Pencil Skirt OOTD

So, I'm excited about doing an Outfit Of The Day post!! I posted a picture of myself this past Sunday on Instagram and got some really good feedback from Jessie at Blogging While Single and Over 30. I thought it would be a great outfit to share as an OOTD. I'm sure I won't be doing these often because I feel like once you capture an outfit (such as posting pictures online - Facebook, Instagram, etc.) it lessens the bang the outfit has when you wear it again! LOL...maybe that's just my flawed thinking, but I digress.

The outfit, or shall I say outfit(s) of the day are a play off of each other. Okay, the secret is out!! Whenever I find a good piece (whether it be clothes, shoes, etc.), for a decent price, I'm very tempted to buy two. Most times I refrain, but there are a number of instances where I do not. LOL. These OOTD shows two instances where I did not refrain. Items - the blazer and the skirt!



Top Picture
Blazer: JCPenney
Shirt: I don't remember. If I had to guess I'd say Charlotte Russe or Forever 21
Scarf: I don't remember...lol. If I had to guess I'd say Rainbow
Skirt: Ross
Tights: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Payless
Earrings: Body Central
Michael Kors Watch: My CB *smiley*
Bracelet: Claire's

Blazer: JCPenney
Shirt: I don't remember. If I had to guess I'd say Charlotte Russe or Forever 21
Necklace: Beauty World
Skirt (with belt attached): Ross
Tights: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Payless
Owl Earrings: Gift from a good friend
Michael Kors Watch: My CB *smiley*
Bracelet: Claire's



I don't know if you guys know this or not, but I'm a very frugal shopper. I splurged on a few items for these outfits, so my point won't be made today. But my cutest and biggest saves were the skirts. They were $6 each! Very cute and sheek; and can be used for both work and play.

What do you guys think? I mean, cute - I know, but other than that...LOL...jk, jk!

Seriously, what do you guys think?

This is pegged as my favorite post for this week!! Check out the blog hop:

    1. Thanks friend! You know I don't get too dressed up for work and I only dress up for special occasions, which are few and far in between. Plus, when I do get cute, there's no one to take a picture for me *sad face* I need a REAL camera...so I can self-time my photos...LOL!!

    1. Thanks!! And yes...$6. I don't like spending a lot of money on clothes...lol. It's a bad habit, I guess (depending on how you look at it). I know you look nice and stylish without having to break the bank to do so, but I'm getting older and it's harder to find good, quality items at places like Charlotte Russe. Shopping has become more like a hunt for me these days...but I still hit the jackpot every now and then!

      Thanks for reading
