I wish I could say I wear this skirt a few times a year but, to be honest, I haven’t worn it since I first purchased it (here). Looking at that outfit now, it’s kind of basic and boring. I was always stumped by the colors and how to style it. I decided I would try to wear it at least 2-3 times this Summer or sell it. This skirt was the reason for my “Old School Crew” Remix this week. Despite the colors and the length needing to be altered I was determined to find something other than a matching tan Tee to go with it.
Enter this Linen Top from Zara. I have worn this top at least once a week since I bought it. It runs big so I grabbed a Small. It also give the illusion of a cropped top but covers well on me. I’ve worn this with skinny jeans, shorts, mini skirts. It goes with everything. I added some gold jewelry, way more than I usually wear, but felt it all went well together. The Dangling Disc Necklace is another older J Crew item that I wore with this skirt the last time.

I plan on pairing this with Chambray next.

These planned remixes are really helping me figure out what I wear the most and what I need to get rid of from my closet. This week I am going with an “Old School Crew” theme, pulling some of my older J Crew items.

Have you worn your “OSC” lately?
My son and I had a “date” night and went to see Wicked. I LOVED it! I didn’t want it to end and wanted to see it again right away. It was a great show and the boy and I had a great time. The boy looked so handsome too. He indulged me which I very much appreciate.
I Jcrew’d it out for the show.

I thought I’d look too “nude” or “brown” but the skirt really does make the whole outfit. And the shoes…oh how I love Christian Louboutin. I lusted after these shoes when they came out but the price tag was way too high. Then I walked into NM last week and there they were…on the SALE rack…the last pair…IN MY SIZE. How much better could it get? How about an extra 25% off starting the next day and they’d hold the shoes for me?!?! My lust turned to love. I felt like Wilma and Betty saying “CHARGE IT!”. (Anyone remember that episode or am I aging myself?) Ha Ha…
I was so happy. It was my birthday treat. I get one every year. (Last year I bought the Coach Francesca bag in Teal. It’s so beautiful.) Save up for it and everything. But I expected to pay/spend more so I bought a great pair of chocolate ballerina C/L flats that were on sale too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…
Life IS short…Buy the shoes (especially when they are on SALE!)
