Golden just gets my feet going! But I love dancing around to many different songs and many different types of music.


  1. I think the leopard shoes go great with that skirt, so pretty!! Where are those shoes from?

    1. Thanks! I got them at Ross or Marshalls...they were only $20!

      THey called to me as soon as I saw them!

      I think they are madden girl.

  2. Great skirt!
