Happy Wednesday my lovely friends!

I hope you're having a great week so far!

It's been another crazy busy week over here. It just seems to get busier and busier each week, especially as Aviah is growing! I'm still trying to get into a groove and have a more set schedule. My days and even weeks are so unpredictable, but I'm trying to make it all work. I have to be honest and say that sometimes I get rather overwhelmed because I feel as though I'm stretched so thin trying to get everything done and be everything to everyone all at once. I'm sure many new moms feel the same way and until you get into your groove, it can be very tough.

I'm honestly so thankful to have such supportive friends in all of you. You've all been so patient and supportive of me from the beginning. Each time I apologize for not having a post up or responding to comments, you assure me that it's okay. At the same time, you've come to "know" me and that it's my nature to feel terrible for not perfectly dotting my i's and crossing my t's . I'm such a Type A. Though I know you will say that I don't need to explain myself, I promise that as I become more and more used to my role as a mother, while juggling life and this blog, I'll be more active as once before, just bare with me :)

Enough of my emotions, which are all over the place these days...blame it on the fluctuating mama hormones, haha; let's get onto today's outfit, shall we?!

I've had both pieces in this outfit for as long as I can remember, but I constantly challenge myself to create new and refreshing outfits with older pieces in my wardrobe each season. I've never styled these two together before and thought they'd make for the perfect combination. I love the way the olive green looks paired with the black and how the mix of texture in the fringe works with the studded details in the military inspired shirt. 

What I love about fringed skirts is that they're super flattering because they're often found in skirts that are a-line or pencil and lay flat against the service, so you don't have to worry about it making you appear larger or drawing attention in an unflattering way. To re-establish my waistline, I tucked in the shirt and pulled it out a bit to add some volume up top, while adding definition to the waist area. If you're looking for a more casual way to style a similar skirt, an oversized sweater would look super cute paired with ankle boots; a look I'm thinking of creating myself sometime soon! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, my dear friends! I hope you found some inspiration in today's look and I look forward to seeing you in Friday's post!
