March 6th on the Style Me March challenge calendar calls for pattern. I did two patterns. Do I get bonus points? Or at least extra credit for not getting dressed other than pajamas Sat-Sun-Mon? (Confession: I wore this same exact thing minus the scarf to the grocery store last night. I only had it on for an hour or so. I cannot be the only one who does that! Saved me ironing today, anyhow!)
I love these colors. Last week I was in an orange/pink/red mood - this week it looks like greens and blues.
So glad I snagged these flats last summer. They're such a great color and very comfy. All together this was the perfect outfit for a 50-some degree day consisting of lunch with a former co-worker, quick jaunt to the mall, picking the kids up, and going through the Sonic drive-thru for milkshakes (kids) and a diet cherry limeade (me).
Speaking of the mall, the reason I went was to check out The Limited's suit sale - $100 off a purchase of a jacket/pants combo or jacket/skirt combo. I love The Limited's suits so even though I'm not working right now, I wanted to take advantage. The first thing I picked up was this stretch sateen jacket in white:
A white jacket has been on my
need want list for awhile and I love this one because it's 3/4-sleeve and lightweight. I have so many ideas as to what to pair this with this summer! I can't wait. (Have I mentioned my slight obsession with jackets/blazers lately? Maybe a little.)
Then I sought out a skirt - I wanted a fun color; they had pencil skirts in sort of an acid green and a kelly green but none in my size. (And none in my size online, either.) Finally I settled on getting this lace overlay skirt but had to order it online as they didn't have my size in the store in that one either. Here it is:
Look, NAVY! And lace! So pretty. I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of that... if I ever get a job that is. (Seriously, I have applied for 15 jobs at this point and have heard NOTHING in return. Nothing! Even for the clerical positions for which I know I am over-qualified. It just gets more and more depressing. No wonder I wore my pajamas all weekend.)
Just got three new catalogs in the mail to drool over before I start dinner (and homework). Such is my life.
P.S. Diet cherry limeade is the BOMB. I'm just sayin'.
