Hi everyone! Sorry for the absence. Work has been, well, work. So much that I needed to make an office trip Wednesday. I haven’t been in to my office since the end of April so I was due to go in for a day. Going in meant two things. 1)..Wearing a new item, particularly one of my new pencil skirts; and 2) Stopping by the J’Crewlet, where dina found some goodies I had to see in person.

So the first part will be taken care of below. I will post later today or tomorrow the outlet finds.

Here’s the Polyvore.

And how I wore it.

(I don’t have the bag but I saw it IRL and it is gorgeous!)

I am so happy with this outfit, except for one thing. The tank had a rouge ribbon that stuck straight out in the most inappropriate place. AND, it was right where it could be covered by the cardi, or not. So I need to do a little stitching to lay that sucker back down.

Have a great day!

Two days in a row is pretty good for me right now. I’ll be so glad when the weekend is here. I will be completely vegging out.

Here’s today’s outfit.

Blouse: Liberty of London for Target
Skirt: J Crew Indigo Skirt
Belt: J Crew Burnished Leather Belt
Shoes: Ann Marino (TJ Maxx)

I found this blouse/tunic several years at TJ Maxx. I used to wear it ALL the time and then I stopped. I’d see it in my closet and pass it by. For two years I did this. Thursday I decided I needed to wear it one last time and decide if I really wanted to keep it or give it up for sale.

Tunic: TJ Maxx
Pants: J Crew Denim Minnie
Shoes: Toe-Tapping Flats Anthropologie
Necklace: J Crew Crystal Coletto Necklace

I should have worn heels to give myself some height with this longer tunic. I love the kimono sleeves and the material is a linen/silk blend. There is a back tie as well. And because it’s an empire waist, it hides all my bloaty-ness going on right now. This also looks great with white my white skinny jeans.

See, now I love it again and you ebayers will just have to wait.

Have a great day!

PS – I left my camera outside and it got rained on. I’m trying to open it up to dry it out but I have a feeling I may need to bust out the old Fuji for a little while until I get a new one. I even told myself, “Don’t forget it in case it rains.” Then I told myself, “Now you’ve jinxed yourself and you’ll forget it because you reminded yourself.” AND I DID!

Gigi did some recent posts (here, here and here) about items from Old Navy so I stopped by there yesterday afternoon. I found the ruffle tiered skirt she reviewed but I also found shoes! And in pretty pretty colors.

These were really cute but not what I purchased.
Women’s Burnished Strappy Wedges – $29.50 $20.00 – They come in Dark Brown and Purple, sizes 6-11M.

Faux-Leather Cross-Strap Wedges$29.50 $20.00 – They come in Black Jack, Dark Brown, Dark Blue and Yellow, sizes 6-11M. I actually like the blue and may go back and get them today.
I did purchase these (and I really wanted every color).
Women’s Braided Faux-Leather Wedges in Purple – $29.50 $25.00  – They also come in Tan and Graphite, Sizes 6-11M and have a stacked 4 inch wedge heel.
I also purchased these. I call them the Faux-Leather Gladiator Wedge. They are not on the website. They come in the Graphite, Purple and Tan and were $29.50 (my guess is they are also $20 or 25 now).
They also had these. Aren’t they the cutest ballet flats? They are not online and there was only a size 9 left in the store.
But they did have a similar-looking clutch. (not online)

And here’s my OOTD.
