Skirting The Issue

Outfit Details: Top:; Skirt: H&M; Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell, borrowed; Jewelry: gift.

Recently I had a couple glasses of wine and did some online shopping. Of the items I ordered, this top is the only item I kept. Thankfully it makes a wonderful shirt to contribute to the more professional side of my closet. Working at my second job is allowing me to get more creative with my outfits since there isn’t really a dress code other than “no jeans”.


These shoes are one of my favorite pairs (and are a size too big!) that I borrowed from my Mom. I chose to play up the pearl/crochet detailing of the top by added a pearl necklace and earrings. It seemed like an easy way to enhance the neckline of the top without overpowering it.

Not Easy Being Green

Outfit Details: Top: Forever 21; Pants: Forever 21; Shoes: Missoni for Target; Necklace: Forever 21.

Man, I realized as I was typing up this post that the majority of this outfit came from Forever 21 (all purchased on different trips, too).

When I pulled this sweater out of my closet, I was feeling green. The green stripes just weren’t enough green, so I thought about pairing it with a green skirt I have. Then I saw the mint jeans that I love. Of course, I ended up choosing them.

These Missoni for Target flats have really come in handy with their plethora of colors. If I had been thinking about it though, I would have switched them out for my green leprechaun shoes.

While playing Truth or Dare with a friend of mine the other day, he dared me to stop shopping for 3 months. The last time I tried to ban myself from shopping… I failed miserably. So this is going to be incredibly difficult. ¬†However, according to the (arbitrary) rules he made I am allowed $10/week to do with what I see fit. The next time I will be able to shop (fully) will be June 22 (I wince as I write that). However, it should give me ample time with my current wardrobe.

I ended up wearing this outfit to the grocery store. You know how when you’re banned from something it makes you want to do it more? So I went and bought groceries because it was like shopping. Can we say “issues”?

These gold sandals are going to be a staple in the summer! With the weather warming up (it was super sunny and warm today), I’m excited to start wearing them regularly.

As for the necklaces–I enjoyed layering. I could have added another one, but it just seemed like too many at that point! And, although you can’t see it, I was actually wearing gold eyeliner to tie it all together.
