[InStyle DIY] Spotted Skirt

The polka dot trend was all over the runway and on celebs, so for my DIY column in February’s issue of InStyle I made a tone on tone version with a leather skirt from American Apparel and vinyl from Mood Fabrics. I’m excited to sport this skirt while I am back home in Wisconsin this week, paired with a chunky knit sweater and boots, it is the perfect snowy weather outfit. 

Also some super exciting news: I was nominated for the Bloglovin’ Award “Newcomer of the Year“! I am truly honored to be a part of these awards, and am beyond excited to be in the same category as some of my favorite bloggers. If you have not yet, vote here!
