I found this lovely cobalt blue skirt in my Anthropologie a few weeks ago in the sale room. It’s the Water’s Edge Skirt by Velvet and almost a straight column skirt and is lined.

Now, here’s how I picked this shirt to wear with this skirt. I knew I wanted to wear the skirt Thursday to my monthly neighborhood Ladies Luncheon but I didn’t have any idea in my head about the shirt. I grabbed the skirt and walked the length of my closet, holding it up to my shirts. They are all organized by color. When I got to the orange section I was intrigued. My peach/melon section was right after that. And that is how I came up with the outfit. I even grabbed a yellow cardigan but it was too hot to wear. I’ll wait until cooler temps to try that color combination.

Husband and I had date night Thursday night so I grabbed my favorite dress, the Stripe Blouson Dress. The Boy was off to his first high school football game. He never went last year.

I know I’m a little late but I was finally able to head to Target to see the new Calypso collection. There was plenty of items and sizes in all departments in the Target I went to, including the cute little elephant teapots in both colors. I really wanted them but have no use for them and don’t have knick-knacks around the house or kitchen.

Also plenty of Miss Trish sandals…

Then I headed over to J Crew. I really wanted to get the Olive Linen Perfect Shirt since it wasn’t online. While there I found the Modern Red color as well. Loving this color right now and only one size 6 left so I bought that too.

On me, paired with Plaid shorts #45063

I also found the Silk Serenade Dress in Deep Lagoon, marked down to $29.99 from $138, while online it is still $69.99. For that price, the Spicy Guava also tempted me, but alas, it wasn’t in my size. I’ll add another tank underneath for the summer and a cardigan for the fall/winter.

Size 6

They were gathering up items that hadn’t been selling to send to other stores. One of those was the Seersucker Pencil Skirt. The SA looked in his stack for a 6 and I brought it home with me. The rest were on their way to one of the New York stores.

Lastly, I was intrigued by the Silk Henley Top when I saw it online. It’s currently on sale for $59.50 online and in-stores. I regret not getting the Popsicle Pink in the Retro Shell so I tried this on in a 6 (I think). After seeing the Chic Chauffeur in the Melon Spice I may have to go back and get that color too. I have been looking for more dressy-casual tops to wear in the summer other than my embellished tees. And I like that the sleeves are not quite sleeveless, with a little coverage over my shoulders.
