Warmth :: Patchwork suede skirt & Holiday cheer

by wendy


Happy Friday everyone!


Inspired by the world around me… whether it’s architecture, people, or places, I interpret these sights and feelings into an outfit.  Today, it’s food.  Hot chocolate actually.  Inspired by the rich chocolate hue, I wanted to play with this patchwork suede skirt.  With its lush texture, I kept it as the center focus by pairing it with a simple white tee and cropped trench.






Today’s hot chocolate story carries a deeper meaning.  The rich aroma, the warmth that it creates… it does something very special.  It puts us in a holiday mood, but moreover, the warmth can spread beyond us and shared with our communities.  For every cup of hot chocolate sold in stores, GODIVA will donate $1 back to Toys for Tots.  Over its life span, Toys for Tots distributed over 494 million toys to over 230 million less fortunate children.  The holidays can be blissful for some and very hard for others.  I’m so grateful for this initiative and the joy that it brings to everyone.

Thank you so much for reading and wishing you a great holiday filled with endless laughter, hugs, and hot chocolate!
