So. Let's get on with it, shall we?
I got this skirt, after a long and nearly-fruitless search, at Cato of all places. Shopping with Mamaw does have its advantages! =) The fact that it was only $10 certainly didn't hurt my feelings.
The outfits, left to right.
1. For reasons unknown to me, I look significantly taller/wider/paler/jollier in this first picture. Since I know exactly nothing about editing, there didn't seem to be a way to remedy this, so... sorry.
Necklace: (Crazy, but Rue 21! I felt veeeery old in there.)
2. I have been wanting to find a new piece or two in this burgundy color, and recently at Ross I came across this cardigan-ish top in just the right shade and it was $6.99. Boom.
Top: Ross (duh, I just told you the story)
3. It's a shame you can't really see through the screen how obnoxiously bright this shirt is, but it is neon in every sense. A little blinding, in fact.
4. This is actually my favorite of the outfits but a) I was going to wear my boots and I forgot and b) you really can't tell that my sweater is a deep burgundy/purple color and that's a bummer and c) my arms look pitifully awkward. Help me.
Jean Jacket: Macy's (ancient... like, high school)
Necklace: Target (recent $4 score!)
Up close and personal.
I really could have made about 25 outfits with this skirt... it goes with just about anything! My only complain/concern is that it's a pretty clingy material which makes my hips look like living things at the right angle... but that could be a personal problem, no?
This post did prompt me to go looking for a couple of sweaters and I may have ended up pulling out a big pile even though it's still hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk (I think) but these outfits are more of the "fall edition." I could have done way more layers for winter or, obviously, summer tops and sandals. But, of course, fall is on my brain these days, even as the humidity continues to seek and destroy all hopes of a good hair day or possibility of layering.
"I'm dreaming of a cool October, without the frizzy hair I used to know..." (Bing totally should have sung this version.)
P.S. Thanks for hosting again, Audrey, and giving me an incentive to remix pieces in my closet! Once again, every time I do a post like this I feel the need to give mad props to people who do regularly. (Also, I may need time for self-reflection to reveal why I just said "mad props.")
