I have always been a pencil skirt kind of girl; bought this lace pencil skirt over 6 years ago! I am so happy about the return of high waisted and over the knee pencil skirts for Fall. I plan on doing a lot of pencil skirt and sweater combos for Fall transition. The sweater I am wearing is the popular J-Crew Tippi sweater. I have it in two other colors already, it’s that great! I decided to snag the pink color up since I missed out on the Zara pink sweater from last Fall. This will make for a nice, bright and soft place holder.

I have a bad habit of losing my sunglasses whenever I go shopping. It’s usually when I have to use the fitting rooms that I forget them in there. I am getting better though, after losing a couple of them you kind of become more aware. Anyway, this pair I am wearing are a rebuy, a good rebuy. I lost the original pair almost a year ago and searched high and low for a replacement pair. I couldn’t find one since they were limited edition. A couple of weeks ago, I was in the same store as I bought the original ones and found a new pair! They were on 70% off, can you believe it? Was definitely excited to have them back with me.

What do you think about this navy and pink color combo?


Oldies and a Newbie

Dress: via Ideeli
Bag:J-Crew “Edie Grand”
Blazer: Elizabeth and James
Shoes:Dolce and Gabanna
Sunglasses:Emporio Armani

This little black dress is one of many dresses I snagged from Ideeli when I was an Ideeli addict back when it first got on the scene. I had to get it altered to get the fit I wanted. The shoes are from more than five years ago when I had just graduated college and on my first post college job. The majority of what I am wearing are oldies from the back of my close. I mentioned last week how I was anticipating the arrival of my J-Crew Edie Grand bag. It’s the newbie on this outfit and I am fairly happy with it. Makes for a nice work bag.

Wishing you all a pleasant start to the week. I know Monday’s are a little rough for most people. If only weekends were three days long.
