There are some upsides to being strapped to my computer and the Internet all day. During slow times I can catch up on my blog roll, grab a pair of shoes at the start of a sale before they sell out, enjoy commercial free radio on Pandora, obsessively check on the airfare for our summer trip... Last week I was lucky enough to catch Lisa from Respect the Shoes' blog sale post pretty much the minute it hit the airwaves and quickly landed a super sweet skirt from J Crew. It arrived last week and I was excited to wear it out.
The weather however has had other plans for me. Today I decided it had to happen and paired my new-to-me "springy" skirt with my winter wear.
skirt - J Crew via Lisa's blog sale; tank - Gap; cardigan - Land's End canvas; tights - DKNY; boots - Matisse; spider necklace - gift from the husband (such a romantic wedding gift, no?)
My husband did not like my navy blue cardigan with this outfit at all. He also didn't care for the skirt (it's not skin tight). But I wore it anyway and felt quite happy with it. Do you think a different color on top would work better? Perhaps pulling a pink or even the mustard yellow from the skirt?
If you haven't checked out Respect the Shoes, please do so now. Lisa has awesome fashion sense and is a master of knowing what to put with what (something I don't think I will ever grasp). Her blog sale is still running as well.
