Today I wore some fun stuff. Pearls and lace and rhinestones. Hard to see, but the skirt is a burgundy lace overlay on a black bottom layer.
Also, this top is from Ann Taylor, its a business in the front, party in the back mullet tee. That is, the front looks like a blouse, and the back and sleeves are t-shirt material. makes it very comfortable and forgiving. I picked it up for about $9 during one of their 70% off clearance sales.
When I first saw the lattice medallion print, I loved it from the start. Guess they figured everyone would - they used it in many pieces this spring. I thought I would get the skirt, but I didn't love the fabrication in person, so I passed. When the popover went on sale I grabbed it though, and its a winner! :) Its light and breezy and soft.
If you are a curvy girl, the Sloan skirt at Banana Republic is a great fit! I do not recommend the Sloan pants however.
The pink in it was kind of bluish, so I wore it with a lavender cardigan from the Loft.
So I have pretty much fallen in love with the No. 2 Pencil Skirt from J Crew. I am surprised, because their stuff hasn't always fit me. At all.
But I bought one of these when they were on sale + extra clearance, got it home and added two more almost immediately - they are some of the nicest skirts I have owned. They sit slightly lower on my waist, but since I am very short waisted, that works for me. No skirt riding up to my bustline today!
Right now there is limited stock / qty, but they are on sale for $50 after the coupon code EXTRA40.
