Sugar Rush: Jelly Donut Twirl Skirt (Heart of Haute)


I was TRYING to be good and go on a spending ban after the doozy that is Black Friday happened on top of some good ol' fashioned Christmas gift purchasing, but when I saw this skirt on the Heart of Haute Instagram, I couldn't follow my own rules.



I mean, HoH, are you flippin' kidding me with this skirt? For the girl who has way too many donut themed posessions in her life (mug, calendar, ornaments, mouse pad, jewelry, and not to mention a bathing suit and raft), this skirt was a no-brainer.


There was no way I was letting it slip away from my donut loving hands.


So I broke my spending ban and bought it immediately. Because, of course I did.


Not only is the print amazing on its own - with tons of colors to coordinate outfits with - but the pockets with the pink trim and button!?


Is there a such thing as too much perfection? Because I think this one takes the cake - cake donut, that is!


When it came to styling it for this post, it was pretty obvious to me how to do it. Is there any other brooch to wear than my donut brooch? NOPE! Is there anything else to nibble on than an actual sprinkled donut? NO WAY, JOSE! Paired with my brown wedges, green pussybow blouse, and a petti, this outfit is almost to sweet to function.


It decided to get nice and windy when I went to shoot this outfit downtown. Seeing as I was already there and had said sticky donut already in hand, I decided to just go with it. What can ya do during unexpected gusty afternoons but embrace the Marilyn moments in life?


Now, if you don't mind, I am off to eat this sprinkled donut in am embarrassingly fast manner. Please avert your eyes.


I SAID, AVERT!

  5. I'm so glad you added another doughnut-themed item to your collection! That little pocket detail is killing me, and I am always a sucker for a pussybow blouse!! Where did you get this one? It's adorable!

    1. I got it from Diva Dolls, a shop in Seattle but it was designed for them by Heart of Haute! I have so many Estelle tops from HoH on my wishlist, it's not even funny. They're such amazing tops!
