Sometimes a Little Stalking Isn't Bad....

Have you ever found an item at a store that you loved, but it was to expensive to justify spending the asking price for the amount of times you would actually wear it?  Well this skirt was one of those items.  I was stalking it for quite sometime but at an original retail of $128.00, for a mini skirt, I couldn't justify the purchase.  Well, after many weeks of going back to check it finally went on sale, to a more budget conscious retail.  I love the how the gold metallic threads pop of the navy of the skirt.  Happy Monday Everyone!

Men's Merona Shirt, J Crew Skirt, Fossil Belt, Frye Boots, H&M Ring, Michele Watch and Purse

PS- for those of you wondering if that's my house in the last picture...of course it is every night in my dreams...  ;)


  1. LOVE the skirt, i know exactly what you mean, but sometimes you just fall in love with a great piece! Great job styling it w flat boots and casual top!

  2. looooove that skirt! and um, get away from my house ;) I knew I saw someone staring in longing!


  3. Hah! I too waited for that skirt to go on sale. It's like $39.99 now! JCrew does that which is why I'm the stalking queen! I NEVER pay full price at some stores cause i know a few weeks later they mark stuff down to next to nothing! Ended up getting the jacquard mini instead of the one you have but don't you just love the gold little flowers! Too sweet!

  4. You look fabulous, great job waiting on the skirt! It was well worth waiting on!
    I love that you used a men's shirt, I need to look into that. I can never find the right fit in the women's department.

  5. Good for you! And I love it with the tailored shirt, great combo! XX!

  6. This is such a cute outfit! I love mixing patterns. Your blog is so cute, I love the name!

  9. Good things are worth waiting for;-)
    The skirt is very pretty and I like the way you styled it, too. The bag is the perfect fashionable companion;-)

  10. Love the unexpected pairing of the gingham and metallic skirt and rugged boots! JCrew was having an amazing sale last weekend! The store was jam packed, but sadly I didn't find anything good in my size.
