This week has been wonderful so far. No appointments, events, or reasons to really leave the house. As an introvert I really enjoy my time alone. The problem is this time is very scarce! As overwhelmed as I can get, I know Bianca is going to preschool soon and I'll never get this time with her back. So until that dreaded day comes, I'll keep this in mind when she's testing my patience (aka at least five times a day). Luckily, I have a few solo hours today to treat myself to a haircut. I've been putting this off for months but I'm excited for some change!
Shoes- Chelsea Crew
Bracelet- c/o Touchstone Crystal by Swarovski

While this print wasn't an instant hit for me, knowing that it came in a Hopscotch cut solidified my decision to purchase it. The last time the Hopscotch made an appearance was in winter 2013, so I clearly missed my chance to own one myself. I love the full skirt (with pockets!), crystal button detail, and the cutout in the back. It's super functional with a hint of sexy, which is how I'd really describe my wardrobe as a whole. The Hourglass print is made from a wonderful stretch cotton, which feels light but has a stiffness to it. While I wore an underskirt for these pictures, it can hold its own without one. I'm usually between a 2 and a 4 (I've been taking size 2's in every collection since Crimson Clover) and the 2 is a perfect fit. I know some ladies have sized up for bust comfort, but since I'm not super busty I decided to forgo that notion. If you're on the fence, I'd highly recommend giving the Hourglass collection a try. Cute color scheme + great cut choices + amazing fabric = one perfect investment piece!
