Colonel Mustard in the Navy

Truth be told, these pictures are from at least a month ago, or maybe longer. They've just been sitting "in the can", so to speak. I'm breaking them out now because I thought the color palette of navy and mustard would be somewhat appropriate for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, now that it less than a week away. On a side note, let me just lament the metaphorical "death" of Thanksgiving. For example, this weekend I went out to the stores to try to find some Thanksgiving decorations only to find absolutely nothing that was Thanksgiving-themed. Instead, everything was in full gear for Christmas and has been for pretty much a month now. Thanksgiving truly has become a forgotten holiday, which is a shame. It would be wonderful to savor the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and then move on to Christmas.

Getting back to my wardrobe, this skirt is something that I tracked down on eBay. It was originally released about 4-5 years ago from Anthropologie, but somehow I missed out on my opportunity to purchase it at the time. I put a watch for it on eBay about a year ago and it finally came up in my size at a fantastic price. I'm not a huge fan of buying secondhand clothing from places like eBay, but if it's something specific that I am searching for or at a stellar price, I don't mind too much. Currently, I am using eBay to track down a bunch of ornaments to replace some of the ones that broke when our Christmas tree fell over last year, so I guess, as you can see, I am also somewhat guilty of having Christmas on the brain too!

  1. That's a very pretty skirt. I'm glad you were able to track it down! The mustard look fabulous with navy!

    And, yes, it does seem we are skipping over Thanksgiving. I like to enjoy the fall decorations, but it seems everything has already been Christmasy for weeks...

    Have a wonderful week, Katie!

  2. I feel the same way about Thanksgiving getting overlooked, and it's really a shame. It's my favorite holiday. I mean, all of the great food without the pressure of buying gifts?! I'm in!

    I'm loving this outfit on you! You're so good at mixing colors and patterns!

  3. Such a stunning skirt! I love the vibrant color and the prints! You look fabulous!

  5. In the beginning of October when I was buying some Halloween decorations, they had all the Thanksgiving decor out too but they probably took it out by Oct 31st which is a shame. I would track EBay for that fun skirt, too. Love it with navy!
