It's been a busy few days for us! Currently I am attending a speech and language conference that we drove to straight from a weekend at the in-laws celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday (which was right after my hubby's work trip). Whew! Lots of driving and traveling time and a skilled bit of coordination, but well worth it. It was so nice seeing family this weekend. I feel we are especially blessed with the family we have on both sides. You know the saying, "You don't get to choose your family," but given the choice, I would still choose them!

With all the work trips my husband takes, it is nice to be able to take one of my own now. It's even better that it happens to be at a hotel with several indoor water parks so Matt and Claire came, too. So I am doing lots of learning and they are having a splashing good daddy-daughter time together. A win-win all around!

Today I am showing a skirt I got a while back from ifchic. It's my first item made from scuba fabric and I love the thick feel. Light blue is such a pretty color paired with darker colors for winter or lighter pastels and neutrals for spring. Definitely a year-round versatile piece. This pretty skirt definitely made me feel more confident when wearing this outfit!

  27. I had a similarly busy weekend of travel - to MA for my sisters birthday and to see my brother and his family. It's always great to spend time with family, even if all the travel can be exhausting.

    Love the shade of blue of your skirt - it's great layered up, but I'm sure it will be even better in the spring!

  28. Just like everyone's said...the color of that skirt is lovely!
    My scuba material dress ended up getting a ton of pillings when I washed it (even though the directions said it was ok)---so if you have time, you might hand wash it? jodie

  31. We LOVE scuba fabric! It's just so perfect with the "colder" weather. Although with colder, we mean 60s...because we're in LA. LOL

  38. The slight flare of the skirt is working wonders for you, Laura. It makes your already small waist look nonexistent and whilst I should technically hate you for looking so teeny, I shall continue to love you and your style instead. It is the right thing to do xoxo

  39. Oh this is such a pretty color skirt! It really pops with the black. And yay for work trips. I am always so glad when it works out to make a family trip out of it!

  40. Even though we are in the middle of a snow storm, I'm feeling so ready for the warm weather. That pretty color makes me feel like it's spring :)
