Usually when wear this skirt I pair it with bright colors. I’ve worn it with yellow, magenta and bold black and white stripes but this is the first time that I’ve let it be the star of the outfit. I wouldn’t have believed that a green lace skirt from Target could be so versatile! I hope you’re having a great week.
I wasn’t sure if green and coral would work together but I’m happy with how this combination turned out. I wanted to try this tank top in a more office appropriate outfit (see going out version here) and I could’ve stuck with black or other neutrals but why not blasts of color?

I needed a change of scenery so I took my laptop and headed to Barnes and Noble. Slight rant – they used to have comfy chairs spread around that you could hang out in but now they only have tables and chairs in the cafe (which requires you to purchase something to sit there). I can see the “business reasons” for making the change but I’m not happy about it. I was slightly productive but did get lured in by the neighboring DSW. I managed to get out of there without purchasing anything but I did find a shoe (see below) that I am now lusting over (they didn’t have it in my size). Let the hunt begin.

I know this is a lame excuse but since I don’t have a full time job and my shopping budget has been reduced to nothing, I’m finding it more and more difficult to find inspiration in my closet. For a while I was enjoying the thrill of creating new combinations of existing pieces but now it’s seeming more like a chore. Sorry for the boo-hoo story. I’m done.

Sorry for the abundance of green lately but when I saw the Kirsten Dunst outfit I just had to do one more green combo. I’m pale and blonde so I should be able to pull it off, right? Her skirt is better and I didn’t have a matching top/cardigan combo but I think it’s still a fun look.

I’ve learned to question all of my previous “rules” about clothes. I’m embracing color. I’m wearing pink and I own several lace items. Who knew? The cut of this skirt is so sexy but the below knee length makes it age appropriate and endlessly wearable. Thank you to Pantone for making Tangerine Tango the color of 2012 and Emerald the color of 2013. These are not colors I would have thought to wear but once you start seeing them all over, it’s easier to find pieces that work for your individual style.

It was a beautiful day so I embraced it by wearing colorful jeans that make me happy. Spring = green, right? Not to mention, I went to Michigan State so green is sort of in my blood now. My mom recently sent me all my yearbooks so perhaps it prompted me to embrace some nostalgia and wrap myself in Spartan green, too. Truth of the matter is, I don’t need any excuses to wear colored jeans. Like I said, they make me happy.

I fell in love with this skirt the moment I saw it. I even broke one of my shopping “rules” and bought it at full price because I was afraid it would sell out. Unfortunately, I’m starting to doubt its flattery. The first time I wore it with a fuller shirt and jacket (see previously unpublished photo below – eek) I realized it needed a more fitted top to avoid looking too bulky. So I tried it here and here but I’m just not sure that it’s right for me. Perhaps the cut. Perhaps the pale color with my ever-pale legs. Sometimes what you love just isn’t what looks right on you. So perhaps this will go on Threadflip soon. I’m still undecided because it is such a fun and comfortable skirt to wear.
