Shades of Red

One of my very favorite activities around Christmas would be Skating. Although, the only time I've gone this year, I lasted about 10 minutes. The rink had new skates, and I just couldn't get the feel down.

I love wearing a skirt when skating, makes me feel like a real skater, and it twirls a bit. But of course, tights and some shorts are musts as well. Now, I know I'm wearing multiple shades of red, which can be a no no, but I kind of love it.

This skirt is great for skating, when twirling, it doesn't flare too far and it's got that great a-line shape that I love.
Do you like ice skating? I decided I'm going to start my own skating rink... but it won't be a rink. It's going to be a "skating lane". It'll still loop around, but rather than being one big oval, it'll be a whole pathway. You'd get to skate past Christmas trees and lights. Such fun, right?

Would you come to my skating lane?

This outfit would look great with this flower accessory worn as a brooch or pinned on my hat, from Sincerely Merm.

I swear everyone of my comments on these outfit posts have been almost the exact same because you are too freaking adorable! I am such a fan of mixing plaid shirts with skirts/dresses! It is just so fantastic! And those shoes are beyond amazing!

Do you own denim jeans? Because I am pretty sure you should wear those skating, because it is FREEZING at the rink. Also, I think you could rock denim jeans, but alas, I have yet to see them on you... :)

I love the plaid and beanie with the super feminine twirly skirt! My boyfriend plays ice hockey so he would be thrilled if I wanted to skate, but I am so scared of it!! (Jut got an email saying you just left a comment too- great minds!) :)

Katie Aman said...

Oh goodness, could you be any cuter? I love this skirt so much! Definitely a pretty skating skirt, indeed :) I also love the tights with the plaid, a nice understated pattern mix, very cool! Thank you for your kind comment as well :)

Brandi said...

Um yes- skating lane sounds so much better- I'd be there with bells on :)

You look super adorable by the way- I love the idea of skating in a skirt

GingerPeachT said...

Wow, this skirt and these tights are lovely ! I like ice-skating but I'm always a bit scared as well. And I like to skate with my boyfriend holding my hand, but he is such a great skater that he goes too fast for me ! I never skated in the open though, it must be great under natural lights !

Stephanie said...

i went and picked up my skates from my mom's house a couple weeks ago, but it hasn't been cold enough to go skating in the park yet - it keeps raining! so jealous you got to go if even for just a little while :)
